The home of technology in North Central Montana
Defining Jathco's goals requires that we review the people that make up the company. Jathco is a gathering of individuals that take great pride in serving Montana's Golden Triangle's electronic needs. Jathco's staff has several factors in common that help make providing quality service to the Golden Triangle our pleasure.
First, all of Jathco's staff takes special pleasure in working with, on, and in the rapidly growing technology industry. It is the love of computers and electronics that allows Jathco's staff to keep pace with - and better understand - this industry.
Second, all of Jathco's staff wants to live in the Golden Triangle area and have the opportunity to raise our families in the special environment that only rural Montana can provide. Most of the staff was born and raised in the Golden Triangle and, despite the many opportunities in the computer and electronics industry worldwide, chose to return home to the "best" place.
It is this commitment to electronics and computers, and to the rural way of life, that makes us work so hard to serve and maintain a good working relationship with our customers. We have known most of our customers our whole lives. They are our neighbors, friends, and classmates. We are keenly aware that we need to service our market well or it will not exist tomorrow. We recognize that by supporting our customers and the local area we are, in fact, supporting ourselves. Money and work that is kept local is the backbone of the survival of the rural way of life. While we cannot please everyone, we are committed to putting our customers needs first in sales, service, and support. We continually thank our customers for allowing us to do what we love in the area we love.
In the fall of 1980, Jim and Jean Aitken started Jathco Systems to help bring quality satellite television to rural Montana. They had been involved in the electronics industry since the 1960's and this was a logical extension of their electronic repair business.
In 1989, a growing need for computer equipment and computer expertise prompted a partnership between Llew and Carole Jones and the Aitkens. As the company grew first Sandra Broesder and later Tracy Sheeler joined as partners to the company. Sandra retired from the computer business and Colleen Moritz became a partner.
In 1994, Jathco added FM radio support and sales. Jathco carries and supports a full line of Midland and Uniden Radio products. With all the necessary programming equipment and a boom truck for base station installation, Jathco is your full stop radio shop. Radioshack also has a presence and Bullhead Sports to give the shopper a full range of products to choose from.
