Applied Connective Technologies to move into former Shopko Hometown building

July 7, 2019 – Applied Connective Technologies, a local managed technology service provider headquartered in Albion, is celebrating its 15th year in business this month.

The company is also making plans to move into a larger building — the former Shopko Hometown building at 2585 State Highway 14.
Ed Knott, owner of Applied Connective Technologies, said the purchase of the building was effective June 7, and demolition of the interior has been underway for several weeks.

An extensive renovation of this building is planned. “The goal is to move into the new building by November, and definitely before the end of 2019,” Knott said.

As the use of technology has grown in rural Nebraska, the work of Applied Connective Technologies has evolved. State-of-the-art technology is now required by a variety of businesses in rural Nebraska, and Ed Knott and his team of technical experts at Applied Connective are providing it.

Knott, a native of Taylor, NE, established Applied Connective with Tom Krings in 2004 as a two-person operation offering commercial phone systems and IT services to local businesses. The business started in Cedar Rapids, and soon moved to an office space on Third Street in Albion in 2006. The first additional employee was hired in 2008.

Since that time, the company has steadily grown and evolved into a full-service technology group with 17 employees and additional offices in Fullerton and Columbus. Due to necessity and demand, Applied Connective has built upon its initial offerings and now provides a wide range of technology solutions, including Internet, managed IT, phone systems, access control, surveillance and professional audio/video.

The company will soon have 19 total employees with the addition of two new technicians in late March.
