3D datacomm was formed in Fredericton, New Brunswick in 1998. The company's primary focus was around the structured cabling industry supporting Corporate, Government and Educational sectors. By the early 2000's, 3D had expanded its offerings to include a host of AV technologies aimed at the K-12 education market. Further expansion saw the opening of new offices in Halifax (2005) and St. John's (2007) as well as continued growth as an AV company branching out into core Government and Corporate sectors.
The convergence of the IT and AV industries, over the past five years, has played into 3D's core strengths. With a solid understanding of server room, classroom and boardroom environments, 3D datacomm has emerged as Atlantic Canada's largest Professional Audio Visual Integrator.
Having opened two additional offices in Saint John (2015) and Moncton (2014), 3D has continued to expand its presence and commitment to providing Atlantic Canadians with the right mix of AV products, services and professional resources required to bridge the gap between technology and true collaboration.
