We’re Locally Owned
and Operated

We’ve been locally owned and operated since we opened our doors in 1957. Our credo today is the same as it was back then — first and foremost we are dedicated to our client’s complete satisfaction with the delivery and execution of what’s been promised.

We credit our steadfast commitment to our clients as the reason for earning the reputation as the ‘go-to’ source for business connectivity solutions in the Triangle area.

Working With CEI

We transform the way clients view digital business connectivity solutions. As partners, we provide right-fit solutions and dependable services that enable clients to be there for their customers. Everything we do is based on our core values.


Our Community Roots Run Deep

We are proud of our local roots in the Raleigh-Durham community. Living and working here is the foundation of our philanthropic philosophy to give back to the community that supports us. Your trust and investment in CEI is the catalyst that drives our continuous support of our community.

We Give Back

Steward Award

When We Say Local, We Mean Local

We handle all service calls, supply requests and contract questions from our office just off of Glenwood Avenue in Raleigh. It means that if you need us in person, we can be there within 2.5 hours. Isn’t it nice to know that you have a local company supporting you, with all the resources of a national company?
