Non-Profit Efficiency Corp.
Telco Pros Inc. Founded
Telco Pros Inc. was founded in June of 2009 by Roger Zona with a mission to partner with businesses and non-profits, driving down corporate operating expenses and eliminating waste within their budget wherever possible.
In 2010, Telco Pros Inc. developed the trade name Non-Profit Efficiency Corporation (NPEC) in order to focus on and better serve the needs of our growing non-profit client base. To this day, we assist hundreds of churches, nursing homes, schools, medical facilities, and government municipalities.
In 2011, NPEC added COO Karl Shaw, developing the trade name TPI Efficiency and once again applying our unique service offering to the for-profit sector.
Due to unprecedented growth, in 2015 TPI moved to 2020 Center Street. This historical landmark—which can be traced back to the beginning of American industrialization—houses our growing firm and serves as a regional hub for allied companies, vendors, and suppliers.
In 2017, we fortified our hands-on approach to customer service, opening branches in Columbus, OH and Baltimore, MD, with several additional locations slated to open soon!
