A new business that repairs computers, cell phones and other electrical devices, and can also install security cameras, has opened in Douglas.
Douglas PC Solutions, located at 1065 F Avenue, Suite 5 (in the Pioneer Title building), has been open for several months. Hours of operation are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Owners Kenny Green and Juan Borquez said they both were previously behavioral health counselors and job coaches and were part of the workforce between Douglas and Bisbee.
“We helped people get into their own business,” Green said. “It led to electronics and we eventually decided to go into business for ourselves.”
Green feels the market for computer and cell phone repair in not only Douglas but also southern Cochise County could be better and he is hoping to change that.
“I’ve been working in an IT Department for Wellness Connections for three years,” he said. “I know what its like to work for a corporation and I felt we could bring something helpful to the community.”
He says one of his favorite things about his job is trouble shooting.
“People will bring in a piece of equipment that is not working and really have no idea what is wrong with it,” he said. “I like to get into the equipment and find out what is wrong with it.”
Since opening, the duo says business has been steady but admittedly, they have seen a slight drop off over the summer.
“We offer anything from IT work to custom building computers, cell phone and computer repairs,” he said. “We also work with Linux and we can install security cameras at your home or business.”
Green said they will show up to your home or business at no charge and talk with you about what type of security system is best.
“We’ve done several home and business installations already,” Green said. “We just finished a job at a residence where the owner had been robbed of his smoker and a couple of bikes.”
Green said the average two camera residential installation will run about $300.
“We also provide three months of free tech support for the cameras in case something happens to them,” he said. “Since we have opened it seems the community has embraced us. We’re growing and I’m really excited about the response.”
