Up Time Technology was founded by Ballard locals Peter and Mary Ann Hansen in 1983. Originally, Up Time was opened as a scientific instrument repair shop in the Wallingford District of Seattle. That same year, Peter’s technical curiosity led him to the exciting new world of computers. After building his first computer, Up Time was transformed into a computer sales and repair shop.
In 1989, Up Time moved into its present location only a few blocks away from its original site. Business expanded instantaneously into new departments of technology: printers, networks, custom computer production, and of course, the increasingly popular internet. By 1999, Up Time was a completely developed operation and Washington Corporation. In 2017, Up Time shifted focus to pursue its passion for Small to Medium Sized Business Support and became a Managed Service Provider (MSP). Closing our retail store front was a hard decision and we will miss so many of our loyal home-user customers.
Today, Up Time remains family owned and operated and ready for the ever-changing world of technology.
