IT company relocates
Complete I.T. Computer Repair and Network Solutions has moved to a new location at 2664 Cypress Ridge Blvd., in Wesley Chapel.
The company was running out of space at its former location, so it needed to find larger quarters, according to a company news release.
In announcing the shift, the company thanked its customers for helping it to be successful, and it previewed some news it plans to announce later.
“We have expanded our workforce so that we could handle additional customers. Quietly, we even started a new division that we will share with everyone in the future when the time is right,” the release says.
