It began in 1996 as a dream for a great company.
This year we will celebrate the people and connections that make up 20 years of ettain group culture and success.

A lot has changed in 20 years


Our logo in 1996

When ettain group was founded we went by the name of TechSolutions. This is the original TechSolutions logo created by founders Jeff Harris and Brian Deblitz.

Our logo today

In 2001 ettain group was formed. While the logo has gone through a few modifications over time, this is the logo that we use today.

The internet in 1996

From CRT monitors, large desktops and non-responsive websites, companies were just beginning to enter the online age when ettain group began. We’ve come a long way from what our first website looked like and how it was accessed.

The internet today

Technology sure has advanced in the last 20 years. With wireless Internet accessible wherever you go via mobile technology and smart phones, users are no longer tied down to clunky desktops.


The most request skill sets from the 90s and the start of the new millennium is vastly different from the most sought after, mobile-influenced skills of today.

Today’s Most Requested Skillsets

With the technology industry constantly evolving and improving, some tech skills have a high turnover rate, quickly becoming obsolete. ettain group always stays abreast of technological advancements to ensure we have access to candidates with the most sought after skills.
