In the BeginningAs our name implies, network design is our speciality. Since 1997, Network Design Technologies (NDT) has supported and empowered clients in various capacities over the years to help businesses remain Sarbanes-Oxley compliance, reach technology goals and reduce hardware expenses. Joseph Ruffin founder and Chief Executive Officer of NDT started as a one man IT specialist offering desktop support, in home software/computer training, server support and offsite data backup and storage management.
Data Backup and StorageWith the growing demand for business to be HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley compliant, backup and storage quickly became a niche for the company. At its peak, NDT provided 3 separate server collocations, with built-in redundancies, to operate small data centers running 24/7. Providing essential services to small law offices and doctor offices well before the widespread acceptance of cloud-based computing and systems management.

Telecommunications NetworkingEvolving with the changes in technology and understanding the local demand for network wiring in the Philadelphia tri-state area, NDT started to gain traction in a completely different IT sector: telecommunications. Shortly thereafter the company would employ several family members and contractors to keep up with pulling network, VoIP and fiber optic wires — all tested and tagged and NDT. The company would ultimately absorb the assets of failing competitors including their field technicians and client base marking the start of another growth transition.
Consulting and Solution ProvidersTwenty years later, NDT has gradually expanded to operate a network of consultants and technicians in CT, DE, FL, GA, KY, MD, MI, MO, NC, NJ, NY, PA, RI, TX, VA and Washington, D.C. Our objective is to create a company which everyone is a hands-on contributor that feels comfortable sharing ideas and opinions while delivering state-of-the-art integration of technologies to customers.
NDT has headquarters in Wilmington, DE with satellite offices in Philadelphia, PA and Baltimore, MD.
