Our Unique Beginnings

Spectra then…
spectraThen Meet Nathan Thompson. During his second semester as a college freshman, majoring in Electrical Engineering/Computer Science at University of Colorado, he wasn’t making enough money at his summer job to cover looming tuition and rent bills. With a limited amount of time and a desire to put his knowledge to work, he decided to use his last $500 and start a business buying and reselling used computer equipment.

Spectra today…

Fast forward to today. Nathan’s $500 investment is now a thriving, privately held company located in Boulder, Spectra Logic. Spectra employs more than 400 people worldwide and is a leading manufacturer of tape and disk-based data storage solutions for the archive and backup of mission critical data to organizations around the globe. Whether storing the footage from the latest episodes of the Discovery Channel’s original programming, capturing data sent back from the NASA Mars rover, or keeping the world safe by archiving video surveillance footage, Spectra Logic plays a vital role in the storage of data for a wide variety of organizations all over the world.
