Pantheon Computers prides itself in providing top-of-the-line products and services with a friendly, small-town attitude.
The company began in 1996 after co-owner Jon Stagman had worked in the information technology industry in the Twin Cities.
The company philosophy was to be a business of “helping people and businesses make better use of their computers.”

Though the company has changed with time and has innovated new business practices, the same principles are at the root of its success today. It has also grown its client base.
It has locations in three cities: Waseca, Faribault and Albert Lea. It relocated to the Albert Lea location at 920 S. Broadway in 2013.
“We have really enjoyed becoming a part of the Albert Lea community,” Jon Stagman said. “Our Albert Lea store offers unique IT support to our clients by helping them determine what computer software is best for their home or business needs.”
The Albert Lea store has the company’s largest residential base and offers repair services.
The Waseca location houses the company corporate offices, and Faribault has business offices.
It has 18 employees.
Looking ahead to the upcoming year, Stagman said the company’s main focus will be expanding into the Mankato and North Mankato market.
“Securing our footprint there is very exciting,” he said.
Jon, who owns the business with his wife, Jill, said it is their goal to stay on top of the IT industry and to be a valuable partner with businesses in helping them grow and make them more competitive.
He said the company is continuing to grow its Cloud services and it is exciting to be a part of this. They hope to let their customers know that the service can provide essential security and backup services at low monthly costs.
