Servicing more than 4,500 customers and 385,000 rooms nationally, Bulk TV has been providing custom television, Internet and telephone solutions since 2004.

“The companies included on the NC100 are some of the most innovative and progressive companies in the state, and we are honored to be named among the esteemed list,” says Bulk TV President Tom Conley. “Bulk TV was founded as an alternative television option for businesses, and our focus has always been to offer leading edge technologies and unparalleled customer support at more competitive prices than our competition.

McGuire helped develop the initial ranking as an accountant in Charlotte in 1984. “They deserve more recognition for all their contributions to our state and our people.”
