Laird Computer Services is a small information technology firm located in the Baltimore area. We offer a variety of IT services including web site development, graphic design, web hosting, and computer maintenance. We specialize in web sites for small businesses, fire departments, and individuals who wish to create a presence online. Our goal is to increase the success of your business or spread your name by creating a home on the world wide web.
Our company was started in 1997 when a young computer science student, Andrew Laird, was asked to design a web site for a local high school. This project was so successful that within weeks, multiple local businesses had approached him inquiring about being able to have their own web site. Initially, the work spread by word of mouth, but it soon encompassed a broad range of customers from all industries.
After being devastated by a house fire in 2002 and losing everything, the Lairds had a lot of help getting back on their feet from a number of friends and neighbors. Andrew decided to give back to the community by volunteering at the Jacksonville Volunteer Fire Company. He was quick to re-design and take over maintenance of the web site that they had. In addition, he is one of the most active members and is continuously amongst the top fire and emergency medical service responders each year. This experience has forever changed his life. In addition to years of volunteering, Andrew went on to become a full-time career firefighter with a large county fire department. His ties with the fire service continue to grow stronger and stronger each day. Laird Computer Services continues to provide specialized support to the fire service throughout the country.
During the course of the company's operation, we have built a strong reputation as a quality firm, having designed a large number of websites for people and organizations throughout the region. We continue to build a reputation of offering the high quality IT services at realistic costs. In addition to designing and performing maintenance on many sites for fire departments, Laird Computer Services also works with area businesses, political figures, and other members of the community. We work in a wide variety of formats including HTML, ASP, PHP, Macromedia Flash and DreamWeaver, and Adobe Photoshop.
What you need if you are serious about web development is a company that will stick by you, explain things, customize your site upon request to fit your needs, be willing to grow with you as you expand and be flexible when you are in need. You need a webmaster that will treat you less like a web client and more like a web partner and who takes care and urgency in the development of your site as if it were their own.
