Network Hardware Resale - The World’s Leading Pre-Owned Network & Data Center Equipment Provider

Our History

Founded by Chuck Sheldon, a former IBM Sales executive and Mayor of Hermosa Beach, California, Network Hardware Resale (NHR) originally began business in 1986 focusing on the re-marketing of midrange IBM computers. Sensing a trend in network equipment needs in the early 1990's, Chuck and his son John successfully reoriented the business to focus exclusively on pre-owned, used and refurbished networking equipment – primarily Cisco. The result was the pioneering of today's secondary equipment market.
