Our Story

North Idaho

Our History

My wife, Carey, and I have lived in Bonners Ferry for 24 years. We raised four kids in Bonners Ferry and continue to love calling North Idaho our home.  


I have worked as the Information Technology Director at the Kootenai River Inn Casino & Spa for 14 years, and started Mike Cox Computers 5 years ago.

Originally specializing in Computer Repair and Building New Computers, the company grew into designing, installing, and managing office networks. Over the years we have also added offsite data storage and backups, Wireless Bridges (connecting two points together) and security camera systems. 

The core of our business has always been to support the technologies we offer our clients.

For a business, the shine of a pretty new computer system wears off quickly and the everyday dependability on the system takes over. That is where we shine…supporting you and your business everyday. 

In person, or via remote connection, we are there to maintain the IT tools you depend on, and when there is an issue, we respond quickly and give you our full service until the issue is resolved. 

Expanding To


We have always had clients in Sandpoint and Bonner County (and in Montana and Washington). But last year one of our sons, Ryan, moved home to North Idaho and joined Mike Cox Computers, opening a home office in Sandpoint. So now, for Sandpoint and Bonner County Businesses, along with being your IT remote support solution, we can be there in person as well.


After serving in the Navy as a communications specialist aboard the fast attack class submarines, Ryan worked in IT for companies in and around the Boise area. Ryan had always planned on moving back to North Idaho and when the opportunity to join his dad and help grow Mike Cox Computers into Cox Techs, Ryan had his reason to move home. 

New Name

With Ryan joining the business, and with an eye to future expansion, Mike Cox Computers is now Cox Techs. New name, same personal and professional IT business solutions and personal custom computer builds.   

You don’t have to know all of the “technical” language or how it all works. That is what we are here for. We want to remove the stress from IT so you can focus on your business.
