With the introduction of the first mainstream web browsers in the early 1990s, Tec-Com launched its first web site, RiskWorld, in 1995, when fewer than 25,000 web sites were online. Tec-Com followed with work on additional web sites over the years, including the creation and development of the web site for our principle client, Swift Energy Company. Currently, Tec-Com is developing mobile web sites, digital media marketing, and blogs as Internet technologies continue to evolve.
Since its inception, Tec-Com has created communications designed to reach prospective and existing stakeholders, including stockholders and partnership investors.
