Who We Are


Trellis was founded in 1987 by a group of engineers who believed integrity, respect and honesty were the foundational stones upon which to build a business.  The goal has always been to give our customers the expertise, the experience and the individual attention they need to maintain a lasting competitive advantage in their field, all the while adhering to ethical business practices.


Trellis’ main focus at its inception was computer network systems, their design, installation and maintenance.  Engineers ran every aspect of the business, always looking for the most innovative and advanced technology to solve customer problems.  Keeping engineers as the focal point of the company insured that new technology would always be the key to success.


In 2007 Trellis opened an arm of the original New Jersey based company in North Carolina as a woman owned business.   Trellis of North Carolina continues to offer technology solutions from computer networks to marine engineering.  


Jack Atwell has been the driving force behind Trellis and as its President has always been client focused:  “what does the client need and how can we help them fill that need with the best possible solution.”  Jack served 21 years as a commissioned officer in the NOAA Corps before his retirement and the start-up of Trellis.  As a NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) officer he was:


Commander of NOAA Research ships in the Bering Sea

Director of Marine Engineering at the NOAA Base in Norfolk, Va.

Director of IT operations for the West Coast Administrative Center in Seattle

Director of IT for the Administrative Support Center in Washington, DC

On special marine engineering and diving assignment with the Smithsonian Institution at the Harbor Branch Research Facility in Florida


Trellis also believes in being a caring community neighbor and is dedicated to returning to the community a portion of profits each year.  We have goals we wish to achieve but understand that how we achieve those goals is more important than the goals themselves.

Trellis is a full service company
