2 Tin Cans And A String started out in 2001 as Comkraft Telecom to provide and service a wide variety of telecommunications products and services to our customers. Over the years the name ComKraft was consistently mistaken for a large Cable TV provider. We felt a name and identity change was in order. As we market tested the name 2 Tin Cans And A String we noticed that almost everytime we said the name a smile quickly came over the face of our customer. We thought a smiling customer is a happy customer. The SMILE along with the fact that those 2 Tin Cans And A String visually represented the products we sold (phones, cameras and wiring) and also reinforced our mission to deliver to our customer the most simplified approach to solving their technology challenges. We came to the conclusion that 2 Tin Cans And A String was the name that our customers will remember.
2 Tin Cans And A String is strategically located off of Rt. 283 near the HIA, 83, 81 and PA turnpike allowing us to effectively service the cities of Harrisburg, Lancaster, Mechanicsburg, York, Reading, Lebanon, Carlisle and their surrounding communities.
