About Us

Elvis, Cox, and a Local Legacy

In 1958, the year Cox Communications and Electronics was founded, Gainesvillians were using the latest technology to watch Elvis Presley get inducted into the U.S. Army. Today, Cox is still helping Gainesville businesses connect to the world using the most modern technology available – with business phone systems, data networks, and security systems. We purchased the company from the Cox family back in 2010. Carrying the torch into the business’ next 50 years, we are committed to continuing Cox’s legacy of personal, local service and high-quality products at great prices.

A Passion for Local Business

We have a real passion for local business, and we understand how important great tech is to a business’ success. Every business needs great technology to be able to connect to its customers and protect its assets. Cox provides the top-of-the-line tech solutions Gainesville businesses need to thrive and feel safe in today’s market.

Customer Service is our Top Priority

We know how frustrating it can be to deal with phantom reps in other states (or even countries) when you’re trying to fix an already-complex problem with your phone, data or security systems. That’s why we are in town and in person, so you deal with a human – not a machine – when you need help. Whether it’s promptly responding to your call or explaining technical details so you can understand them, we empower your company to manage its telecommunications, IT and security devices.

We look forward to serving you!

Giving Back

We believe in making positive contributions in our local community as well. Cox Communications and Electronics Inc. is a proud member of the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce, and we regularly donate time, money and equipment to local charities, including:
  • The Children’s Center for Hope and Healing restores dignity and hope to those affected by child sexual abuse by providing counseling, education and advocacy. In 2010, Cox donated and installed a phone system with voicemail to help counselors and volunteers stay connected with each other and the families they serve.
  • The Boys and Girls Clubs of Hall County provides a safe environment for children after school and during summer months. In 2010, Cox donated a new phone system with voicemail and auto attendant to the new Boys and Girls Clubs facility on Memorial Park Drive in Gainesville, and a paging system, multi-line phones and computer accessories to the teen center.
  • Gainesville First United Methodist Church received data cabling, patch panels and labor at no cost from Cox as a “thank you” to an organization that does so much for our community.
  • Challenged Child & Friends has been helping children with developmental delays and disabilities learn and grow for more than 25 years. In 2009, Cox and MAJ-JAC worked together to provide Challenged Child & Friends with a new phone system and voicemail.
  • The Northeast Georgia Chapter of the American Red Cross has stayed connected to the community it serves with help from Cox since 1995.
  • Good News Clinics provide medical and dental care at no cost for uninsured residents of Hall County who cannot afford to purchase health care services. Since 1997, Cox has been working with Good News Clinics to make sure the lines of communication stay open between the clinic and the community it serves.
  • The Edmonson-Telford Center for Children provides services for Hall and Dawson county children who are victims of sexual abuse, physical abuse, or neglect. In 2009, Cox was able to donate installation of a new phone system at the Washington Street location.
