Our Story

Sidebarr Tech provides IT services to a wide range of customers, from mom and pop stores and large school districts to restaurant chains and regional banks. Our customers are located throughout the St. Louis metropolitan area and across the United States.


Tom Schilling founded Sidebarr Technologies in 2009. The business started as a one-man PC repair and sales shop at a small location on the north end of Waterloo, IL.

Within just a year, Tom hired his first employee at the company, which has since grown to a diversified IT company with nearly 15 employees. Sidebarr moved to its current location at 650 North Market Street in Waterloo, IL., in XX.

In 2018, Tom partnered with Rich Lyons to further expand the services provided by Sidebarr Technologies. This partnership has proven invaluable to our business, customers, and community.

Today, Sidebarr Technologies has grown into a full service tech company comprised of teams of network and system engineers, tier one support, field technicians, and a Sales Team.
