NSK Inc, an IT consulting firm in Boston was recently selected as Karmaloop's IT services provider. Karmaloop is a cross-platform web retailer specializing in global streetwear fashion.

NSK has been hired to monitor and maintain the IT infrastructure for the corporate offices.

As Karmaloop is a web-retailer and has numerous electronic media ventures including KarmaloopTV, they were looking for an IT firm that had the capabilities to manage a complex Information Technology system. According to Joe Finsterwald, CTO of Karmaloop, “Karmaloop exists in a highly competitive market so it was important to me to select a vendor that had experience supporting companies of the same scale while at the same time providing service that was predicated on creativity and collaboration.”

Tim Lasonde, President of NSK Inc, says “We are extremely excited to be providing IT services and support for Karmaloop. Karmaloop is a fantastic growing company and we are pleased they have selected us as a Technology Partner to help them achieve their growth and productivity goals.” Currently NSK is working on restructuring the entire network as well as implementing overall system enhancements.

This isn't NSKs first time working with Finsterwald. He states “I chose NSK as a result of the experience I'd had working with NSK from another company. I was impressed by the quality of service and the depth of knowledge that NSK brought to the problem of building an extensible IT infrastructure.”

Karmaloop.com is a cross-platform web retailer specializing in global streetwear fashion. The Karmaloop family of sites includes online retailer Karmaloop, internet TV station KarmaloopTV and social network Junglelife (in development).
