Behind The Scenes At FixMeStick HQ

Welcome to the FixMeStick HQ! Have you ever wondered exactly what goes into making the FixMeStick or the StartMeStick? These tiny USBs are jam packed with technology and have a great team supporting them – all out of our office here in Montreal, Canada (with the proper sanitary guidelines in place, of course).

Here’s a sneak peek at the behind-the-scenes process that bring you our award-winning devices!

Located in an industrial loft-space in the vibrant city of Montreal, the FixMeStick Headquarters is a bustling office filled with our hard-working engineers, cheery support specialists, dedicated marketing team, fun-loving accountants, and of course, our beloved founders Marty and Corey. Since March 2020 we’ve been working from home due to covid-19.

Both the FixMeStick and StartMeStick are prepared right here in our headquarters with the help of our talented warehouse team. There’s a lot that goes into making sure these USBs are ready to go and reaching you as quickly as possible!

Other than the actual manufacturing of the USBs, everything takes place in our office. Once the FixMeStick and StartMeStick USBs arrive from our suppliers, there are quite a few steps we need to take before we ship them out to our customers worldwide.  

First, the USBs are plugged into a charging board where they are formatted with the latest and most up-to-date technology – our FixMeSticks are formatted with our comprehensive and innovative multi-scanner technology. While our StartMeSticks are formatted with our fast, private, and secure operating system! This is where the magic happens!

The USBs are each uploaded and configured to run our latest software!

After the FixMeSticks and StartMeSticks are loaded with the latest technology, they’re ready for the next stage of the shipping process!

Once they are properly packaged, they’re off to their next destination – we ship to individual addresses, like your home, or to our retail locations across North America and Europe!

    I started using the fms a couple of years or so ago. It seems to to a very good job of getting out those unwanted stuff that will ruin your pc. ????
    Just wondering, how long is a fms good for? In other words, what is the life expectancy of a fix me stick? Thank you.

      Hey Thomas,

      FixMeStick is a subscription based service so it depends on your subscription. If you want to send us the serial number from the side of your FixMeStick we can take a look for you.

      Best,
      Keegan
