Peripheral Outlet was formed in 1986 by 14-year-old, Jeff Thompson, with $2,500 he had saved from a newspaper route in Ada, Oklahoma. Thompson was named Young Entrepreneur of the Year in 1994 by the U.S. Small Business Administration, and profiled in Fortune magazine. Other family members were employed in the business, including brother Ryan Thompson who later founded another company.

By 1996 the company's sales had increased by 650% and was named to the Inc. magazine 500 list of the fastest growing private companies. Peripheral Outlet incorporated and became Peripheral Enhancements Corporation (PECO).

In 1998 PECO acquired the NewerRam division of Newer Technology and opened offices in Dallas, Texas.
