About Us


At American Computer Services, we strive to be your number one go to for all of your IT needs. Whether it be for sales, repairs, or just to talk nerd with us. We want to meet you!

Who are we?

We are a family owned business that was raised around Rochester and have grown up here our entire lives. At any time, you can come in the shop and see myself, my wife, our newborn son and possibly one of our puppies!

Here is a little bit about myself and my background:

Ernie Magar

President/General Nerd

As a boy, I grew up tinkering with electronics. I was always taking them apart even when they weren't broken and learning how things worked. I graduated from Gates Chili High School with a focus on electronics and robotics at Boces 2 We-Mo-Co. From there, I went on to Alfred State and majored in Network Administration. Fresh out of college I went into the telecom business and began installing Cable, Internet and Phone for Time Warner Cable. Within a year, I was inside working with the Tier 3 phone support. Eventually, I got tired of sitting behind a desk all day and switched paths with CVS Pharmacy. I began supporting the IT in all of their stores in Western New York. My focus was on their servers, phone systems, laser printers, point of sale devices and anything else on site that you could imagine. After the better half of a decade, I decided I wanted to get back into the telecom world and took a position at Frontier Communications. While there, I programmed and installed business phone systems and made sure all of the local 911 centers remained operational without any interruptions of service. Due to corporate downsizing, I found myself searching for a new career a few years later and ended up expanding my horizons into the bank security world. Anything from alarm systems, access control, CCTV, ATMs, vaults, and safes. To say my experience is vast would be an understatement. I look forward to meeting you all and becoming a staple in the Spencerport community!
