One of Cornwall’s newest IT business has moved into its first official premises as part of growth plans that have been underpinned by its work supporting people during the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdowns.
Trusted Tech, a business that offers a wide range of IT sales and support services, has moved into a new unit on the Newham Industrial Estate in Truro.
The firm, founded by Adrian Tubb and Paul Kersley in late 2018, draws on the benefit of the pair’s near-half-century of IT industry experience which has included the management of IT for UK defence contracts, private health care companies and numerous large corporates.
When the pandemic struck, the firm had already been executing a plan to take Trusted Tech (South West) to the next level. The increased demand for their services only served to give them more confidence that the need for their services in the market was strong and would continue to grow.
“The pandemic has definitely played its part,” said Tubb, “but it’s secondary to the growth that we were already experiencing. We knew we wanted to cement the professionalism we offer within the business in the premises we operated from.
“We understood that business premises would be the way forward and, after looking around for six months, we were pleased to secure our multi-purpose office, workshop and sales premises in Newham, Truro.
“Covid and the lockdowns have played a part in the recent increase in laptop and portable device sales as well as different ways of supporting new and existing customers, including remote support.”
“We’d always planned to grow the business and take on new premises we just had no idea that it would be under these circumstances and that the majority of UK workers would be in lockdown for so long.”
