CELEBRATING 20 YEARS OF TREKEN.

From resellers of hardware & software to proudly becoming a Microsoft Gold Partner, Treken has spent the last 20 years successfully navigating and adapting to the everchanging and ever-advancing IT and telecommunications landscape. We’re so proud of the journey we’ve been on, so we wanted to take this time to take a look back at our history, and to show you why you should trust in Treken as your Managed Service Provider.

Where it all began.

Treken was founded in 2002 by Trevor and Ken (see how we came up with ‘Treken’ there?). We’d previously worked together at a local IT support company, and had a vision of setting up our own IT company which serviced the local SME market. This company would offer products tailored to the needs of the SME customer, rather than overselling products the customer doesn’t need.

Taking this honest approach to business has certainly worked. With fantastic longstanding clients (some 15 years!), a healthy turnover, and a growing, dedicated team, Treken is one of the south’s leading IT support businesses – and we’re so keen to see where our future takes us.
