How it all started
Gary, the Managing Director always had a passion for technology ever since he was a young boy, he excelled in Computer science at college and started his career as a programmer but he always preferred working with the technical aspects of computers.
Compex IT was born when a large precision engineering company enlisted Gary to help them respond to technological advances and take their business to a new level. Their success got people talking and soon after, other companies were asking for support with their own technology and IT strategies; not only engineering and manufacturing companies but a huge range of other businesses.
Word of mouth is a wonderful thing but there are only so many hours in the day, so it was soon time to enlist someone who shared the same passion and knowledge.
Mark had also grown up in Birmingham and had followed the same career path. Equally fascinated by all kinds of technology, he’d spent just as many hours tinkering with computers and taking bits of machinery apart and putting them back together again. It was only a matter of time before a successful new business partnership was born, and the rest, as they say, is history.

We`ve worked with Compex IT for many years and we have a great relationship with them. As we have grown, Compex IT have worked alongside us offering guidance and help in moving our IT forward. It`s a relief knowing that any technical issues will be resolved promptly and effectively and that we can trust that they`ll always do the best for us
The Compex IT guys give me piece of mind as I know our business is always covered, we`ve worked with them for a number of years now and they have always given us excellent service, they are very responsive to our needs and our issues are always rectified in a very quick and efficient manner. It`s nice not to have to worry about our IT as we can leave it in Compex IT`s more than capable hands.
We`ve recently started working with Compex IT and their advice on keeping my business secure has been excellent. They have recently completed a project where they fully secured our computers and I feel much happier that things are a lot more secure now. Keeping our business safe, especially these days, is really important to me so I`m relieved Compex are there to always assist us.
It`s that personal approach that does it for us, something our previous IT company just didn’t give us, they feel like a part of our team and I feel they really care about me and my business, that makes them stand out.
I have found Compex IT to be extremely professional each time we have used their services. They are very knowledgeable and efficient, resolving our IT issues quickly to enable us to continue working. I would not hesitate to recommend them.
We began working with Compex IT only recently and we have to say their service is amazing. The level of customer service, personal interaction, proactive approach and the knowledge of the complex beasts that are GDPR and Cyber Security is really impressive. It’s given us such peace of mind to know that we are supported by a great team. It really shows that when you’re running a business, it’s not just about the doing or the expertise, it’s also about the customer service and the relationship. For us this has always been the key and it’s clear Compex share the same approach.
Compex IT took over our IT support services from a larger IT company as we felt they were not providing the service we needed and we have found them to be very informative when discussing our businesses requirements and reactive to any problems. Compex IT not only solve the current problem but try to identify and remedy the root cause. We have been extremely satisfied with the service provided by the Compex team.
I’ve been extremely happy with the all of IT Support services provided by Compex IT over the past 7 years including our workstation and server support and would thoroughly recommend them for their high ongoing levels of customer service to any business.
The team of engineers at Compex IT are brilliant compared to our old IT support company, they are personable and friendly and always willing to help. The response times we receive are always very prompt and the engineers always have an excellent level of knowledge. I would have no hesitation in recommending Compex IT for any IT requirements needed.
Following my initial contact, Compex IT immediately came into our office and dealt with our company`s outdated and complicated IT system with extreme professionalism, expertise and patience.
Small manufacturing firms in the UK have had a reputation for being behind the times, but working with Compex IT to support our family business growth and use of technology that image has never applied to us. We plan forward and so does our IT company.
We have used Compex IT for 10 years now. I find them invaluable. They are there whenever I need them. They are as much a part of our team as the people who work in our building. Their support, advice, recommendations and experience is second to none. I can’t imagine them not being at the end of the phone or responding to my emails!!
Tim talks about why they moved to Compex IT from a larger IT company, how easy it was to move from them and response times that they now benefit from.
