who do we work for?
We work for small to mid-sized businesses with 5 to 250 people, local government, and NHS sites. We also work for one or two larger customers and a few charities.
Most are in London and the South or near Norwich. Fast Internet and good communication tools means that we’re not limited by geography and can definitely help further afield.
For larger organisations we work with the IT team providing specific knowledge. Smaller companies often don’t have a dedicated IT manager and fully outsource everything to Technology Box.
Protect the environment. We repair and reuse where possible, we use renewable electricity, we absorb CO2 by planting trees and we are steadily reducing our electronic and packaging waste. The whole team walks or bikes to work.
Be resilient and secure. We test our network for vulnerabilities and ensure that there are no single points of failure. We have company savings rather than debt. Our team is distributed and can work from anywhere.
Respect your privacy. We don’t make cold calls and we don’t send unsolicited mail. When we contact you it should be useful. We never share your data and use the best available tools to protect any information we hold.

Who we are
Ian and Rachel founded Technology Box in 2006 after cooking up the plan during a year travelling. Prior to that they’d worked in a range of corporate and government jobs, including oil platform design (Rachel) and infrastructure security (Ian).
We started with IT support but discovered early on that the telecoms industry needed networking and information security skills. We quickly gained several mid-sized customers with Avaya phone systems.
From there, our product line has grown to include cloud services, different phone systems, live streaming and large scale Wi-Fi. We also became a micro telecoms company along the way.
Since the beginning we tried to make the business environmentally sustainable. In 2016 for our 10 year anniversary we decided to double down on our efforts and also let people know what we were doing. We’d like to spread good practice with energy saving and waste reduction.
We’re all about incremental improvement, so watch this space for more: better security, sustainability and faster automated processes.
Community and CONNECTIVITY
Based in sunny Hastings, we’re part of a community venture called Rock House. This is an ambitious mixed-use project combining work space, living space and community uses. Everybody does their bit and our input has been to turn the building into a high speed Internet hub.
