Holsworthy – A Fantastic & wonderful community to live & work in.
Devon Tech Services first opened its doors in 2014 with the help of Andrew Kemp. A lot has changed since then, but Devon Tech Services was trading 12 months before that from home and within 12 months, the business went from a home run small business into a local store based in the heart of Holsworthy.
In 2013, I started Devon Tech Services as a basic contracting business. I would offer my services to businesses and computer shops who needed extra labour but couldn’t commit to employment. It worked well as I was able to fill in when shops got busy. My main shop I spent most of my time in was Andrew Kemps HCS (Holsworthy Computer Services). The business was well established but unforeseen circumstances saw the business close and opened an opportunity for myself to step in place with Devon Tech Services.
We opened our doors on the 4th of January 2014 to what we thought could be a make or break for my business, but Holsworthy made the business, it made it a huge success. Within 8 months, we were contacted by Which? who had heard on there forums about our services and endorsed us as a trusted trader on what was a very new scheme for them, we were one of the first computer shops to sign up to the scheme in the South West.
To celebrate this achievement, we invested a sum of money back into the shop and revamped the workshop separating it from the store front. The goal was to increase productivity while giving the shop a retail style to it. It worked, another success and the workshop has been churning over successfully since.
In 2015, we started out with mobile device repairs such as smartphones which was again, another huge success and has brought the shop more business since the first day we offered the service. By carefully selecting our suppliers for parts, we were able to offer better quality repairs with warranty for the same price as our competitors.
2015 also brought another interesting project and investment, this time, it involved the town centre. We connected Holsworthy town centre with Free WiFi which offered visitors and shoppers free internet access with no accounts or signup required. This service has been live since and has had huge support. Its even influenced Bideford Town Council and Barnstaple soon started testing their own version of our system. In April 2017, we re-invested funds into the WiFi network upgrading it to the state of the art Wireless AC Dual Band for better coverage on newer devices. This was funded by Devon Tech Services & Moo Free Dairy Free Chocolates in Holsworthy.
Devon Tech Services has been a big part to Holsworthy, sponsoring local events such as St Peters Fair.
