ramsac celebrates 30 years of being at the heart of IT
21st March 2022
Leading Surrey-based IT Service Provider, ramsac is celebrating its 30th birthday in March. The company was incorporated on March 17th 1992 by Rob May and Sally Cooper, at a time when a personal computer cost around £5,000 and the internet only accounted for 1% of business communications – and was accessed mainly via a dial up modem! 25 years later and ramsac has gone from strength to strength in a technical environment that was not even imaginable when ramsac formed.
With an initial team of just two people, who were originally supporting four client’s IT needs, ramsac has grown to 100 colleagues who last year dealt with over 40,000 support cases and delivered thousands of hours of IT management and project delivery. ramsac now supports the IT needs of 9,000 end users across 175 organisations. Growth has been consistent and entirely self-supported, with longevity being a feature of the business; their longest standing employee celebrated his 26th year at ramsac recently.
Over the years ramsac has been able to collect a number of awards and recognitions, as well as being Gold Partners with major industry partners such as Microsoft, Dell, Sonicwall and Sophos, they were just named by Surrey Business Awards as it’s ‘Large Business of the Year’ and most recently were awarded the prestigious 3 Star accreditation rating, reflecting “world class levels of workplace engagement” in the 2022 Best Companies to Work For survey, and named as the second highest rating in their sector by the Best Companies team.
Whilst the business has gone through an almost constant change, with new services, rebrands and exciting new clients, they are most proud of their culture which has remained constant since day one, focussing on great service, delivered honestly by friendly people that really care about helping clients to get the best out of IT. The business believes it’s why they still have one of those first 4 clients under contract today.
ramsac will be celebrating this milestone throughout the year with several events, including a big summer party where employees will come together with their families and a ‘90s week in March with lots of fun activities planned.
Managing director of ramsac, Rob May commented, “I’m immensely proud of all that we’ve achieved in the last 30 years of ramsac, we’ve created a brilliant culture and an award-winning business that is respected in the industry, we’ve launched the ramsac academy and supported 1000’s of people all whilst growing and developing an amazing team of people. The fantastic thing about running the company is it never fails to challenge, interest, and excite me, we repeatedly innovate, launching new additions to our services and refining our delivery model. I’m excited about our future and the opportunities that it holds for all of us.”
As ramsac enters its 30th year they are preparing to launch its new secure+ solution, to complement their totalIT solution. secure+ will improve the cybersecurity and resilience of ramsac’s clients and give organisations peace of mind, with the knowledge that their IT is in safe hands.
