Pugh Computers

Origins

Originally founded in 1981 by local businessman Jeffrey Pugh, the business was incorporated in 1991, when Mike Young joined the board as Sales Director and has grown consistently year on year to become a major local employer with 20 staff.

Success Factor

A prominent player in the Wales Fast Growth 50 index of Wales’ top companies for the last 3 years, the company attributes its strong market position to the close working relationships it has built with suppliers such as Microsoft, Macromedia and Adobe – partnerships which have helped Pugh Computers to develop purchasing programmes to satisfy the needs of education establishments and charities and deliver low cost software.

The Future

Pugh’s continued growth has resulted in a recently opened new extension to its impressive state of the art headquarters building in Llanon near Aberystwyth, set on the hillside with magnificent views over Cardigan Bay. The location of the business, which makes maximum use of today’s modern technology means that they do not need to be city based. The staff deal daily with businesses throughout Britain and Ireland and have the added benefit of living in one of the most beautiful regions of Wales. The Directors sees this element together with the ability to create employment locally as one of the most rewarding aspects of running Pugh Computers. Helping individuals to achieve their potential through training and bringing on their skills is not only immensely rewarding but is a key factor in the company breaking the £13 million barrier. The company wherever possible recruit locally and always promote opportunities through the local press and their website www.pugh.co.uk. With the investment in infrastructure and staff, combined with an open style management approach and current government education and learning initiatives, Pugh Computers is well placed to continue on its growth path.
