Dukinfield firm celebrates appeal in new home

Dukinfield firm Zen Tec Network Solutions are celebrating moving into their new home at The Old Court House on Chapel Street.

Throughout the latest lockdown the computer company has become synonymous with refurbishing donated laptops and supplying them to schools for pupils learning remotely - as previously reported on these pages.

They have refurbished and donated literally tens of thousands of pounds worth of laptops and computer tech to schools locally across the region - even investing their own money to upgrade the computers where necessary.

Mike Brooks and Cerid Grimshaw at the company have no intention of stopping their good work either as they move into their new business premises.

They are appealing for any businesses, schools or members of the public to donate old tech to them so that it can be updated and reused for schools and those who need it most.

Cerid said: “In total we have now donated over £47,000 worth of tech and we want to continue to help close the digital divide in society that still exists.

“So we would like to ask schools, businesses and the general public to think of us when they look to upgrade their tech and give us first refusal as donations are in short supply and we are still struggling to get enough tech to carry on our donations appeal.”

In our picture above, the business had welcomed Alessi Bottomley to complete her work experience with them as Covid restrictions ease. Alessi is studying for a Level 3 extended diploma in Business Enterprise.

Meanwhile Zen Tec are now looking to take on an apprentice of their own and anyone interested in applying can contact enquiries@zentecns.co.uk
