The Dumfries office of Activ Technology has built on its commitment to become an integral part of the communities in which it operates.
Activ Technology, for the second year, has provided IT support services for the much-loved Big Burns Supper Festival which takes place in the town each year and attracts thousands of visitors.
To further strengthen its relationship within the business sector, the company has become a member of the Dumfries and Galloway Chamber of Commerce and is sponsoring the after-show entertainment at the DGBusiness Awards, which has been rescheduled for later this year.
Activ Techology, which employs over 30 people, is a managed service provider for IT and telecommunications, with offices in Newcastle and Dumfries.
Dean Cowens, sales manager at Activ Technology, said: “We have had another tremendous start to the year and we want to reinvest this back into the local communities. We have been made very welcome since opening the office in November 2018 and it is important to us that we repay this by playing a role in the community, providing customers with an exceptional service and, where we can, by creating high quality jobs.
“I am growing my sales team and with this comes the desire to really develop our presence and develop strong business and community networks not just in Dumfries but across the Carlisle-Glasgow corridor, where our recently appointed business development manager, Carol Logan, is making a real impact.
“We are looking forward to supporting the DGBusiness Awards later this year, a ceremony that recognises the best in Scottish business and we will also donate promethean interactive boards which will be on display throughout the night.”
Lee Medd, host of the 2020 DGBusiness Awards, said: “We are so excited to be working with Activ Technology, it has really been making a name for itself since opening an office in Dumfries and with their expertise in IT can help businesses and organisations that may need to be away from their usual place of work for some time. Any businesses that need IT support during this time should give Activ Technology a call and see how they can assist.”
