Rochester and Associates Ltd, have been trading since January 1998 and, in the intervening time, have seen all sorts of technological changes, viruses, problems and solutions.
We offer a full support service designed so you can get on with doing your job and making money, without the usual hassles associated with IT.
We (Rochester & Associates Ltd) are a small I.T. company based in the sunny climes of Leeds, catering for the SME (Small and Medium Enterprises) market in all forms of technology.
The company exists simply to “make things work” and “get it done” – meaning simply by calling us and letting us know what you want, can make it happen.
We have been trading for over 15 years - very unusual for a small company in this arena!
We pride ourselves on our service and support, and regularly exceed our clients expectations.
If you are looking for an I.T. support company who care about your business and will act as part of your team, call us:
Simon is a geek, but not your usual geek!
Simon has a strong passion for technology and the role he performs, and gets a real buzz from helping businesses.
An avid collector of puzzles and a strong analytical mind means he will often find a solution to problems before they become painful (often before the clients realise there is a problem!)
Tor has worked with such clients as Helly Hanson, Adidas and Toys R Us, and was part of a team shipping products all over the world.
Tor is friendly and jovial and truly enjoys running the company.
Tor’s background and experience allows her to understand client’s requirements and then deliver solutions on time and to budget, with the minimum of fuss.
Rochester & Associates Ltd was originally started by Simon Rochester in January 1998.
Born from a combination of Simon’s desire to run his own company with a passion for technology, and Tor Mackenzie’s skills and management, the company quickly established itself as a prominent provider of quality IT solutions that actually work.
Having started life servicing ICI and the various companies that come under that banner – Rochester & Associates Ltd relocated to the city of London, after the potential of a large contract.
This developed into initially servicing Citibank as it’s main client, through which our reputation quickly grew, and we began undertaking projects for the BBC, The Land Registry, The Met Police, Compaq and other major ‘Blue chip’ clients.
After a few years we once again decided to come home to Yorkshire, having become disillusioned with London, and relocated to Leeds, where we have now been for over 10 years.
Currently we are based on the Leeds / Bradford border and help many companies in many business sectors, though we specialise in the manufacturing industries.
Offering a range of services to our clients we consistently outperform our competitors and win most of new business through recommendation and referral. What we once offered only to the ‘big boys’ we now offer to businesses in the SME arena.
Our services are designed to deliver a consolidated solution – that is, if you want it we do it – this is to stop the ‘rock and a hard place’ situation companies find themselves in where one company blames the other and nothing gets done (costing your business all the while).
Our clients like our friendly approach and we rapidly become part of the family – helping you with issues and business development.
Our approach to technology is rare in the IT sector, in that we view the technology from a business perspective. We realise that the technology needs to perform a role and that it needs to have a cost benefit. We do not install technology ‘just for the sake of it’ so you can rest easy that you’ve got the right equipment and not something massively over specced.
We are rapidly growing our marketing share in offering IT services to the manufacturing sector as; once again, we continue our reputation for quality and reliability and gain more testimonials and referrals from very happy clients in this sector.
Rochester & Associates are constantly developing new solutions as our industry is an incredibly rapid, changing environment. We truly believe that the companies that harness technology as a positive benefit to their business are the ones that go further, faster.
We keep our fingers on the proverbial pulse of the technical world so we can deliver the best technology to enhance your business, so you don’t have to.
