Company History

Supporting businesses with technology since 2005.

Over the past 15 years Net Primates have built and implemented systems that have helped our customers’ businesses grow. Starting out providing IT Systems, Support, and Connectivity solutions to businesses, we have built on that foundation to incorporate Cloud & Cyber Security services providing a single point of contact for all information technology requirements.

Our customers trust us to take control of their IT and Telecoms infrastructure so they can get on with running their business.

We work as a trusted business partner rather than just an external solutions provider, providing IT expertise for companies too small to have their own.
