How We Started

Prompt PC started business in 1997 when Andrew Eardley took a hard look at where he was going in the ceramics industry, as his career path was quickly disappearing due to the demise of so many ceramics companies. At the time, Andrew was Works Manager, responsible for all aspects of production for a small technical ceramics company employing over 40 people. He had implemented ISO 9002 and fully understood that IT played a vital role in how successful a business can run.

Having struggled to find an IT provider that understood business and its needs to be cost effective, but fully functional, he developed the skills to provide them himself. Seeing a unique insight into the practical aspects of IT, Andrew decided to form Prompt PC Ltd and since has grown to be one of the largest and longest standing IT support companies in North Staffordshire. Employing all their own staff, this is a family run business with Jean (Andrew’s wife) in charge of all financial systems. Prompt PC strives to nurture you as the customer, as well as its own staff, creating an efficient yet relaxed work environment. Whenever you need assistance, we aspire to give you the best support possible.
