Holker IT has shot straight to the top of the class after earning ‘platinum status’ with a global telecommunications giant.
We are delighted to become one of only three organisations in the UK to achieve the highest possible partner level with Japanese firm Allied Telesis!
Three Holker engineers – Sam Pegg, Ash Alom and Paul Jameson – underwent a rigorous five-day training course with Allied Telesis, before completing their final exams with top marks.
Allied Telesis is a network infrastructure/telecommunications company, with headquarters in Japan and a North American base in California. Founded in 1987, it is a global provider of secure Ethernet and IP access solutions and an industry leader in the deployment of IP triple play networks over copper and fibre access infrastructure.
Chris Dyke, Senior Account Manager at Allied Telesis, said: “To have three trained engineers is a real demonstration of commitment from Holker IT and a great effort from all concerned there.
“These exams are no walk in the park, but Holker passed with flying colours to become the first company of its size to reach this standard with us. This new status will create far greater opportunities going forward and we firmly believe that having Holker onboard will prove mutually beneficial.”
Holker IT managing director Matthew Metcalfe said: “To achieve platinum status with a company of the standing of Allied Telesis is a huge feather in our cap and further evidence of our progression.
“We take great care in the selection, training and development of our in-house technicians and great credit to Sam, Ash and Paul for doing so well.”
