Richard, Andrew and Jon will continue to lead our combined team and extend a warm welcome to Mike and Barbara Blakeman, the driving forces behind BlakeLAN. Also joining our team is Sarah McEwan, Jack Blakeman and James Wooliscroft, continuing in technical support roles. With this merger, we now have a combined team of 30 all working under the Wessex IT banner.

We would like to thank all of our clients and staff for their loyalty and dedication, which has enabled us to continue to be a versatile and ever-evolving technology business partner. As we expand our family, we will continue to focus on the right technology solutions for each business, deliver the best service we can, and create an inclusive and innovative working environment for all.

Mike Blakeman had the following to say about the merger:

“IT has been a life-long passion for me since starting BlakeLAN Communications Ltd in 1990. I’ve loved the last 34 years and working with such a supportive and loyal group of customers. Merging with Wessex IT was the best thing for our team and our customers, and I’m pleased to share that the merger has now become a reality.”

BlakeLAN customers can rest assured knowing that they are receiving complete continuity of service, as they will be supported exactly as they are used to – by the same people, in the same way, with the same level of customer service. BlakeLAN customers can still call their direct phone number on 01273 564092, or Wessex IT on 01403 292930.
