Managing Director, Scott McEwan and co-founder and Chief Executive Keith Anderson, pooled their experience and knowledge to create Boston Networks, a company born at the start of the 21st century, ready to capitalise on the rapid technological advancements in network systems.
“At the time there weren’t many companies focusing on both the cabling and the wireless marketplaces,” says Scott, “and we identified this as a gap in the market we could fill; providing specialist, combined cabling and wireless infrastructure services.” But it wasn’t an easy first few years, admits Scott. “We started off in a very deprived area of Glasgow, called Govan, at the start of a mini-recession. But, by overcoming these negative factors it’s made us resilient enough to navigate our way through the current difficult times.”
In addition to their specialist cabling and wireless services Boston Networks also provide a comprehensive range of integrated security systems; including network video surveillance and access control.
“Our route to market tends to be construction, public sector, health, education and transportation; quite a wide variety of vertical sectors. We’re currently installing a cutting edge cabling and security system for the new South Glasgow Hospital, which will be the largest super hospital in Europe when it is finished.
“We also have a UK-wide maintenance division that looks after all our clients’ installed systems.”
With offices in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Manchester and Gateshead there are plans to open an office further south in the near future. “We’re hoping to grow our southern market along with the continued growth in the North East and North West, which are two areas we are currently targeting.”
So what makes Boston Networks stand out from the crowd?
“As a true turnkey company, we deliver intelligent building services. We can offer the full solution from design, installation, management and maintenance. Also, because we were formed and reared in a recession period we’ve always been pretty lean as a company. So, while the last couple of years have been challenging, we are a hardworking company and we’ve coped better than many of our competitors.
“We’re also very fortunate, in that we have a very low turnover of employees. Our staff is very loyal, and I’d like to think they’re happy at Boston – I’m certainly very proud of the work they’ve achieved. They’ve all been performing excellently and continue to contribute to the growth of the business.”
