As 2020 comes to a close, so does Trench Networks 5th year.
Coming off the back of an exciting year in 2019 we were full of enthusiasm, had just completed a round of funding and were excited for the year ahead. Little did we know what 2020 held for us all…
A growth year
In spite of all the challenges that this year has thrown at us we have been very fortunate to have achieved significant growth. We run a tight but very, capable ship and each and every member of the team has got stuck in, going above and beyond in order to carry out this growth.
“I don’t think the company would have made it through COVID as well as it did without the support from Trench. We wouldn’t have been able to runs Teams on the kit that we were putting out on sites before.” IT Manager, Top100 Contractor.
Extraordinary demand has been placed on our service with sites turning to Teams, Zoom, online meetings and video calls now more than ever and we’ve played a vital role in enabling site teams to stay connected and keep essential projects moving. Our team have worked hard to deliver an outstanding service at a time when our Internet solution on site has been more in demand than ever and time and time again, our clients new and current, have praised our teams efforts. We have covered thousands of miles installing on sites in every corner of the UK from Lossiemouth in Scotland right down to Plymouth.
“We implemented Trench’s Outpost router which improved the performance & reliability immediately, Trench’s Outpost solution will be at the heart of connectivity at each and every site office.” Hassan Bahrani – Senior Network Infrastructure and Mobile Services Manager, Thirteen Group.
Aside from our team, our clients are crucially important to Trench and we are lucky to have amassed a valued client base. Without the support of our clients and our incredible team, our growth this year would not have been possible. We are proud to be trusted by some of the largest construction companies in the UK and continue to establish ourselves as the go to for site Internet as words spreads about #thetrenchdifference.
“Their staff have been incredible to work with, and have fast become an extension to our own IT Team at the site network edge.” Mike Hammill – IT Technical Manager, Bowmer + Kirkland
