Giving you the edge
4Tech IT Solutions
4Tech IT Solutions was established from the merger of two Port Elizabeth based IT companies in 2005. The two companies combined their skill and passion in order to offer Sales, Service, Support and Networking as a solutions package to Clients.

4Tech prides itself in knowing that we offer the best product, service and support money can buy. We endeavour to go the extra mile to make sure our clients are cost effectively supported and that their IT infrastructure is an effective tool to their business. Our Sales team provide a multitude of options when quoting on products, and if we don't stock it, we will do our best to source what the Client needs, and in record time.

We cover the Eastern Cape and more recently, Kwazulu-Natal, and if need be, beyond those boundaries too. We offer support to Clients as far afield as Johannesburg, Cape Town and East London who have branches or clients in Port Elizabeth or Durban.

As a Solutions and Support Company we pride ourselves in the fact that we are a family here at 4Tech, and our Clients are an extension of our family. So break away from the rest and give 4Tech the opportunity to enhance your IT experience.

As an internal sales consultant I work within 4Tech’s dynamic sales and support teams to achieve customer satisfaction, revenue generation and long term goals in line with the company vision and values. Without the very supportive and close knit 4Tech team, that works as a single unit, I would not be able to achieve my goals.

There is a time for everything under the sun, and with 4Tech we do just that, we work hard, play hard, but when it comes to family, 4Tech supports me all the way.
