Company History

Established in 1965 by Ted Paris as a home appliance and electrical services store, the only constant thing between 1965 and present day has been the building, and now finally that has succumbed to progress with it now being the location of Pak n Save.

As the washing machine market changed Ted took a bold step and started Wairarapa's first computer bureau processing facility. This required a huge investment in computer equipment, equipment that took up a whole room, had hard disk drives the size of fridges and were a lovely brown colour.

The orginal location at Kuripuni, MastertonInitially called Wairarapa Computer Services, we provided a facility for clients to come and process their accounts with our magnificent Datapoint mini-computer. Who would predict computers would get smaller faster and progress to a point where clients would eventually own their own systems? Well, we did. Confronted with the evidence of components getting smaller and faster, and the decline in cost to acquire this equipment, we identified computer services as the technology revolution of the future.

In 1995 Wairarapa Computer Services purchased its local competitor - ComputerLand - and inherited the ComputerLand franchise. However, we quickly learned that operating as a ComputerLand franchise wasn't for us. Most of the corporate business that ComputerLand's franchise model was based on was not in Masterton.

So in 1999 the ComputerLand franchise was dropped and under the new name of Technology Solutions we went it alone. Through continued customer focus, quality sales and support that gamble has paid off.

We are now the largest company of our type in the Wairarapa, employing fourteen staff with the diversity and depth of skill to meet any computer technology requirement, from home and small office workstations through to wide area networks and Internet development.

In early 2005 we relocated to the historic Hessey house in Worksop road, Masterton and then again to our current location of 22 Victoria Street, Masterton.
