1976: Founder Martin Mekatrig started in the computer industry at Standard Telephones and Cables working on projects including TXE4 and then System X.
Fax machines, teletypes, seems like a lifetime ago
1982: Martin freelanced working alongside small independent companies helping to develop a number of projects and then as a 'technical advisor' for various Governments.
1996: Believing that everyone should be able to afford a 'place on the web', (the same ethos that drives WordPress and Linux). Mekatrig Web Design was formed.
Mekatrig designed and built quality budget websites for small local businesses and entrepreneurs, making websites 'affordable for the little guy'.
2003: With the advent of WordPress and self-build websites Mekatrig moved from design into affordable web development enabling people to self build websites, DIY SEO and minimum cost digital marketing.
