Our
story.

Firm foundations in quality are at the heart of Bistech’s success.

Established in 1988 in response to a changing economy and the deregulation of the UK telecommunications sector, Bistech was created by an entrepreneurial engineer with a passion for customer service.

Founder, Mike Hancock, was truly driven and focussed on delivering elegant technical solutions to customers – technology to support and facilitate their long term business objectives.

Throughout the 1990s the communications marketplace evolved and as new opportunities developed, Bistech began providing essential business networking services with the same Bistech customer service ethos.

Significant investment in core infrastructure put Bistech in a position of strength, offering customers a superior, holistic proposition. This, combined with a flexible, innovative approach to end to end communication services was building an established client base and securing solid growth.

Today, the Bistech Group remains fiercely independent and privately-owned.

As a UK market-leader for the provision of business networks and fixed and mobile voice, data and video communications, Bistech has extensive experience across multiple sectors, working with commercial businesses, health, education and government departments - ideally positioning us as the partner of choice for all aspects of communication technologies.

An impressive timeline of achievement puts Bistech on the map as the industry leader it is today…
