Bean IT is making headlines for the right reasons as the Tamworth Herald charts the rise of our IT support company

Bean IT had a taste of fame last week as they made headlines for all the right reasons! The article outlining the success and growth of Bean I.T. appeared in a recent edition of the Tamworth Herald

As the article shows that for the most part, it hasn’t always been plain sailing for Bean IT founder, Allan Bean. It tells of his struggle after experiencing redundancy during the peak of the credit crunch. Allan became victim to an all too common phenomena; employers thought him too experienced and over qualified for the countless jobs he applied for. Rather than mope about, Allan decided to take matters into his own hands. As a result, the Tamworth based IT support firm Bean IT was born.

Six months down the line Allan decided that Bean IT needed to move up to the next level and subsequently went to seek advice from the Tamworth and Lichfield Chamber of Commerce.

Allan has subsequently enjoyed business advice and the regular meetings and events that the chambers offer. With Allan now having a customer base of over 250, there are now around 170 companies who rely on Bean IT for their IT services. Allan is quick to acknowledge how important the chamber has been in the rapid growth of Bean IT saying “I have found my membership within the chamber to be vitally important.”
