Based in Ferndown, SPC IT was founded by owner Simon Carlo in March 2012. After over 10 years of working in IT support, and building his knowledge and reputation, Simon decided to help other companies build their IT departments so set up SPC IT on his own. This developed into providing support, software and hardware, turning him into an experienced IT Managed Service Provider (MSP).  Simon has come a long way from his start up days in the spare bedroom. SPC IT now has premises in Longham and the company has grown to employ four local talented Support Engineers and his wife Andrea keeps them on track with Finance and Account Management. A real family business.

SPC IT has shown immense growth, with turnover increasing each year.  During the pandemic additional staff were employed to manage the shift in working guidelines, enabling their clients to work seamlessly from home. 

Company Director Simon Carlo comments: “I am thrilled to have reached our 10-year anniversary; I started the company in 2012 at the same time that I married my wife who is also our Finance & Operations Director. I have always worked in the Technology sector, starting as a laptop repair engineer, through to helpdesk technician and then up to IT Manager. I have over 20 years of experience in both IT and customer service. SPC IT was founded on this experience to provide premium IT support while keeping the quality of customer service at the top of our priorities. We have built a fantastic and friendly team who come with a smile and a willingness to work with your business. We look forward to working with new clients and helping them move their businesses’ IT to the next level.” 

This commitment to excellence had led to some incredible business relationships and SPC IT is proud to be still working with their very first two clients.  We have some fantastic clients, each and every one we are proud to support. 

In 2021, SPC IT won Southern Enterprises Most Trusted Business IT Services Provider 2021 – UK, something definitely worth celebrating. 

Simon’s core values have always been based on Integrity and Excellence; he believes the customer should always come first. The company’s values are:

  • We are honest, reliable and trustworthy.
  • We are responsible for our actions, deliver what we promise and we are always truthful.
  • We believe in delivering a prompt and quality service to our clients, value your opinions and accommodate your needs to the best of our ability.
  • We strive for excellence in everything we do, work hard to exceed your expectations, uphold ourselves to higher standards and do our absolute best to meet all of our customer needs.

Simon’s love of computing came when his parents bought him his first computer, the ZX Spectrum when he was 6 and he is always happy to hear from people with the same passion who are looking to start their IT career. 

Looking forward to 2022 and beyond, we are excited to continue our growth as a business by providing professional, trustworthy, value for money IT Support and services to other fantastic Dorset businesses so why not reach out to us at for an informal chat with Simon.
