It began with a with a picture of a painting and decorating shop…
Growing up I used to love looking at the old black & white photo of TA Billsborough & Sons – Painters & Decorators; a classic shot of a high street shop that had just branched out into selling electricals. Founded by my great great great grandad in 1847, the business was a thriving establishment in the centre of the City, incidentally where GB3 is based today. The life of this growing business was cut short through a compulsory purchase of the premises; the family trade was not something I experienced first-hand, so I would imagine running the electrical side of the business, as painting has never really been my forte! I must have carried that sense of ‘one day I could recreate our family business’ into my career as following a redundancy I asked a defining question. What if now is the time to restart the family legacy.
“Our mission became to scale up and create a technology solutions company that existed just as much for its employees as it does for its customers.”
Just over a year later, with the help of some very good friends, GB3 was created. November 2012 saw a new family business arrive following the acquisition of SCH Systems; an IT Support Company that had excelled in supporting North West organisations. We are so grateful to Simon & Caroline Hall for trusting us to take their business into GB3. Our mission became to scale up and create a technology solutions company that existed just as much for its employees as it does for its customers. We are passionate about creating a great place to work and a stand out company to work with.
