Venom IT’s Story

Venom IT was established by siblings Becki & Steven Powell in a converted garage at their family home in Sale, Manchester back in 2009.

Since that time they have managed to grow their company from these humble beginnings with just the two of them, to one that employs over 20 technicians and engineers. Venom IT now services close to 1000 companies in the UK and abroad, with Becki & Steve just as involved in the company as before. Becki is Venom IT’s Managing Director and Steve is the company’s Technical Director.

During the last decade since the company was founded, Venom IT has managed to stay true to its roots. As demand for Venom IT’s specialised services and employee base grew, the company moved to 55 Washway road in Sale, Manchester in 2015 a stone’s throw away from where Becki & Steve grew up. With Venom’s continued growth, staff quickly outgrew that office which prompted  the Directors to purchase the current office, 59 Washway Road (Technology House).

Why The Name Venom?

The Venom name was the brainchild of the two co-founders. They were planning for the future as they knew that cyber security would become more important for businesses as time went on and that cyber crime would also be on the up. Cyber criminals were and are still very dangerous and cause massive devastation much like a bite or sting from a venomous creature; and in order to prevail one must fight fire with fire. Steve & Becki wanted to help big and small businesses alike by having strong measurements in place in order to ‘strike back’ against these ever evolving attacks – from there Venom IT was born.
