The Company

The Company was established in 1975 by Andrew Parkin, Professor of Systems Analysis at De Montfort University (then known as Leicester Polytechnic). Incorporated in 1987, Ethitec acquired its own premises at Millstone Lane, Leicester in 1989, and has subsequently expanded considerably, sustaining profitability and a positive cash flow throughout.

In May 1997, following the retirement of the original owners, the company was acquired by Ethitec Ltd, a company formed to facilitate a Management Buy-Out. Ethitec is now managed by Simon Taylor (Managing Director), Paula Taylor (Finance Director), Anya Zarb (HR Director), and Stuart Zarb (Technical Director).
