In early 2020 Neil Gaskell owner of Function44 Ltd and Graeme Lafferty owner of GL Tech Ltd decided to join forces to form a larger entity, to better serve the needs of our respective clients.
On the 14th May 2020 NGL Technology Ltd was formed.
Our clients are businesses of typically 5-50 IT using employees, and are almost exclusively long term.
Between us we have been serving many of our clients for over 10 years seeing some double or triple in size, some go on to be purchased, some working through to the owners retirement and onwards from there.
Each business we’re involved with reflects the values and personality of it’s staff and we enjoy working along side you on your journey.
