About Coltek

MAKING THE TOOLS YOU USE EVERY DAY WORK FOR YOU

Formed in 2010, Coltek was purposed to fill a void in the IT market. When we spoke to business owners about their IT issues, their main concern was the unreliability of their IT company.

Our business insights and knowledge, together with our IT expertise, put us in the unique position of channelling the power of technology to paramount business effect.
