Managing director Chris Innes commented: “We are really proud to have reached the final for this top industry award and of course are hoping that we will lift the title at the presentation ceremony next month.
“The nomination is made by partner companies within the industry so it is a real honour to be nominated, and great recognition for our superb team of staff.”
The company specialises in tailor-made network installations and support contracts for businesses and schools throughout Shropshire, Cheshire, North and Mid Wales, with recent clients including The Marches School and Newgate Clocks in Oswestry.

“We are delighted to see that they have been nationally recognised and nominated for this award for service levels to their customers and we wish them every success in the final.”
Micro Plus Computers has a staff of over 20 and can call on two decades experience in its sector, also providing computer repairs for home users and installations of wireless networks for businesses and local councils.
