– Tiger Communications

“Protek Systems were chosen as the contractor …becasue they had a clear understanding of the space moves and integration of the existing installation. There was a small amount of electrical and fibre work to be undertaken and we could use Protek to do this rather than involving another contractor. Protek met all the project time scales and the move was seamless”
