Huddersfield based business telephones and IT system specialists Direct Voice and Data are celebrating 30 years in business.
Established in 1984 following the deregulation of the telecoms market, the company started life as “Dial-In Telephones” with a shop in Huddersfield town centre.
Within a year, the company was rapidly expanding, offering complete business system solutions through what was to become a long-standing partnership with Panasonic. This diversification in the business prompted the owners to change the company name to “Dial-In Communications” and relocate to new offices in Leeds in 1986.
Becoming firmly established as a business systems supplier, the company’s partnership with Panasonic grew and in 1987 Dial-In Communications became a limited trading company and again changed its name to “Direct Telecom”.
Further relocations brought the company back to Huddersfield and eventually to its existing head office location in what previously the Skelmanthorpe Liberal Club.
