The PB Tech Story
Once upon a time in... Panmure
It all began in 1993, when our founder Pat opened up a small computer repair business in the Auckland suburb of Panmure. It was during these early years at PB Tech that he first became frustrated with the high prices of the computer components that he needed to carry out his repairs.
His solution to combat these high prices was to call up other local computer businesses and arrange ‘group buys’ from overseas suppliers where he could leverage the bulk quantities ordered to negotiate a better price. Pat couldn't have known it at the time, but that very first bulk buy he arranged sometime in 1995 was the start of a strategy which would help propel PB Tech to become New Zealand’s largest locally owned computing and I.T. supplier.
We spend less, so you save more!
It’s not just PB Tech’s customers that love a bargain, PB Tech loves a bargain too! We’re always looking for innovative ways to keep our running costs low, so we can pass those savings onto our value conscious customers.
You won’t find PB Tech stores in high rent cost locations such as malls and high streets, and unlike many of our competitors, we avoid expensive advertising campaigns as well.
We think our genuine low prices create enough buzz on their own, so why waste all that money on fancy showrooms and advertising when we can use it to keep our prices low?
