About us

Company Overview

Wavex Technology originates from Soho where we first began our journey as a managed IT services provider in London, in 1998.

At Wavex, we are proud of our constitutional ethos of providing excellence in everything we do. Our staff are employed not only for their knowledge and experience, but also because of their values. It’s important to us that when we interview new candidates, they align with our company culture and have the right credentials. Our approach to each project sets us apart from the rest, because we genuinely care about our clients’ experience, in addition to providing robust IT services.
