IT Support for schools in Essex and Suffolk

Murray Thorpe

Author and School IT Expert

More than 20 years ago today I walked into a school office placed my tool box on the floor and said “Hi we’re the Cablers and we have come to network your computers in the office” and from that day on the name Cablers stuck with us.

Over the last 20+ years we have grown from our early days of cabling to become one of the leading IT companies for schools in Essex, Suffolk and North & East London Boroughs offering networking, classroom touchscreens, hall AV systems, phone systems and complete IT management solutions.

We support a variety of both primary and secondary schools, Trusts and SEN schools; from ones who historically had a ‘man in a van’ support, right up to large multi-site academies.  Delivering the functional to state-of-the-art computer tech and cabling.  Building IT solutions to suit your schools’ needs.

I believe in Cablers, our level of service, our support technicians and our office staff. We have a hard-working ethos, low staff turn over and a forward thinking team.

Try us out – you won’t be disappointed.

Meet the Team

The Guys in the Office

Murray is our leader, chief, creator and visionary, always coming up with new ideas, plans and adventures, delegating what he can, whilst working hard doing the rest.

His vision for the company is much like his personality, one that is a fun and caring , with a great work ethic and will always take the time for our customers.

In his private life, Murray is a hands-on dad of two, husband and dog daddy. His weekends are taken up supporting his (very) athletic children at their various sport pastimes, and making sure they have every opportunity to succeed.

In the limited free time he then has, Murray is a keen amateur wildlife photographer and golfer.

Peter, is our long suffering Office Manager, he is in charge of all office activities and the Cabling side of the business and has been here since the company began. His plethora of useless/ful facts makes him the best man to have on your quiz team, or just to add randomness to your workday. PS, We think he likes football…

Olga is our Office and Finance Administrator, Olga has a heart of gold and loves a good chat, she processes all of our invoices. The other half (some say better) to Murray, she, like him supports her children in their extra curricular activities, however her super power is – knitting: ask her about her creative mushrooms.

Sue is our Marketing guru…busy mum of twins, Sue loves her ‘break’ at the office, keeping our social media up to date, sending information to our customers,  working on the website and writing articles and blogs under her pen name Sue Panini. She always has time to make sure there is a fresh pot of coffee on the brew in the office.   When Sue isn’t at work she loves camping with the Scouts and reading crime thrillers.
