History of CSCS
Central Southland Computer Services (CSCS) is owned and operated by Stew & Emma Bryan. They moved to Winton in January of 2004 from the UK with their children Katy and Callum. Archie (their only kiwi) arrived in 2006.
They started the business in August of 2004 from the spare bedroom of their home, working evenings and weekends whilst Stew continued to hold down another job in Invercargill. By January 2006 Stew was working full time from an office at home. In August of that year theytook the plunge & opened up their shop in Winton which served as both an office & retail premises.
In 2016 Emma left the business full time to take up a role as Data Manager for Central Southland College. She still retains an interest in the business and works at the shop as/when her other commitments allow.
In May of 2017 CSCS showed they were here for the long haul when they purchased larger premises. They moved from their rented premises to the newly refurbished workshop further down the main street of Winton. This gave them much needed room for their equipment and also a meeting/demo room for clients.
In July 2017 they hired the wonderful Nirosha DeSilva as part-time admin assistant and to ensure the paperwork is all kept in order.
They cover the whole of Southland, from Invercargill to Te Anau, Riverton to Balfour, even have clients in the lovely Milford Sound!
Stew - Has worked in the computer industry for nearly 30 years and his pet hate is all of the techno-babble that the industry likes to use. He likes to keep the geek-speak to a minimum wherever possible. When he's not watching Top Gear, eating curries & generally making a nuisance of himself at home, he has been known to make brief appearances at the shop and pretend to do some work.
Nirosha - Hails from Sri Lanka and moved to Southland a few years ago with her husband Mahesh. She has 11 years experience in the Banking Sector in Sri Lanka and she and Mahesh have a lovely young girl.
Emma - As well as being a housewife, superstar & mother, incredibly Em manages to squeeze some hours into her busy schedule to do some of the office work from home. She's also been seen in the workshop during the school holidays when Stew can't be bothered to turn up.
