Located just off the M62 in Sandbrook Park, Zen Internet, the UKs largest independent ISP, provides a broad range of network, connectivity and IT services. Zen serves wholesale, channel, corporate and residential customers. Having just completed a major investment in its data network nationally makes Zen a credible alternative to the ‘big four’ IT providers (BT, TalkTalk, Virgin, and Sky), offering businesses access to an IT network and service which is second to none.
Zen was founded by Rochdale native Richard Tang over 20 years ago. Today the company turns over £72 million, has won multiple awards for service including the highly respected ‘Which’ awards and employs over 450 staff.
The motto at Zen is “happy staff, happy customers, happy suppliers”.
Richard Tang could have created his business anywhere, but he chose to stay in Rochdale because of its ‘creative and independent spirit’. This combined with excellent infrastructure, skilled labour, and the stunning surrounding countryside makes Rochdale the ideal place to live and work.
Zen is passionate about working with the local community to develop a skilled future workforce, it runs code clubs in local schools giving children access to expert developers and engineers and offers apprenticeship schemes for those wanting to achieve a career in IT.
