Computing firm born out of man’s redundancy

A FATHER from Weston has turned his life around from redundancy nine years ago to launch a new computing business.
Former Broadoak Mathematics and Computing College pupil Bill Marsh opened the doors to Contos Technology in North Street last week.
The computing firm, which was set up by Mr Marsh with business partner Lawrence Reid, offers a wide-range of services such as PC repairs and antivirus equipment help.
Its launch comes nine years after Mr Marsh, aged 30, was made redundant from Randstad in Bristol, shortly after the birth of his daughter Charlotte.
He said: “It was all a bit of a shock when I was told I was being made redundant especially as I have a young family and Charlotte was about to be born.
“But I quickly realised I could make better of my situation by becoming my own boss and helping other businesses and individuals in my home town.
“My life is much better now and I would probably never have left Randstad if the economic downturn hadn’t happened.”
