The Keyboard Company - How it all began

Geoff Thomas our founder

In 1989 Geoff Thomas bought a computer for his business. He didn't like the keyboard that came with it but when he asked the installation engineer about an alternative was told: "You just get what comes with the computer. I wouldn't know where to get a keyboard."

This set Geoff on a quest - to find a more compact and stylish keyboard - that left some desk space for his lunchtime gin and tonic.

Eventually, he found a company in Korea who had a smart mini keyboard and a left handed model.

He ordered 50 of each and advertised the surplus in the Telegraph. They sold so well it convinced Geoff that there was a market. The Keyboard Company was born.

It's all about choice. And that is what defines The Keyboard Company. Our main purpose is to offer a wide selection - in an industry that mostly strives for less choice and more standard products.

Equally we give service. Our phone number is displayed on our website. Our phones are answered promptly, by a real person who is knowledgeable about every keyboard and mouse we stock, and who is proud of the products and service that we offer.
