Phillips Computer Services (PCS) is a family run business.

Tom Phillips started the business in 1995 after many years experience working with Macintosh computers prior to the internet boom of the late nineties. Over a period of two or three years the business gradually grew until it became a full time job in around 1997. Prior to that Tom had been teaching technology in secondary schools in Lancashire. Besides an interest in the internet Tom enjoys climbing, cycling, caving, running, etc (and has been known to sneak out during office hours when the sun shines).

Barbara Phillips took control of the accounts and other office work shortly after the business started. Previously she had help run the office in the Lancaster University careers department, and became familiar with the internet in the earlier nineties. Gardening, books, shopping and walking are some of her many interests.
