The business is owned and operated by Oliver Ambroz (pictured) who was born and raised on the South Coast where his parents owned and ran several successful restaurants. Today his parents are travelling around Australia in their retirement and Oliver likes to stay in touch and visit other family members in Germany as often as he can.
OJ Computers began in just a small one room store adjacent Oliver’s parents’ restaurant and the family home in Middleton in 1995 later expanding and moving to its own dedicated premises in Victor Harbor in 2002. This allowed more services to be provided and a greater ability to stock and display the latest IT products on the market. The business has continued to adapt to the constant changes taking place not only in IT products but also in customer expectations and needs.
Oliver knows the importance of good business relationships not only with clients but also with sales reps for the major brands to ensure he can continue to deliver the best value deals for customers. He regularly attends trade shows to stay up to date with the latest technological advances in the IT field.
Personally Oliver has experienced some tough times in recent years with his health including cancer followed by a broken leg. August 2015 saw him undergoing his eighth surgery. Although his health issues are now behind him, these trials and the fact that he now has a family of his own has given him a new perspective on life and the world generally. He believes this has given him further drive to assist people and realises more than most that life is just too short to be stressing over computer issues. For this reason he’s motivated more than ever to get client IT issues resolved promptly.
Although continuing to offer sales, service and repairs for the recreational computer user, OJ Computers has recently stepped up its focus on offering quality IT solutions for small offices, home offices and small businesses on the South Coast. This has included a growing client base for managed services – offering proactive IT management including round the clock monitoring of workstations and servers.
As well as Oliver, OJ Computers has a network of quality IT contractors who are engaged to further assist customers. Each has been hand-picked and is a strong supporter of the OJ Computers philosophy of offering quality, honest IT solutions at a reasonable price.
