Our Story.

Magma is primarily an IT support company, but also much more for small to medium sized businesses. We recommend innovative products that empower those businesses to make the most from there IT investment. The company started in 2006 as a side project. Today, Magma serves 1000’s of users around Northamptonshire, and is still trying to be different.

In 2006, Mark May started an IT Company called Magma, the idea for the name came from the Austin Powers films and it just seemed to stick! His focus was on challenging existing IT Support companies and offering something different to small and medium businesses that are often neglected.

Magma was created as an alternative to employing an IT manager, and it gave small/medium business owners who lacked IT competencies and resources access to technology that empowered them and helped them to grow.

What some of our clients say

“Magma have been working with Quest Employment for well over 10 years, during that time Magma have stuck to its principals in wanting to be our IT department and have provided us with support services, installations, managed any technical project and make sure we move with the times. Mark is always available to help us with whatever we throw at him and never fails to deliver.”

David Parker, Quest Employment

“When we needed a new system and someone recommended us to Magma, what a life saver they have been. Magma listened to what we needed, came up with different options and then we all agreed the best route forward. Nothing seems too much for Magma, they consistently go the extra mile with whatever we may ask of them and I can’t recommend them highly enough.”

Paul Marlow, Lakelands Hospice

“Bosworth College have over the past 18 months used Magma to help us in providing new and exciting technologies to the students and staff. We have implemented a Bring Your Own policy managed by a Cisco Meraki solution, equipped the students with O365 and a new Virtual Learning platform which has even included recording lessons for students to view later on, and moved the College to a Hosted Exchange solution. The forward thinking approach of Mark and his team means they always seem to have an interesting solution for whatever banana skin we chuck at them.”

Fiona Pocock, Bosworth College
