D. Grant Crawley Ltd, now known as virtco®, was founded over 27 years ago, on 10th April 1992. Over the years the business has evolved, changed and transformed from a PC builder, value added reseller, through software mail order, bespoke software development to the digital transformation services company it has become today.
In the beginning we operated from Grant’s parents’ garage, then five years later we moved indoors, and then moved out to rented office space. The way the business has evolved over the years has seen us become more and more virtualised. Servers have moved into the cloud, the office has become redundant and we now operate as a distributed “virtual company” with no permanent office base, hence our name virtco®.
We have a long history of working with Internet technologies, both directly providing Internet services and also utilising the technologies as a tool to help our clients. We created and ran one of the very first online stores, provided a cloud database solution with live on-page digital image capture to clients as early as 1995 and even did some work for the Formula 1 team: Jaguar Racing. We’ve been a Nominet member organisation since 1999, and became a Nominet Accredited Registrar organisation in 2014, giving us the ability to register and manage domain names in the .UK namespace.
Virtco® is a digital transformation services company you can trust to give you the best advice and provide solid, reliable services which will help you to build and grow your business. If you need help with something IT related, then please feel free to contact us and we will do everything we can to help.

one of the fastest thinking people I have met
Grant is one of the fastest thinking people I have met - he can spot something a mile off. I really enjoyed working for Grant and would be keen to work with him again. One of the people you aspire to be as good as.
has no equal
I have worked with Grant on many varied projects. When it comes to IT support and creativity within the ecommerce space he has no equal.
I cannot recommend Grant highly enough.
Having worked with Grant for nearly 20 years I cannot think of one time when he did not provide me with all the tools and knowledge needed to start continue or complete any task we needed. His knowledge on all IT matters either hardware or software is incredible. I cannot recommend Grant highly enough.
