In 1990...

Brian established Scott Communications. With a background in electricity communications, a niche market in the stunning Taupo district, Brian applied a can-do attitude, knowing there is always a solution.
As a result Scott Communications evolved to specialise in telecommunications and security. Always going the extra mile for customers resulted in additional services and expertise as technology changed the way things were done… Wi-Fi, fibre optics, access solutions, security, CCTV and data networks.
Brian completed work for many major organisations in the Taupo, Turangi and Ruapehu Districts; Contact Energy, Taupo District Council, Ruapehu District Council, Taupo Hospital, Miraka Dairy, Department of Corrections, and most of the schools in the Districts.
After 30 years, Brian decided to sell the business to enjoy an early retirement and spend more time with his family and fishing.
