1995:

  • JavaScript released by Sun Microsystems
  • SSL introduced
  • PHP publicly released
  • .mp3 file extension announced
  • USB standard released
  • Amazon.com launched
  • Kiandra IT business name registered

1995 saw a lot of firsts in the tech industry, including Kiandra’s first customer.

In late August of this pivotal year, a failed attempt to register the business name “System Solutions” turned into a hasty decision by a young Martin Cooperwaite (fuelled by running late for a University exam) to name the new company after the street he lived on – Kiandra Close – and Kiandra was born.

Last week we celebrated the 20th birthday of Kiandra – a business that we are all incredibly proud of, and the result of a vision held by three high school friends to create a company of the highest technical capability married with exceptional levels of service.

The entire team wishes to thank our clients, partners, and vendors for being a part of the journey with us. We’re motivated by the success of the past, and  excited by the possibilities of the future.

– Cam, Chris, and Marty
