About Dimension Data (Thailand) Limited

Dimension Data was founded in 1983 in South Africa with a simple vision: to do great things. Our first decade saw strong domestic growth, which established the company as an industry leader in IT networking. In 1987, we became listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, and in 1994, we became a Cisco Gold Partner, establishing what was to become one of our strongest partnerships. We made a number of acquisitions in the late 90’s, and in 2000, we became listed on the London Stock Exchange. We introduced our profitable growth strategy in 2005, a strategy which is still paying dividends today as we establish ourselves as a services-led organisation.
