From Rotork to Toshiba, the past 12 years have been quite a journey…
Boson was established by co-founders Richard Anderson and Allan Bosley in 2003. Since then the company has grown in size, scope and ambition and now provides web development services to clients in manufacturing, engineering, tourism, retail, marketing, and the public sector.
Richard Anderson, our Managing Director, has built a team that consists of experienced software engineers, application developers, testers and a group of creative information architects – all fuelled by plenty of caffeine.
Founded by Allan Bosley and Richard Anderson (The Bos and Son in Boson) we launch the business from a small office in Trowbridge, Wiltshire.2003
