OUR HISTORY

Founded in 1990, as a regional hardware distributor, the company gradually expanded into software engineering and services. As the world emerged from the global financial crisis, Comtrade had transformed itself into an innovative software product business, a services company and a systems integrator, active internationally. Our educational drive, launched in 1996, goes well beyond our three learning institutions. Our recent investments in media and digital communications allow us to now venture beyond computing, into content and knowledge based industries.
