Computer Troubleshooters Cairns, CT Cairns for short, was launched in May 2011, with Greg Freshwater and Irene Schardijn as owners.

Greg, a true blue Queenslander, has worked in the field of Electronics Engineering since 1982. His experience spreads over many different IT related Research and Development projects. After all these years working for Multinationals and Government, Greg decided it was time to settle somewhere and start for himself. He is the main technical person behind CT Cairns.

Irene has a background in administration and teaching and is responsible for the Accounts and customer support of CT Cairns. Being Brazilian (and Dutch, and Australian :-), she has always missed the tropics. Cairns feels a lot like home to her.

We are here to stay and we hope the lovely people of Cairns will embrace us and experience the quality and friendliness of our service, like we have embraced this beautiful town, we now call home.

CT Cairns provide a comprehensive range of computer and technology solutions to small - medium business owners and private home users. Whether you are looking for help with technology issues, problem prevention, virus and spyware remediation or website development, we can help. We even offer the worlds only "No-Downtime-Guarantee" on our top managed services plan.

Although we are fully trained at pinpointing and solving a broad range of computer and technology problems, our passion is in a proactive approach, in helping businesses put in place procedures that avoid problems from happening. We like to call ourselves "The IT Department for Small Business", because we realise that small businesses need all the advice and support that larger businesses may get from their IT department, but tailored to a small businesses needs and budget. That's our specialty. We focus on providing technology solutions to small businesses that have up to 50 employees.

We recognise that small businesses drive the worlds economy today. Our corporate background allows us to adopt, adapt and apply the lessons learned in big business to small businesses.

Please check out our Business and Home Services menus on top, for an idea of the vast list of services we offer.

For a lot more info about us check out our Q & A page, that´s "Worried?" under the Home menu.

Our link with Cairns goes back to the late 50's and 60's when Greg's dad use to come regularly for the cane cutting season. Check out these old pix from Greg's Mum in Kuranda in 61, maybe you recognize some of the old buildings!
