Company History

We take great pride in our history and our founding values continue to guide our customer approach.

Company Overview Company History The Videk Team

Videk was established in 1978 by our founder and CEO Derek Proops who recognised a growing need for a specialist cabling supplier as the era of the personal and business computer was emerging. As the market evolved, competing formats and different designs began to create demand for cabling, adaptors and accessories to bridge the many developing standards.

Videk became known as an expert source of knowledge and as a specialist supplier of cables to the rapidly expanding computer industry.


That's the year we made our very first computer cable.


The year we introduced our first surge protected power trailer socket.

"The Videk Bible"

From knocking on doors to selling at computer trade shows and then on to print, Videk extended it's reach across the industry. Our first printed catalogue was produced in 1986 and true to our founding values was weighted heavily towards the sharing of knowledge and information.

As the market continued to grow and the pace at which technology advanced increased we started to produce printed publications with greater frequency. At its peak, the Videk catalogue was being produced at a rate of three editions annually. Such was its distribution that it became known across the industry as "The Videk Bible". A continued bias towards sharing knowledge and information proving to both satisfy as well as stimulate interest in new technologies.

Experienced, Approachable, Knowledgeable.

Our team are all technically trained ensuring that no matter your question, they're able to help.
