Founded in 1993 and 100% New Zealand-owned, PB Tech is one of NZ's largest IT providers with locations throughout the country and more than 800 staff.
We support more than 1,700 education institutions across New Zealand from early childhood education to primary and secondary institutions, to universities. We believe that students should have access to the best technology available to help them learn, create, and develop strong digital skills.
Our education department has been built on the fundamentals of having a large stock holding at the best price for schools. Through our unique global sourcing and local distributor agreements, we can offer over 5000 products at NZ’s best prices, ready to ship to your school.
Most importantly, the PB Education team cares. We love our NZ educators and work hard to connect, collaborate and share with NZ schools. You can stay up to date with us on LinkedIn, and our email is always open for questions, quotes, pricing, or general inquiries.
PB Tech’s dedicated Education team works tirelessly to bring leading technology brands to NZ schools. We also offer a wide range of support services and our online portal, where teachers, educators & principals can simplify the procurement of technology products.
Our specially developed BYOD portal can be customised to suit the specific needs of your institution including (but not limited to) logo, branding and colour scheme, product and category lists, custom pricing levels depending on user account level, payment options and delivery methods.
PB Tech is passionate about giving communities equitable access to technology. Since 2020, we have hosted school holiday STEM camps with training organisation Using Technology Better and our technology partners including Google, Microsoft, and Apple.
These camps are one-day events hosted at schools in the regions where a group of 50 to 60 students are taken through a STEM curriculum.
PB Tech publishes an annual education catalogue to keep busy teachers up to date on the latest technology in the market designed with education use cases in mind.
The 80-page catalogues are distributed to schools across the country and remain current for a year.
At PB Tech, we are committed to making a difference to the Environment and improving our Social Responsibility and Governance.
Our ESG Policy lays out PB’s goals in these areas and provides insights into the measures we have already been taking to move the needle in these areas.
