PCPatch was first established in 2004 under the name of MetratonIT operating as an online shop selling products over the internet, operated from home on a part time basis. In 2005 the decision was made to take the business to a new level with the purchase of the computer shop in Petone. Along with this move a name change was necessary due to the difficulty of pronouncing the original name. And PCPatch was born.
Initially the business involved Husband & Wife team of Neil and Richelle. As time has moved on and word has spread, PCPatch has grown to employing 4 full-time people and 3 or 4 part-time people in 2009.
July 2009 saw PCPatch move from the old shop (in which a computer shop had operated for 20 odd years) to new premises directly across the road in Jackson St. The shop provides much better space and also a much more welcoming environment to shop in
