Our History

Richard Pederick started Forerunner Computer Systems in 1997 together with his father, Tony Pederick. The business was first operated out of the family home.

Over the next few years, the business expanded employing additional staff. In 2004, Forerunner needed to move to professional premises at 46 North East Road Walkerville, where the business still operates today.

In 2005, Richard’s sister, Petrea Stacey, decided to join the family business which soon led to an expansion of services, including web design and development, and computer training.

Our Office

When moving to our new offices on North East Road in 2004, we renovated the building, pulling down, moving and putting up walls. There was also an abundance of painting.

In 2013, we underwent further major renovations, expanding the main office workshop, changing office shapes and incorporating more work space for increasing staff numbers. A formal reception area was also built.

The latest office renovations have given us flexibility for further expansion in the future.
