who we are

Trans Business Machines Ltd (TBM) is a fully owned Kenyan Company established in 1991 with an objective of Marketing, Sales and Services Information and Communication Technology (ICT) products to small, medium and large corporate clients in Kenya and surrounding countries.



TBM has been a dedicated IBM business partner for close to 20 years, and has adapted its products and services offered to suit the market. The early 90's saw us distribute IBM Typewriters and Micro-computers sold with MS-DOS and MS Windows 3.11. We offered these products with services to our customers, and ensured the technology supported their business objectives. Today, our offering includes high-end servers (System P), storage area networks (DS8000) and systems management (Tivoli) for data centres and disaster recovery sites. We have always believed that Technology, however advanced, will not benefit any organisation if implemented poorly or sold without proper service & support. Together with the innovation that IBM has continuously developed within its products, we have challenged ourselves to invest in our competencies, so as to grow our offerings to the local market. Currently, with a broad range of hardware, software and services, we are a Premier Business Partner: Currently we have expanded our offerings and services across different Multinational vendors to satisfy a wide range of customer requirements.
