Able Technologies Ltd was formed in 1999 as an offshoot of Able Communications when the original company, which had been trading since 1987 was split into a technology company and an IT company. James Duncan, Managing and Technical Director is the driving force behind the technical innovation that the company continues to produce. He has been involved with electronics and software product development for over 30 years and in that time has developed products as diverse as a telex emulation system to a drilling simulator.
