History_MasterlinkRobyn Taylor & Steve Grainger – February 5th, 1993


Michael Jenkins & Trish Nicholls – February 5th, 2015

Over 20 years ago Steve Grainger founded the company in premises on the corner of Bideford and Freshwater Streets. Back then Masterlink only sold gaming software; however it soon became apparent, that to successfully sell software, you also needed to provide appropriate hardware. At that time, computers were in their infancy and our customers soon sought technical advice and assistance. Once Masterlink’s first full time technician was employed the company had achieved its own momentum, growing in leaps and bounds from year to year.

It soon became apparent that more space was needed, so after just 12 short months new premises were purchased and the store relocated to it’s present location at shop 5, 486 The Esplanade. Extra services and products were soon added in response to the ever increasing tourism market and population of Hervey Bay. An internet cafe, equipment hire such as a data projector and onsite technical support for residential and business customers to name but a few.

Often we don’t realise how quickly things change! It’s shocking to consider that on special in 1995 a 286-16 computer with a star printer would cost you $2499. To look at Masterlink Computers today with its bright modern interior, highly qualified staff and full range of products and services. You would understand our amazement as we thumbed through our album.

But changed as it has, Masterlink has a long way to go yet. We are introducing a raft of innovative ideas, products and services – while keeping true to our mission statement. “To provide good old fashioned service – with a smile!”.
