The name Tisco has been synonymous with TV and electronics servicing since 1959 - and today is still regarded as THE technology innova- tion service company, servicing virtually every brand of electronic product sold here.
Most people associate Tisco with TV servic- ing; indeed they support, service and install most brands and support extend warranty insurers for televisions, LCD, plasma, projection theatre systems and Freeview compliant Sommet brand set top boxes.

Tisco NZ managing director Ken Shilling says Tisco’s centralisation has brought a new demand for technicians.
“The company is currently looking to employ more experienced service technicians who meet the ‘Tisco standard’ of technical expertise and service,” he says. Another appointment will be made for a counter/ phone/sales assistant.
