Small independent business specialising in all things IT


Kernel IT Services is a relatively new company, having only been founded in April 2020 by former freelance web developer George Hodges.

George first grew an interest in web design after he took over development duties of his father’s motorcycle shop’s website – gvbikes.co.uk.

The website had been built a number of years before and was quickly looking dated compared to competitors.

He decided to rebuild the site from the ground up, focusing on making it simpler to navigate and additonally ensuring it functioned suitably on smartphones and tablets.

Since then, the site has continued to be developed, with it’s most recent incarnation launching in Summer 2019.

A keen motorcyclist himself, George took what he had learned from the GV Bikes website and redeveloped his motorcycle clubs website – nhca.co.uk – and later Grahams Motorcycles, another local business.

George continued to build his skills over the years, eventually joining a company in 2016, where he was the office IT Assistant and a developer.

Whilst working and developing websites at this company, George continued to develop websites as a hobby, branching out into different areas including Ecommerce and Photography sites.

In additon to websites, he was regularly providing IT Support to his local community and later, further affield.

It was in 2020 he realised there was a gap in the market for a down to earth IT services and support company. Frustrated with dealing with the larger web companies and with encouragement from his family, he founded Kernel IT Services.
