Meet The Team

Before you meet the team, let’s have a bit of history…

Argenta was established in 2003 by our Founder Jeff Woodhams. Jeff spent 6 years building a business delivering bespoke software solutions and consultancy within supply chain process improvement. In 2009 Chris Woodhams, Jeff’s son, joined and has since transitioned into running the business as the Managing Director.

In 2013 we took on our first employee and moved into our first office and the growth started there with support of the GrowthAccelerator program.

We became a National Instruments Alliance Partner in 2014 and started to expand out from our roots in the Aerospace industry.

Today our fantastic team looks like this….
