E.M.A Computer Solutions (2018) Limited was established in 1995 by the 2 directors, Alan Hargreaves with over 50 years of aftersales experience & Eric Hargreaves with over 40 years of experience as a computer programmer/analyst.
The original DOS program was developed and tested at CD Bramalls in Wakefield where Alan was Aftersales Director and having received a confirmed order for 20 installations from the Lancaster/Polar motor group, Alan left Bramalls in 1996 to start and develop the windows version, and then working with other industry experts to develop the program further.
