About Us

We are an innovative web solutions company, based in Prudhoe, Northumberland…

…dedicated to creating and maintaining an effective, eye-catching online presence for our Clients, who span the UK.

Established in 2014, we pride ourselves in delivering a high-end, bespoke website design and development service.

We offer a variety of services from platform, hosting and domain services, copywriting, logo design, social media training, business consultancy and an on-going website support and maintenance service.

We love working closely with our Clients, offering a personal service, to identify their requirements.

Our aim is to turn our Clients’ visions into reality by creating/adapting their websites and ensuring the websites perform well, are striking and engaging but also remain simple to use.  A well-designed website helps promote a business/organisation to maximum effect, in turn, converting website traffic into potential customers.

​We are extremely proud to have been awarded the title of Northern Enterprise Most Trusted Web Development Agency in 2020 & 2021.

Our services

End to End Design and Development

From the moment you engage with Ridgetek you will receive a personal service, focussed on drawing out the needs of your business or organisation and turning them in to a solution that meets both those needs and budget.

Business Consultancy

With experience of working in both a Global Corporate organisation, and setting up and running a small business Ridgetek can provide a Consultancy service to help your IT and online strategy for your business.

Platform selection

Ridgetek specialises in WordPress development with a licenced Divi theme but also supports other platforms.

Website Design & Development

We typically use elegant WordPress template-based solutions which are tailored and branded to meet the business needs.  This is a popular choice and helps to keep costs to a minimum without affecting the quality of the website.

Development is undertaken in a secure development area and this allows your current website (if you have one) to remain active, or a holding page to be in place whilst development is on-going.

Content Strategy

We find that Clients are the best people to provide the content of their website as they know their business better than we do.  We are happy, however, to provide this additional service if required.

Website Hosting

We host on Ridgetek’s dedicated Cloud Server.

On-going support

Support for our Clients doesn’t stop when a website is implemented.
We can tailor an on-going support and maintenance package to ensure that your website stays up to date with the latest software and security, giving you priority for any web development changes and additions you may wish to make.

Website Maintenance

All websites need updating from time to time – you may want (or need) new functionality, existing functionality becomes out of date with the latest platform software or you may just want a refresh of how your site looks. We will manage all of this on your behalf.


If you want to be able to manage your own website, online and social media presence then maybe a training and support engagement may better suit your needs. We can create a package that meets both your needs and your budget.


Optimising your website for SEO is an important aspect to running a website. Unfortunately, it’s not a quick process and you’ve probably got better things to do with your time than try and manage this for yourself so why not engage Ridgetek for a regular SEO maintenance package to ensure you are appearing on the search pages.

Ongoing Support

Supporting our customers doesn’t stop when the website is implemented. We can tailor an ongoing support & maintenance plan to ensure that your website stays up to date with the latest software and security. 


Ridgetek is run by Peter Surridge and Rutva Patel. They are supported by a team including Lucinda Reed from Cornerstone PA Services.

Peter is amazing to work with! I talked him through what I wanted my website to be like and he brought my ideas to life. He’s very approachable, honest, and patient, which is a good job since I’m terrible with anything technical! He explained everything I needed to know without using technical jargon and he taught me how to use my new website, step by step.

The amount of admin I have to do has reduced dramatically because the website is so interactive and really answers people’s questions.

He worked so hard to make sure I was happy, and the final result was even better than the brief I gave him. I know he’s always at the end of the phone or on email if I need support. I can’t recommend him enough.

I would highly recommend Ridgetek for website creation and maintenance, as well as domain hosting services.  Pete Surridge worked closely with our preschool to transform our old and unwieldy website into a fresh-looking and easy-to-maintain offering and took complete ownership to migrate the hosting solution.  Pete’s articulate approach meant that every detail was taken care of.  His response times were exceptional, and not only would he solve any problems that came up, he always strived for perfect, helping us to develop an outstanding website.  We cannot thank Pete enough!

Had the pleasure of being part of Peters WordPress training. It was a very informative course, gave us lots to think about & Peter’s delivery was excellent. Many thanks

Peter is a superstar. He’s knowledgeable, uses non-tech speak (helpful), and just lovely. He delivers one (every) time!!
And he’s dead canny. Totally recommend him.

Nicola Little

Director, Digital Sparkles

Peter is a superstar! He listened to what I needed and got the job done! He’s more than happy to answer questions and help out with anything he can above and beyond what I paid him to do. I’ll definitely be using his services again in the future.
