The “Ultra” company celebrated twenty years of its existence. At the two decades jubilee and celebration of the very successful business story in the restaurant “Vodenica” in Skopje, there were many guests from the political, economical and cultural life of this country. The owner of “Ultra” is Mr. Antoni Peshev, who is at the same time the president of the Assembly of the Chamber of commerce of Macedonia. –“ Ultra” was born as an idea of four just graduated students of the Electro-Technical Faculty in Skopje. In 1988 we decided to start business on projects for production of software for the needs of the “Stopanska Banka”, based on the use of the newest technology at that time- personal computers. To have a personal computer in the year of 1988 was a sign of prestige, technological innovation and to be at the very top in use of the technology. Today we call it “Cutting edge technology”. Twenty years later there is probably no family in the world without a possibility of using the services of the personal computers. But, we have sensed that, there was some strange flavor in the air then. It smelt like changes, new times, new players in the world of computers, by that time completely reserved for the big companies – Mr. Antoni Peshev recalls how it was at the beginning.
This year, just at the time of the jubilee, ULTRA – computers is a winner of the first prize at the competition for software organized by the MASIT IKT 2010. The prize is the software solution: “One-stop-shop system for permits for import, export and transit of the goods and the tariff systems”. The project is financed by USAID, and coordinated by the Customs administration of the Republic of Macedonia. In the last two decades, in addition to this award, “Ultra” was the winner of many other awards of the local and the international importance. With over 70 power installations, with over 20 san sites and over 50 terabytes of physical capacity, as well as installation of the impressive 84-processor system, ULTRA is a proven technological partner for the most complicated informatics installations in the state – in T-mobile, Chamber of Commerce, Ministry of finance, Ministry of the interior affairs, the Public revenue office, Customs, Ministry of education and others.
