How we started, and Why we’re doing this.
Back in 2013, whilst I was a full time Software Engineer, after work, I would often find myself reading tech blogs on the latest tech that’s about to come out, or trying to find start-up companies that already have started manufacturing devices with said latest tech. In my case, I was looking for an Android-based device that would connect to my TV.
Before Android TV was announced in 2014, DroidBOX was already a trusted seller in the UK for Android-powered devices – I took the leap and registered DroidBOX with Companies House on the 27th of June, 2013 from my living room. At the time, DroidBOX was a team of 2 people, and we would pack orders in the living room, then drive the Royal Mail bags to the post office.
Our team quickly grew, and two things happened. First, DroidBOX now had a home…we have found a small office on the outskirts of london, and, the 2nd is that DroidBOX (Or DroiX, as you know it today) became my full time job. Since 2015-2016 we have started looking at ways to broaden our Catalogue and bring devices to the market that otherwise wouldn’t have been accessible in the UK and Europe.
A few years later, DroidBOX was rebranded into DroiX, we realised that we are no longer stocking one type of products, and would need a name to reflect this change in our direction as a company. Shortly after, we moved into a much bigger office in a new and upcoming part of East London.
Just like any other business, COVID-19 took its toll on us, but we are lucky to have such a resiliant and dedicated team that helped DroiX through those times and came back stronger at the end.
We do what we do because we care and because we are passionate about technology! Our goal is to always bring the most cutting-edge technology on the market whilst maintaining the same level of exceptional Customer Service our community has grown to expect of us.
Through the years, we can proudly say we have had a great impact on the Handheld Gaming community, being the first Company based on the UK&EU to stock the GPD WIN 1, the “grandfather” of the Steam Deck, who knows? Perhaps without a GPD WIN 1, 2,3 – there wouldn’t have been a Steam Deck, ROG Ally, or any other gaming handhelds.
