Your trusted web design and development agency

All about us

When Kodal was founded in 2016, we made a decision to focus on what we know best: Development. Since then, we have built up Kodal’s services and team to become a well trusted and highly skilled development agency which can tackle complex projects, specialist software build and large e-commerce websites. Early on, we realised that a ‘one size fits all’ rarely fits anyone, and as a result, Kodal has continued to provide bespoke solutions. Many of our clients come to us needing clear, confident advice on how to improve tech for their business.
