Congratulations to our client Global Inkjet Systems (GIS) who celebrate their second Queen’s Award for Enterprise, recognising outstanding achievements by UK companies in International Trade, Innovation and Sustainable Development.
GIS is the leading global technology provider of software and hardware components to OEMs, system builders and integrators for the industrial inkjet industry. The company was co-founded in 2006 by Nick Geddes and Jim Brotton. An independent, privately owned business with headquarters in Cambridge, UK, the company has grown consistently over the past decade and now has a strong team of over 60 employees. In 2017 GIS moved to new headquarters in Cambridge to facilitate further growth. Key regional customer technical support is also provided in China and Japan.
Eighty-one percent of the company’s total sales in 2016/2017 were in international markets in Europe, Asia and the USA – sustaining continued growth and commercial performance. GIS’ overseas earnings more than doubled in the period 2015 to 2017, and the company now exports to more than 20 countries worldwide.
This second Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade recognises GIS’ outstanding growth and diversity in overseas markets, and is testament to the company’s skilled and dedicated staff, who are committed to develop, deliver and support continued product innovation.
Bailey Fisher is pleased to have supported the growth of the business, with the appointment of Head of Customer Experience.❰ Back
