Global Inkjet Systems (GIS), a leading developer of software drivers and electronics for industrial inkjet printheads, today announced a major phase in the company’s expansion. GIS has moved to new 5,000 sq.ft. head offices in The Jeffreys Building, Cambridge, which will facilitate further growth for the company. It has also opened a new technical support office in Shanghai.
Global expansion for Global Inkjet Systems Ltd
Founded in 2006, by CEO - Nick Geddes, GIS has grown rapidly to over 20 employees and now comprises a strong team of software, firmware and electrical engineers dedicated to developing and delivering innovative products and strong technical support to inkjet OEMs and system builders, who incorporate GIS software and electronics in their inkjet printers.
The extra space in the new head office will allow the company to expand its engineering team and also provide a larger R&D area, equipped with print rigs for every printhead type that the company supports (Dimatix, Konica Minolta, Kyocera, Ricoh, TTEC and Xaar). “With the printhead manufacturers introducing new heads every year now, the lab will make a huge difference to our testing capability and accelerate our development of new head personality boards and our next generation, high speed Print Manager Board” said Nick Geddes.
GIS has also increased and diversified its global presence with a new technical support office for the Asia Pacific region, based in Shanghai. The investment marks GIS’s growing customer base in the region and the need for locally based technical support. The new office opening coincided with GIS exhibiting at the APPP Show in Shanghai 11-14 July.
Founded in 2006, GIS has rapidly expanded to become a leading developer of fully integrated printhead operating systems. GIS Print Manager Boards, Head Personality Boards, Printer Drivers and User Interface Software with the GIS Variable Data RIP are designed to work reliably in rugged industrial settings and are currently being used in key industrial printing applications such as ceramic tiles, labels, textiles, plastic cards, wide format graphics and materials deposition.
