Global Inkjet Systems Ltd (GIS)
GIS is the leading global technology provider of software and hardware components to OEMs, system builders and integrators for the industrial inkjet industry.

GIS’ tailored software solutions and system components reliably drive thousands of inkjet printheads for industrial printing applications such as product decoration, labels, packaging, textiles, 3D printing, printed electronics and functional coatings.  

Our customers integrate our products into their industrial inkjet printers and use our technology as a scaleable platform for rapid product development – from prototype to production. We offer a suite of core system building tools, including the GIS Atlas® customisable user interface and printhead control software, variable data RIP, drive electronics and ink delivery systems.

We invest heavily in R&D so that we can offer our customers a continuous roadmap of technology development, including next-generation electronics, and innovative software to solve complex application challenges, such as printing onto different shapes – cups, tubs, spheres and industrial components.

GIS 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 we 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 our 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 our skilled and dedicated staff, who are committed to develop, deliver and support continued product innovation.
