Global Inkjet Systems (GIS), a leading developer of software drivers and electronics for industrial inkjet printheads, has announced a major phase in its expansion. The company has moved to new 5,000 sq.ft. head offices in Cambridge, which will facilitate further growth for the company, and has opened a new technical support office in Shanghai.
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).
Nick Geddes comments, “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.”
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.
