expected to grow substantially over the next 3-5 years.
A pioneering designer and developer of ultra-violet (UV) curing solutions
for emerging technologies, ITL enjoys a significant share of the market.
Founded in 2000, the company designs and assembles a range of highly
compact, ultra lightweight, modular UV systems configured for a variety
of inkjet and industrial applications at its headquarters on the historic
former air base at Upper Heyford, near Oxford.
ITL's UK operation is complemented by its regional offices in the USA

whilst access to the Japanese market is provided through a distribution
relationship with a major local supplier.
Intense commitment to R&D has positioned the ITL brand globally as a
byword in innovation and quality.
ITL is a dominant and fast growing developer in an expanding market with
even brighter prospects to come.
"We have further products in development offering us fresh opportunities
for business growth in new markets and applications," says Adrian
"Our expertise in developing more powerful, smaller UV curing systems
brings potential for ITL in other industries utilising UV curing
applications such as automotive, medical devices and electronics."
