Queen's Award first for Oxford technology firm

Strong international sales borne out of committed research and development (R&D) has resulted in Oxfordshire-based Integration Technology Ltd (ITL) being presented with a 2009 Queens's Award for International Trade.

"We are all very proud at the news," said ITL managing director Adrian Lockwood.

"As a British company, committed to manufacturing in Britain, we have worked tirelessly to bring advanced UV technology to more applications.

"Getting the Queen's Award is a tremendous accolade to the dedicated team behind our consistently strong year on growth."

Ink jet systems allow for printing onto a huge variety of surfaces including glass, plastics, ceramics and metals. Results are increasingly high profile, ranging from printed hoardings on the side of buildings to printed graphics on truck and bus bodies, and ink jet printing is 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 (its largest market with a 65% share of global sales), China and Korea 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 Lockwood.

"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."
