Print technology pioneer finalist at 2012 Oxfordshire Business Awards

A pioneering imaging technology developer celebrated Oxfordshire's premier business awards as a finalist in its much-coveted Innovation category.

While a multi-awards winner in previous years, this is the first time that Upper Heyford-based Integration Technology Ltd (ITL) has reached the finals of the Innovation category at the Oxfordshire Business Awards.

From a record 260 entries, a total of 42 companies and individuals made the final three in 14 categories.

Attending the awards ceremony dinner with fellow ITL team members, amongst 500 guests on June 15th at the Four Pillars Hotel, Sandford-on-Thames, ITL managing director Adrian Lockwood was delighted with the company's achievement.

"Oxfordshire today is home to the some of the UK's premier technologists so we are always up against stiff competition at these awards," he said. "We didn't win this time round but dFX Technology put forward an admirable case and our heart-felt congratulations go to them for winning."

ITL won the Staff Care and Training Award at last year's Oxfordshire Business Awards and scored a double victory at 2010's Bicester Business Awards where it scooped ‘Business of the Year' and ‘Business Person of the Year' for Lockwood. The company was also a finalist for the innovation award at this year's Cherwell Valley Business Awards.

Presented by Olympic gold medalist and motivational speaker, Kriss Akabusi, the 18th Oxfordshire Business Awards event was hailed as the most successful yet by its organisers.

"This has been the most competitive year I can remember and the longest judging meeting in the competition's history," said Awards Chairman, Paul Lowe, describing the entries as being of ‘fantastic quality'.

"Some of Oxfordshire's largest and brightest companies are featured along with the small, growing businesses that dominate the business landscape.

"If the businesses we have seen are any reflection of the local economy, then Oxfordshire is in great shape," he added.

ITL - building an image

2012 sees culmination of a major three-phase development programme at ITL's Heyford Park headquarters, centralising all aspects of the company's operations in a newly refurbished 20,000 sq ft facility.

Founded in late 2000, the company made its name by enabling the technology for digital reproduction onto a huge variety of surfaces including glass, plastics, ceramics and metals using high intensity ultra violet (UV) light.

This process opened up increasingly innovatory branding and advertising opportunities on substrates ranging from planes, buses and buildings to TVs and even pharmaceuticals.
ITL's expansion with regional offices in Europe, USA and the Far East has developed a blue chip client base in the industrial inkjet sector including major brand names such as Fujifilm, Agfa and Hewlett-Packard.

Consistent re-investment in research and development pushed the company on and up to the next level: making state-of-the-art semi-conductor based UV LED light engines both for an incoming generation of digital printers and enabling new applications in electronics manufacturing.

Now additionally working with global technology brands such as LG, Samsung and 3M, ITL is playing a key role in the development of new micro electronics assembly processes.
By taking semi-conductor light engines to new heights in the developing digital age, ITL today is fast-becoming a byword in innovation.
