Meteor Inkjet’s parent company, Global Graphics PLC (Euronext: GLOG), has appeared in the 2018 London Stock Exchange Group’s 1000 companies to inspire Britain, an annual celebration of some of the fastest-growing and most dynamic small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the UK. Global Graphics is a developer of platforms for digital inkjet printing and type design, supplying technology globally to leading manufacturing brands such as HP, Canon, Ricoh, Mercedes Benz and Siemens. Together with its sister companies, Global Graphics Software and URW Type Foundry, Meteor Inkjet contributed significantly to this accolade.
As well as identifying 1000 companies, the annual report examines in detail the opportunities and challenges facing SMEs and looks at the sectors and trends that will shape the future of the UK economy.
Gary Fry, Global Graphics CEO comments, “Global Graphics feels like an inspirational company to work for due to the amazing talent we employ in Cambridge and around the world. It is gratifying to see that reflected in a report of this stature.”
To build the list the financial technology company DueDil combined key financial performance indicators and sector benchmarks that are available in its online tool. Each company’s average annual turnover growth rate is calculated over a three-year period (based on four sets of accounts, where four sets of accounts are available). The calculations are weighted to favour latest-year growth. Having identified the long list, the eligible companies are then separated into their Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) groupings. Within each SIC sector, the companies are ranked by their individual growth rates, and those that have most outperformed their sector averages are identified.
