St Ives based coding and marking specialist Linx Printing Technologies has won the award for ‘Overall Growth in Exports’ at the Cambridgeshire Chambers of Commerce Global Business Awards 2018. The honour recognises Linx’s continuing success in international markets.
Maria Wright, logistics leader at Linx, received the award at the ceremony at Downing College, Cambridge from Vic Annells, executive director of Mansion House and Central Criminal Court.
The ‘Overall Growth in Exports’ award recognises companies that have generated significant and sustained increases in their export activity over the last 12 months. It is open to any company in Cambridgeshire that is able to demonstrate how it achieved its growth, any barriers it overcame, and how it plans to sustain the growth over the next 12 months.
Linx was named the winner, ahead of a number of its competitors, as a result of its growing worldwide market share, which underpinned double digit growth in 2017. The company is already a leading player in both the continuous inkjet and laser marking industries, holding a large and expanding share of both markets.
‘I was delighted to award the Chamber Global Award for Overall Growth in Exports to Linx Printing Technologies,’ commented John Bridge OBE DL, chief executive of Cambridgeshire Chambers of Commerce. ‘The award is due to their exceptional performance in significantly increasing exports year by year and their ability to continue to lead amongst their competitors and outperform the market.’
Jose Gomez, managing director of Linx Printing Technologies, commented: ‘It is a real honour to win this award, which is testament to our on-going strategy of expanding Linx around the world. Above all, this is all our employees’ achievement – everyone at Linx has contributed to this award through their hard work and team spirit.’
Established in 1987 in St Ives, Cambridgeshire, Linx Printing Technologies manufactures coding and marking equipment such as continuous inkjet, laser, and thermal printers, which code onto a range of products including boxes, trays, sleeves, and plastic packaging materials.
