We are world-leading technology outsource partners delivering highly-specialised products focussed on the needs of specific global industries.
We combine hardware, software, haptic and mechanical engineering expertise with detailed industry knowledge – making us the ubiquitous and natural partner for successful businesses in the markets in which we operate.
Our Densitron brand is a specialist in engineering solutions to optimise Human Machine Interaction (HMI), supporting a range of sectors including Broadcast, Medical and Industrial applications. Densitron provides best-in-class control systems, control surfaces and custom displays to enhance interaction with equipment used in these industries.
“We are seeing increasing demand for our specialist technology outsource solutions following the recovery in our end markets. This has led to a strong improvement in trading in 2021, with revenues reaching pre-pandemic levels in the second half of the year. Demand in the first quarter of 2022 has remained strong, with order intake ahead of current year revenues and prior year order book.
As with all technology businesses, supply chain issues have been a challenge and have impacted margins, however we have demonstrated resilience in 2021 through close customer and supplier management and deployment of our cash to enable strategic stock purchases. While we expect these challenges to persist, our financial strength and global supply network positions us well to manage these through 2022. There are no structural reasons why our margins will be compromised in the long-term.
Our strategic positioning, strength of order book and proven operational effectiveness position us well for sustained growth in 2022 and beyond.”
Jon Jayal Chief Executive Officer
