CUMBERNAULD, Scotland Nallatech, the developer of FPGA systems, which has grown over 50% in the last year celebrated its tenth anniversary with a visit from Jim Wallace, Minister for Enterprise and Life Long Learning, and Jack Perry, CEO of Scottish Enterprise.
Jim Wallace, who is also Deputy First Minister, said, “Nallatech is a tremendous example of a Scottish company competing successfully on a global basis. It is exactly this type of innovation and success that are crucial to a strong and dynamic economy, and companies like this are proof of what we can achieve. I am delighted that the Executive has been able to play a role in Nallatech's success story, through our RSA, SMART & SPURplus grant support schemes. Scotland can be proud of their achievement, and hope that other Scottish firms follow their lead.”
Allan Cantle, President and CEO of Nallatech said “We successfully grew by 50% in the difficult year of 2002-3, our technologies are being applied by an established base of internationally recognised leaders in telecommunications, defence and imaging, and we are in a position to build on this position as we open offices in key technology locations such as San Jose, staffed by experienced professionals in these markets.”
Perry added, “In my opinion, one of the best ways to increase competitiveness, achieve faster growth in revenues and profit and improve a company's supply chain, is to engage in new international markets.”
Nallatech provides a high-speed architecture, combined with support for industry standard PCI, cPCI, PC/104 and VME, along with software support for popular operating systems and programming languages.
