LONDON IDTechEx, a small consultancy which specialises in RFID and printed electronics, has won The Queen’s Award for Outstanding UK Business which recognises companies that have demonstrated growth in overseas earnings.
IDTechEx (Stow-Cum-Quy, Cambridge) was launched in 1999 with a staff of two operating from a barn in a small Cambridgeshire village. The company now boasts global offices operating in the U.K., North America and Australasia advising businesses and governments from blue-chips to start-ups in countries which are acknowledged leaders in their field; from electronics in Asia to global policy in the US and security in the Middle East.
CEO Raghu Das, a 27 year old Cambridge University graduate CEO joined the company in 2000 and has steered its rapid growth and success beyond all expectation.
Das said, “Since its inception IDTechEx has become known globally as the strategic lynchpin of these technologies, which will come to be featured in due course in every home – from printed flexible displays and low cost solar power to advanced consumer service propositions and security on every product bought. With so much happening in RFID and printed electronics we have strived to provide our clients unique value by interpreting global information and trends upon which they base their strategies on. These technologies are creating new billion dollar markets and we take great delight in assessing these opportunities and issues for our clients.”
IDTechEx provides global information in the field of RFID and printed electronics through consultancy, conferences and publications. The company secured the award after nearly trebling export sales in three years.
