AUTHOR: Inavate

GPEG, a supplier of standard and custom flat panel displays, has secured ninth place in the Times Tech Track 100.

The Times Tech 100 league table ranks Britain’s fastest-growing private technology, telecoms and digital media companies by their average sales growth over the last three years. South London’s GPEG stood out amongst a list dominated by IT, internet and software companies.

Nick How, CEO of the company, said he was delighted to win the award having kept an eye on the rankings, published yearly by the Times newspaper, for the past few issues.

He added that the company’s growth was largely spurred by sales into OEMs that use the company’s LCD and touch technologies for gaming systems in pubs and betting shops.

Another area of growth for the company is its patented touch technology that allows capacitive touch to be embedded into almost any surface. Applications include touch enabled waterproof screens, currently employed in the hotel industry, amongst others. However, the touch technology can be included in wide range of materials allowing for touch activated taps for sinks and baths as well as lighting, heating and audio controls incorporated into walls.

Micro Nav, a supplier of air traffic control (ATC) simulation and training solutions, also featured at 55, boasting annual sales growth of 50.39 per cent.

Telecommunications companies had a healthy presence in the list, with some pinpointing a growth in audio conferencing as a sales driver. Finally Meeting Zone, audio and web conferencing provider, entered the list at 99 claiming sales had been buoyed by a forced cut in travel budgets during the recession.
