Reintroducing Gate 7 and our innovative industrial decals
You may have noticed that we have recently refreshed our visual style, messaging and our website. These changes mark an exciting stage in our growth journey and celebrate how far we have progressed over the years. Here, Harry Wickham, Managing Director at Gate 7, shares an insight into why we made these improvements and what they indicate for our future.
Better reflect our global presence
Gate 7 was established in 2000 to be a global specialist in the manufacture and supply of innovative industrial decals and printed components. And whilst our goal hasn’t changed, nor has our commitment to delivering the highest quality for our customers, many things have advanced.
Initially Gate 7 supplied a specialist service to the industrial automotive market – something which we believe we achieved. Today we serve a breadth of sectors and whilst that still includes automotive, we have grown our expertise and reputation within the agriculture, construction, industrial and rental markets. In fact, over the years, we are proud to have worked with international organisations and industry leaders such as JCB, Volvo, JLG, Sunbelt Rentals, Herc Rentals, Hitachi Construction Machinery (Europe), Kuhn, Komatsu, Yanmar, Bobcat and so many more!
Historically, we have been a little shy when it comes to shouting about our successes. But we’re proud of all that Gate 7 and our team of experts have achieved. We have marked the years since our inception with significant accomplishments including:
- We have twice won the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade (2005 and 2018).
- In 2013 we opened a new custom-built American headquarters in Pennsylvania.
- We designed and developed a unique product range of Superior Engineered Vinyls which offer unrivalled performance whilst remain price competitive.
- In 2017, we expanded our warehouse facilities, opening a second facility in Team Valley, Gateshead.
We believe our brand and website refresh better reflect the business we have grown to become and the global presence of Gate 7 Group.
