The history of Gate 7 Group

We are proud to have decades of experience and expertise in custom decal printing and the supply of printed components.


A family business with a global reach

Gate 7 was founded by Keith Wickham in 2000. At that time, our vision was to supply a specialist service to the industrial automotive market – something which we believe we achieved. Over the years we have successfully transferred this knowledge and our expertise in developing printed solutions to the construction, agricultural and industrial markets, sectors in which we now specialise.

In 2008, John Reay – formally a director of Gate 7 Ltd and current Vice Present of Gate 7 (US) – relocated to the US to set up production for Gate 7. In 2013 we opened a new custom-built American headquarters in Greencastle, PA.

With companies in the UK and USA, Keith and his team embarked on a journey that has seen Gate 7 expand its customer base across Europe, USA and Asia to become leading experts in innovative industrial decals and printed components.

We are proud to be a family company with an international presence and customer base. Today Keith is our Chairman, Harry Wickham is our Managing Director and Sophie Kavanagh (née Wickham) is our Commercial Director.

Despite our global growth over the years our family values remain the same: kind, respectful, supportive, nurturing, transparent and reliable. These values, alongside our team who embody them, are a key part of our success.

Our accolades

In 2005 and in 2018, Gate 7 was awarded the Queens Awards for Enterprise (International Trade), which is a significant accolade. Further recognition of our export success has been made locally with business awards on both a regional and national platform.
