HAMILTON, NEW ZEALAND – The TIN100 Top Companies to Watch, organised by New Zealand’s Technology Investment Network, are held every year to track the performance of top export-focussed technology companies.
This year the Gallagher team – which includes the Animal Management, Security and Fuel Systems business units – were ranked fifth on the index. The ranking sees Gallagher just behind Datacom, Fisher & Paykel and Xero.
The list, which was announced in Auckland this week, is made up of the top companies with the highest export dollar value growth. Revenues for the top 10 range from $1b to $154m.
Gallagher Deputy CEO and Executive Director Steve Tucker says the company has performed strongly in the last year, with a number of new innovations released and positive customer reaction to those solutions being key reasons underpinning the success.
“Growth has been spread across all business units and geographies, with the growth also resulting in a number of new jobs throughout the globe,” he says. “We’ve invested heavily in fostering a strong internal culture that champions and celebrates innovative thinking at all levels of the business in line with our pioneering roots.
“It’s fantastic to be recognised as a top technology company in New Zealand. It’s great recognition of our global team’s significant efforts to create a company that we can be extremely proud of.”
Gallagher employs 1,000 people globally, with 120 of those employees in Research & Development, and exports to 130 countries.
