Successful first year

G-Smatt Europe opened its doors for business last July and since then the Oxford-based company has flourished, the company has reported.

Its smart glass media solution is generating enquiries from both the events sector as well as opportunities for pop-up retail units, hospitality and construction.

Visitors to this year’s Boomtown Festival saw 13 of the G-Tainers installed to form Bang Hai Technologies, the headquarters of the ‘in world’ Bang Hai Corporation and the hub for the events digital innovations.

Most recently, visitors to London will have been able to witness the interactive and creative capabilities of the glass as one of the G-Tainers was installed behind the Royal Exchange in Threadneedle Street as part of this year’s London Festival of Architecture (LFA), of which G-Smatt was also a lead sponsor.

The company was recently recognised as Thames Valley Newcomer of the Year Inward Investment Award – at the Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce 2018 Business Awards. As a result, the company automatically qualifies for the national business awards, which are presented in the autumn and which recognise excellence in British business.

The company is led by Orhan Ertughrul, who said: “This has been amazing year for G-Smatt and I am delighted with what we have achieved and even more so by the opportunities that lie ahead. A key factor in this success has been the growth and development of the highly committed and professional team that I have been able to assemble.”
