A SUPPLIER of digital visualisation tools has experienced a 40 percent growth in enquiries from the United States in recent months, which will, this year, account for a quarter of its turnover.

Animmersion, based in Middlesbrough, has secured six new clients from across the US providing a variety of its digital visualisation technology solutions to support activities such as industrial product marketing and immersive exhibition experiences.

Among its recently secured contracts is a new relationship with Georgia-based Mueller Water products, which is one of the largest manufacturers of fire hydrants and water and gas valves in the US and Canada.

Owner and managing director Dominic Lusardi said: “We broke into the United States a couple of years ago, but have really gained traction in recent months. It is a buoyant market."
