A Tremendous Year, and More to Come

Joe French, CEO, Masstech Innovations

The 2018 NAB show will be the first since Masstech and SGL merged to form Masstech Innovations. That means that it’s a little under a year since the merger. What a year it has been.

Back in May 2017 the task ahead of us was to take two of the biggest names in M&E archive and storage management and to create something new, something that carried with it all the weight of decades of combined experience but that remains agile and flexible, at the forefront of innovation and a true thought leader in the industry.

The process is of course ongoing, but in the last year Masstech has combined all the best facets of its two predecessors, both technical and operational, and enhanced this by adding some of the most experienced and dedicated sales, engineering and back-office staff that I’ve ever worked with.

It would take more time and space than I have here to even begin to describe the huge amount of effort and work that our tremendous teams have put in over this transitional period; the process of merging two companies always presents challenges, and I am immensely proud of the diligence and dedication that Team Masstech has shown in continuing to overcome these.

This is an exciting time for us. The changing marketplace, the advent of new storage technologies, the real-world implementation of the cloud in all its forms, and the increasing role played by machine intelligence in our business and leisure worlds are just some of the influences that are driving our R&D around the world; these will be the solutions that we know will soon be helping our technical and business partners to out-perform themselves year-on-year.

We can’t wait to see where we go next, and we very much hope you’ll join us.
