Malcolm Rae Wins Global Achievement Award

Malcolm Rae has been announced the winner of this year’s Global Achievement Award, which recognizes an individual who has made a key contribution to the promotion and growth of the label industry and has been an industry influencer and motivator.

Malcolm Rae founded GEW in March 1991, creating what was to reportedly become the largest supplier of UV curing equipment to the narrow web label industry worldwide.

Over a 35-year career, Rae helped enable the transformation of label printing from primarily water-based to majority UV ink by forging long-lasting preferred supplier relationships with almost every major printing machine provider in the narrow web industry.

Still family owned, GEW employs 150 people worldwide, at three UK manufacturing sites and two satellite offices, with sales, service and distribution serving over 60 countries.

A chartered mechanical engineer, Rae holds 21 international patents covering GEW’s key products, including the E2C, which is installed on 30,000 label print stations globally.

The award will be presented at a gala awards evening on the first day of Labelexpo Europe 2023.
