Quartix Announce Record Growth And New Chairman


As a new chairman is appointed, award-winning vehicle tracking supplier Quartix announces record sales growth rates for 2013. With both its fl eet and insurance businesses performing particularly strongly over the last year, sales were up by an unprecedented 60% in 2013, reaching a turnover of just over £13 million.


Quartix installed more than 40,000 tracking systems in the UK in 2013,


and continued to attract businesses with its renowned customer service and comprehensive system. Notable recent customer wins include Shearing Group’s 265-strong fl eet of coaches, Sharp Business Systems UK Plc and traffi c management specialists Amberon Limited, but Quartix has also introduced product developments as a result of its ongoing R&D. These include architecture changes which have optimised user experience, improved Utilisation Suite reports and its new mobile application, which is now available to download on Apple, Windows and Android devices.


With such positive sales news in 2013 and a continuing increase in installation volumes, Quartix has also appointed Avril Palmer-Baunack as Non-Executive Chairman. Avril is a very well-respected fi gure in the fl eet industry, with a wealth of international experience in the insurance, automotive and logistics sectors.


Andy Walters, Managing Director of Quartix, said: “We are delighted


to welcome Avril Palmer-Baunack to the board. She will play an important role in helping to guide the company’s strategy in its growth and international expansion.” Avril is also currently Chairman of both Helphire plc and Molins plc, and a fi nalist in this year’s Sunday Times Non- Executive Director Awards.


Her previous roles include those of Chief Executive Offi cer of Autologic Holdings plc and Universal Salvage plc, and Managing Director of FMG Support Ltd. Earlier positions in her career included management roles at EuropcarUK, Northgate Motor Holdings plc and the Caudwell Group. “I am very pleased to join Quartix and excited by the potential that it has for further development in both the fl eet and insurance sectors,” commented Avril.


The appointment of a new Chairman spells exciting times for Quartix, which has recently launched its vehicle tracking system in the USA and is expecting further growth in the fl eet and insurance sectors in 2014.
