Foundry’s solutions include industry-standard tools used for visual effects, games and design. The company also works closely with innovative companies in the areas of virtual and augmented reality, as well as 3D printing, to push the boundaries of what’s possible with new and exciting technologies. Clients include Pixar, ILM, Double Negative, The Moving Picture Company, Walt Disney Animation, Weta Digital, Framestore, Sony Pictures Imageworks, Brooks Running Company, Super Evil MegaCorp, Naughty Dog, MakerBot and a number of global brands in the areas of design. 

While our reach is global, we’re proud of our roots as a British company.

"Our success and innovation stems from a pool of fantastic talent, combined with support from a variety of British organisations, ranging from publicly funded projects to collaborative research and development. It’s an honour to join this year’s list and to represent the strength and promise of British SME’s" continues Bill. 

As well as identifying 1,000 companies, the publication examines in detail the opportunities and challenges facing SMEs, and looks at the sectors and trends that will shape the future of the UK economy.
