The company is a global leader in the development and manufacturing of printing, communication and digital imaging products for homes, SOHO's and enterprises.

Brother Gulf's excellent performance in 2005 comes in line with the ambitious Global Vision 21 unveiled by Brother Group. Global Vision 21 envisions the growth of Brother into a leading global company with annual revenues of $10 billion by 2012 and aims at transforming the company into a world-class manufacturer by developing outstanding proprietary technologies.

Brother Gulf has also stepped up its focus on customer service in a bid to embody the company's corporate motto of "At your side," an integral component of Global Vision 21.

Commenting on the 33 per cent year-on-year growth in 2005, Yoshihisa Tsuji, Managing Director of Brother Gulf, said: "Over the past year, Brother Gulf had sought to target the booming IT peripherals market by delivering a unique range of products which incorporate patented technologies. We had focused attention on building strong customer relations, and it is encouraging to note that these efforts are yielding positive results. Our remarkable growth in 2005 is also a tribute to the sustained efforts by the Brother Group to enhance its R&D capability and thus maintain its excellence in product innovation." "The Middle East is an important market for Brother Group. The explosive growth in corporate activity across the region has opened up significant new business opportunities for Brother Gulf, and we are looking to make the most of it by expanding into new strategic markets and strengthening our distribution arrangements," Tsuji added. Brother Group is emerging as a premier developer of outstanding patented and proprietary core technologies, furthering its corporate vision of becoming a world-class manufacturer of printing, communication and digital imaging products for homes, SOHOs and enterprises, based on the customer-first standpoint.

The renewed focus on IT peripherals has triggered a significant surge in the global revenue of Brother Group, which is also reflected in Brother Gulf's performance for 2005. With PC penetration in emerging markets such as the Middle East growing at an exceptional rate, and thereby fueling a concurrent surge in demand for IT peripherals, Brother Gulf is poised to maintain the growth momentum in the coming years.
