The worldwide boom in computer printer sales has been good news for Oxford-based Software 2000, founded in 1989 by John Guy, Dick Hodge and Tony Harris. The company develops printer drivers – the software that enables computers to communicate with printers – and licenses them to leading printer makers, which pay the company a royalty on every printer they sell. Sales have risen 48% a year, from £7m in 1998 to £15.4m in 2000.
