G7th pledges support to anti-trafficking cause
Thursday, 2nd August 2012
There are an estimated 9.1 million men, women and children who are trafficked across borders and within their own country to be exploited. This terrible trade varies from west African children trafficked to harvest the cocoa beans that go into chocolate, to those trafficked into the global sex trade in almost any city you care to mention.
STOP THE TRAFFIK is a global movement of individuals, communities and organisations fighting to prevent human trafficking around the world.
All G7th capo packs will carry the STOP THE TRAFFIK logo and their strap line "People shouldn't be bought and sold". The newest models of the Newport Capo will be the first to reach the market followed by the other models as they become available.
Nick Campling, chairman of G7th, said: "I believe that every one of us has the potential to do something truly world class; to be robbed of that opportunity and sold into slavery is a complete betrayal of human dignity. That it happens all around us, where we live, is an absolute disgrace! I hope our small contribution to the cause will help to bring awareness of the problem to musicians around the world."
Visit to Number 10
Monday, 22nd June 2009
Our glorious chairman Nick Campling attended a reception with Gordon Brown, Prime Minister of the UK at a reception held at 10 Downing St last night. He was hoping to put Gordon straight on a few points, but sadly did not get the opportunity. The visit was in recognition of the recent Queen's Award for Enterprise which G7th were awarded in April.
G7th win Queens Award for Enterprise 2009
Tuesday, 21st April 2009
We are delighted to announce that G7th has won the highest honour available to a UK company, the Queens Award for Enterprise 2009. The Queens Award is regarded as the corporate equivalent of a knighthood.
The award, which was announced by Buckingham Palace on April 21st, the Queen’s birthday, recognises the company’s contribution to International trade.
G7th export 80% of their capos to 30 countries around the world, and have more than doubled their exports in the last 3 years.
“G7th is a small company, but we have a great team around us”, comments MD Noel Sheehan. “We have the best designers and sales team, and are supported by a network of highly professional distributors and retailers. Guitarists around the world have also been hugely supportive, helping us spread the word better than advertising alone ever could. Without doubt this award reflects the superb efforts of everyone involved in the brand. I would like to thank the entire G7th extended family for their contribution. “
