Incopro opens Wales office


Incopro has expanded its presence to Caerphilly, Wales as part of a drive to fight against counterfeits in the UK.

The Welsh Government Capital Investment and Employment Aid has provided £500,000 to support the new office, which will create 80 new jobs to aid anti-counterfeiting efforts.

Incopro tracks counterfeit products online using its Talisman technology platform, which collects, aggregates and analyses data about brand infringement, providing tools for targeted enforcement actions.

The company has partnered with BBC Worldwide, fashion house Ted Baker and trademark and brand protection service Corsearch, among others.

Simon Baggs, CEO of Incopro, commented: “We are committed to making the Internet a better place for businesses to prosper.”

“A key element in achieving this is to cut out the sale of unlawful products and content. We are delighted to have secured Welsh government support to further our mission and to deliver jobs and innovation in Wales.”

Welsh economy secretary, Ken Skates, added: “As we conduct more of our everyday lives on-line, it is vital we have the systems to protect us from a new wave of criminals.”

“The services companies like Incopro provide are invaluable, both to the World economy and to the interests of the individual. I am delighted we could support their expansion, and welcome them to Wales, where I hope they will enjoy a successful future.”
