Wirral-based Evoke Creative, a design-led manufacturer of interactive digital solutions, has received a £6m investment from BGF to support further growth in the UK and overseas.

Evoke supplies interactive digital solutions, including self-service kiosks, video walls, digital signage and payment terminals for blue-chip customers in the retail and leisure sectors.

Led by co-founders Neil Clark and Dean Ward (pictured), Evoke – which was originally set up as a design agency in 2003 – provides an end-to-end service for customers, with design, software development and product assembly all in-house. Clients include JD Sports, McDonalds, Biblioteca and Google.

With a growing workforce of 75, Evoke moved into 42,000 sq ft, purpose-built offices in Bromborough last year, where there is a workspace, showroom, warehouse, factory and production line on site.

Mark Mills, former CEO of Cardpoint and NXC of Velocity Composites and Mini-Cam has been appointed as Non-Executive Chairman, following an introduction through BGF’s Talent Network, which connects portfolio companies with expertise to help support growth.

Neil Clark, CEO of Evoke, said: “We’re really happy to be partnering with BGF as we continue to scale up and win more contracts in the UK and overseas. We offer something different to other businesses in the market, creating bespoke products for our customers and working with them from initial concept to final implementation and aftercare. This commitment, underpinned by our strong relationships with some of the world’s biggest brands, gives us the edge over our competitors and puts us in great stead, with BGF by our side, to take on new business in the UK and abroad.”

Matt Widdall, investor at BGF, added: “Evoke has demonstrated impressive international growth over the past few years, particularly with changing market requirements, and we’re delighted to be partnering with a fantastic, experienced team to achieve their ambitious growth plans.”

The investment was led for BGF by Matt Widdall and Rhys Davenport.
