IDRsolutions was founded in 1999. Our first product was some bespoke software to help News International integrate their publishing and web systems (it actually started life as a coding project for an MSc at Greenwich University). In 2001 we started writing a PDF library in Java (JPedal) which is the basis of all our current products.
We have always been proud to be a small, boot-strapped software Company, based in the UK but with major clients across the world. We are still owned by the founders. We have offices in KingsHill (Kent) and Leicester. We have had some clients for over 15 years.
We are a small and passionate team of developers working from home or the office. Most of us have been here for several years or more. We take our work very seriously and ourselves less so. We always want to be learning and improving and our Friday afternoons are devoted to independent learning.
Our Mission and vision
From 1999 to the present day we have been helping Developers to display documents in their systems and applications.
Why are we called IDRsolutions?
Our first product was designed for Intelligent Data Republishing of content at News International. Our founder's daughter also has the initials IDR and signed our first contract with her handprint. Take your pick on which you prefer...
Where you can meet us?
We have a popular blog where we talk about all things related to PDF, Java, HTML5 and events we attend. We are online at linkedIn, Facebook and Twitter. We often attend conferences such as BoS, Devoxx, DevFest, CodeOne and Community events and do talks ranging from the very technical to entertaining and silly.
