Having been first established as Genesis Laboratory Ltd in 1997 by Ken Sethi and Howard Lee, Genesis has grown from its roots as a conventional laboratory to offer comprehensive in-house printing, mounting and framing services, and the many changes and developments that have taken place over the last 19 years – the company name, logo, location,services and staff (not to mention, numerous style changes) – have contributed to the Genesis you see today.
As we look back at a small selection of images from the last 19 years (no laughing!), we would like to take the opportunity to thank clients, staff and suppliers who have helped us along the way…
