Zafire, originally known as Datareason was established in 1999 by Jonathan Slim, Zafire’s Technical Director. Subsequently Jonathan expanded the company by making two further acquisitions in 2001 and 2002. In 2007, Chris Beling, Former Technical Director of Menzies Aviation joined the company as Commercial Director. Jonathan and Chris combined their considerable industry knowledge to develop the Aviation branch of the business, with the aim of providing innovative baggage management solutions for airports and airlines around the world. The venture has been very successful and over forty international airlines are now using Zafire software in various locations to manage their baggage reconciliation.
Zafire’s head office is located in Oxfordshire in the United Kingdom, with regional offices in Gatwick and Stoke-on-Trent. While many companies are struggling to survive in these hard economic times, Zafire is expanding its workforce in order to cope with the new business that it has obtained from Aviation and Service Management customers alike.
Zafire is a privately owned company which has made a profit every year since it was established. Zafire’s directors believe that the way forward is to invest the majority of the current profit back into the business and the ongoing development of their staff in order to ensure continued success and stability for the company in the future.
