Summary
  • The size of US computer hardware and software markets makes them a prime target of UK firms wanting to expand, but the size of the market can dampen even the best laid plans. Apricot and Acorn are among the UK microcomputer manufacturers that have failed in the US market, but several other firms have succeeded: Root, a UNIX software house; Pericom, a graphics terminal maker; Synapse, an IBM service firm; and K and H Project Systems, a project management software publisher. A spokesperson for K and H claims US computer users dislike foreign companies (tell it to the Japanese), which requires companies form a true US corporation. Even this does not guarantee immediate success; K and H had to wait a full year to make its first US sale after forming a US company. The strategies K and H and the other three firms used to succeed in the US market are discussed.
