The Agfa-Gevaert Group is set to acquire Inca Digital Printers, subject to meeting and obtaining customary conditions and approvals. The acquisition strengthens Agfa’s position in high-speed digital printing and brings an additional focus on packaging printing markets.
The acquisition encompasses the portfolio of existing high-speed multi-pass printers, including a strong service organization; a newly designed line of single pass printers for several packaging applications as well as a joint development of a customized in-line Print Engine in collaboration with leading corrugator manufacturer BHS Corrugated.
“The Inca acquisition is a major step in Agfa’s transformation. Digital printing is a profitable growth engine for the group with a tremendous potential that will be further accelerated by the addition of Inca,” said Pascal Juéry, President and CEO of the Agfa-Gevaert Group.
Inca Digital Printers is a Cambridge UK-based leading developer and manufacturer of advanced high-speed printing and production technologies for sign and display applications as well as for the rapidly growing digital printing market for packaging.
