Electronics For Imaging Inc. (EFI) announces it has acquired Barcelona-based Inèdit Software S.L., a developer of raster image processors (RIPs) and related software for digital industrial textile printing.
“Digital represents the biggest transformational opportunity we have ever seen in industrial printing,” says EFI CEO and executive chairman Jeff Jacobson. “We are committed to driving innovation and expanding our offerings through all economic cycles as we address our customers’ critical need to digitize and automate their workflows.”
According to EFI, Inèdit will help build on the market leadership of the Reggiani portfolio of digital inkjet printing products for the industrial textile space. “Inèdit’s extensive market coverage will be a key point of emphasis to fully leverage the strategic synergies arising from the combination of the EFI Reggiani and Inèdit businesses,” says EFI Reggiani Senior Vice President and General Manager Adele Genoni. “It is an acquisition that significantly strengthens our presence in key textile markets.” Inèdit’s employees are joining EFI Reggiani but will continue to work from their current offices.
“Becoming part of the EFI Reggiani business empowers us to develop and deliver an even greater level of end-to-end textile integrated workflow solutions and Industry 4.0-driven automation enhancements that will further drive customers’ productivity, printing performance, profitability, and sustainability in textile printing,” says Jose Antonio Caballero, co-founder and sales manager of Inèdit. “Our team is excited to join a company that is a leading innovator in digital textile printing.”
