The acquisition also aims at developing a common R&D roadmap for sustainable solutions for screen printing and imaging applications.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled and inspired to be joining forces with the Ikonics team and their distribution network to accelerate our growth initiatives and continue to drive innovation and value to the markets we serve together,” says Wayne LaBrie, general manager, SAATI Americas Corp.

“Combining the strengths of SAATI and IKONICS will clearly benefit our distributors and customers,” adds Ken Hegman, COO, IKONICS. “Integrating operations will widen our range of products and increase operational efficiencies to improve availability. Blending our technical teams will accelerate innovation to the benefit of printers worldwide. We are excited to offer all of these enhancements with the same loyal service and delivery.”

The transaction was expected to close by Aug. 15.
