Esko and AVT merge

Esko, a developer of integrated hardware and software solutions for the print, packaging and label industries, and AVT Inspection Systems Inc. (AVT), a provider of print inspection, process control and quality assurance solutions, have announced a merger of their businesses.

The integration is designed to deliver simplicity and extended connectivity for both Esko and AVT customers by incorporating automated quality inspection into the connected packaging and labeling value chains.The combined business will see expansion of its sales and technical service teams with enhanced local representation, ensuring customers and OEM partners receive the same level of customer service and technical excellence they have come to expect from both companies.

Mattias Byström, president, packaging and color businesses at Danaher (Pantone, Esko and X-Rite) said “We are on a mission to build trust in packaging for the long term. This means we are focused on continually improving the specification, measurement and communication between parties across the global packaging value chain. By removing the organizational barriers between AVT and Esko, we are expediting this vision”.

Roy Porat, president of AVT added: ‘Above all, this integration will absolutely deliver simplicity. It will be easier for printers to measure, print quality and color, easier for operators to hit the quality and color targets, easier for teams to track and share quality and color data, and easier for business leaders to buy and implement these solutions. Bringing our combined strengths together to deliver a complete solution is an exciting opportunity for our customers and our business.’

Esko and AVT have already released AutoSet, a digital link between Automation Engine, the Esko packaging prepress workflow server, and the AVT 100 per cent print inspection solutions. The link enables Automation Engine to set up AVT inspection systems on conventional and digital presses, as well as on rewinders.

AVT was acquired by Danaher, Esko’s parent company, in 2017, to help digitize the packaging value chain.
