Bobst takes control of Mouvent in its digital journey

BOBST announces the acquisition of the remaining 49.9% in Mouvent AG to strengthen the development of its printing portfolio.

With this acquisition BOBST is poised to further accelerate its leadership in printing and converting. New digital inkjet platforms and new water-based inks will soon be announced, answering the sustainability requirements and shaping the future of the packaging world.

BOBST acquired 50.1% of RADEX in June 2017 to develop Mouvent AG, a start-up company focusing on digital inkjet printing. The intent was to explore and deliver the next innovations to transform packaging production. The work accomplished over the last three years has been very fruitful and positive.

Mouvent’s innovative cluster technology has been deployed in the Mouvent LB-701, LB-702 and the BOBST MASTER DM5 presses. Despite the Covid-19 situation, more than 20 presses have been sold in Europe and the USA during 2020.

Also, joining forces with SEI Laser, Bobst reinforces its increasing focus on digital printing and finishing portfolio. The new activity will develop and commercialize worldwide digital laser cutting solutions for the labels, flexible packaging, folding carton and corrugated board industries.
