Integrated packaging company Pro Mach has acquired the US-based inline printing and coding solutions manufacturer Greydon for an undisclosed sum.
The acquisition, which will complement Pro Mach’s existing capabilities in flexible packaging, would enable the company expand its labelling and coding product offering.
According to Pro Mach, through its product integration with Greydon, the company will serve customers in shared end user markets such as medical device, pharmaceuticals, nutrition, food, meat and dairy.
Pro Mach president and CEO Mark Anderson said: "Greydon strengthens our ability to be one of the most comprehensive labelling and coding solution providers in the packaging industry.
"They add value to our flexible packaging solutions and provide opportunities to further develop our integrated system product offering."
Pro Mach’s labelling and coding group includes brands such as LSI and ID Technology, which supplies printer/applicators in North America.
The new Genesis digital ink printing solution of Greydon uses UV ink and produces output on most materials, including paper, Tyvek and flexible webs.
Genesis prints complete graphics and variable coding information and also delivers ideal performance and return on investment for medical device as well as pharmaceutical manufacturers.
Pro Mach labelling and coding group president Alan Shipman said: "Together, we have outstanding opportunities to expand our solutions in key markets and develop new products that complement our extensive ID technology product line, as well other key product lines across Pro Mach."
