HP extends its presence in the sigh shop and quick printing market by acquiring MacDermind ColorSpan.


"This acquisition broadens HP’s presence in the production space where the digitisation of analog prints will happen," said Vyomesh Joshi, executive vice president for Imaging and Printing Group, HP.

"MacDermid ColorSpan is a respected innovator in UV wide-format printing and should achieve tremendous synergies with our complimentary wide-format platforms."

Now that it has acquired ColorSpan, HP plans to provide lower cost platforms and UV technologies to print service providers that are expanding into outdoor applications and more industrial workloads. The deal is also expected to broaden HP’s graphic arts portfolio of digital presses and wide-format printers along with extending the company’s overall digital content creation and publishing platform.

According to Robert J Wenzel, who will lead up the new product line at HP, customers will benefit from the new range of services on offer. "The combination of HP and MacDermid ColorSpan will provide our customers and channel partners with an expanded mix of quality, value and choice that is unmatched in the digital graphics printing industry," he said. "Plus, MacDermid ColorSpan customers will continue to enjoy the same high levels of attention they are used to receiving."
