Fiery, the digital front end (DFE) and workflow business of Electronics For Imaging (EFI), acquires CADlink Technology Corp., a software company delivering solutions for digital direct-to-garment (DTG) and direct-to-film (DTF) printing; digital cutting and engraving; digital wide-format print; and vehicle wraps.
Based in Ottawa, CADlink is a global company serving markets requiring unique workflows involving different types of production devices. CADlink’s products are recognized leaders in design, RIP and workflow technology, and are sold globally to customers through OEM partners and an extensive network of resellers. CADlink’s products, partners and channels are a natural complement to what the Fiery business delivers for its global commercial, display graphics and industrial printing customer base.
“The synergies between our two companies are tremendous and we look forward to providing customers with more world-class software and support to accelerate their adoption of digital print and imaging,” said Toby Weiss, chief operating officer, EFI Fiery. “This acquisition will directly benefit our customers and it significantly strengthens and expands our presence in growing markets.”
The CADlink software portfolio includes proven, advanced solutions that support the development and growth of e-commerce for custom-manufactured products.
“Becoming part of the EFI Fiery business will extend the geographic reach for our products and enhance our ability to support and drive greater value to customers and partners worldwide,” said CADlink co-founder and CEO Gordon Reynen. “Our team is excited to join the industry leader in DFE, colour management and imaging technologies and combine forces to bring more innovation to market for our customers.”
The CADlink team will be joining EFI Fiery and will continue to work from their current offices.
