The Hybrid Software Group acquires the entire issued share capital of ColorLogic GmbH, a company with a registered office in Rheine, Germany.

Founded in 2022, ColorLogic has developed an extensive portfolio of colour profiling and conversion software, recently winning the 2021 Pinnacle Product Award from Printing United. Its products are sold worldwide to both end users with demanding requirements for colour quality, as well as to OEMs of printing equipment.

Hybrid Software Group CEO Mike Rottenborn comments, “Our Harlequin RIP is the market leader in speed and quality for digital printing and is used by many industry-leading OEMs, but its colour management has historically been built around the four-colour CMYK process. As the production of labels and packaging shifts to digital printing, more capable seven-colour printing devices are required to provide colour-accurate matching of brand colours. ColorLogic has long been respected as an industry leader in extended gamut colour management, and their tools provide the perfect combination of speed and quality for these demanding applications. ColorLogic will become the fifth operating company in Hybrid Software Group, joining Global Graphics Software, Hybrid Software, Meteor Inkjet and Xitron, and its products and technology will enhance the offerings of all of these companies.”

Barbara Braun-Metz, ColorLogic’s founder and CEO, adds, “I founded ColorLogic almost 20 years ago and together with the help of my great team we are proud to say that we are the leading developers of high-end colour management technologies. We have great products which are used for the daily print production all around the world and numerous partners using our technology to develop outstanding products on top of it. Now we are ready for the next big step. To ensure the future development of our technology and our products we decided to join forces with Hybrid Software Group PLC. This will allow us to grow and allocate the resources needed for future requirements while continuing to provide uninterrupted support for our existing customers and partners.”
