Volaris Group, based in Mississauga, Ont., has completed its eighth acquisition in the communications and media vertical with the acquisition of Aleyant Systems, a global web-to-print, estimation and production, and prepress automation workflow software provider to graphics and commercial print professionals.
Founded in 2005, Aleyant’s flagship product, Pressero, is designed to power Cloud-based websites, stores and portals for commercial printers, in-plants, print brokers and distributors, digital and wide format printers, and specialty printers.
“The acquisition of Aleyant enables us to capture the full market opportunity of future high growth market trends, including graphics and commercial printers expanding into garment and industrial printing” said David Nyland, Portfolio Leader and President, Communications & Media vertical at Volaris. “We like the great companies we acquire to stay the great companies they are, keeping in place the processes that have made them successful, while leveraging Volaris’ business and financial expertise for continuous improvement.”
Aleyant says its solutions are deployed in 43 countries across North America, Europe and Asia. Its partners include Canon Solutions of America, HP, Fujifilm and Fuji Xerox.
“As we looked for the best way to take Aleyant to the next level, Volaris stood out as the type of purchaser we were seeking,” says Greg Salzman, Aleyant Founder and President, describing the deal as a win-win-win situation for customers, employees and Volaris. “We liked their practice of ‘buy and hold forever,’ as well as their dedication to letting acquired companies run as autonomously as possible, maintaining our corporate identify, and enhancing the brand image we have worked so hard to build in the market. Their backing provides us with resources and financial stability to accelerate our growth while protecting the investments our customers have made in us.”
