Esko (Gent, Belgium) has acquired Tilia Labs (Ottawa, ON), a software developer for the wide-format print and packaging industries.
In a release, Esko says Tilia’s algorithms for sheet layout, estimation and planning complement its existing software suite.
Mattias Byström, VP and group executive of product identification for Danaher Corporation, Esko’s parent company, said the deal allows Esko to help digital printers work more effectively with consumer-packaged goods brands.
“Converters are coming under increasing pressure to deliver more volume with shorter print runs to bring versatility to the market, while the adoption of digital printing continues to grow,” he said in the release. “This acquisition demonstrates our ongoing commitment to providing integrated software and hardware solutions that accelerate the go-to-market process for consumer-packaged goods.”
