EFI acquires Italian textile printing solutions manufacturer Reggiani Macchine

July 06, 2015

EFI has bought its way into the digital inkjet textile space with the strategic acquisition of Reggiani Macchine. Based in Bergamo, Italy, Reggiani's inkjet technologies, which will be rebranded as EFI Reggiani, address the full scope of advanced textile printing, with versatile printers suitable for water based dispersed, acid, pigment and reactive dye printing inks.

Respondents in the recent FESPA/InfoTrends survey selected UV inkjet printers as their top expected technology purchase, followed closely by textile printers.

"This acquisition gives EFI an immediate leadership position in one of the world's largest industries undergoing the transformation from analogue printing to digital. The textile printing market is just beginning that transition, which will enable manufacturers to shift from long run to on-demand manufacturing, responding to the increasing demands of short runs and customisations," says EFI CEO Guy Gecht. "The addition of Reggiani's innovative team and their 'Made in Italy' textile printing technology, which is renowned worldwide, will drive continued growth in industrial textile, and also enable EFI's customers to expand into soft signage based display graphics using Reggiani's water-based industrial inkjet printers."

Reggiani has customers in more than 120 countries served by a wide distribution network and agents in over 40 countries.
