Investments in technologies that will help accelerate growth in its fast-growing industrial inkjet business will in future be prioritized by EFI. The goal is to be an industry leader in the analog-to-digital transition. Another focus of investment is the Fiery digital front-end business. As part of this focused strategy, Electronics For Imaging, Inc. (EFI), Fremont, CA/USA, has completed a sale of its eProductivity Software (EPS) packaging and print productivity software business to an affiliate of Symphony Technology Group, Palo Alto, CA/USA.
The industrial inkjet space is ripe with opportunity in existing and adjacent vertical markets. EFI Inkjet will continue to drive its leadership in high-volume, shuttle and single-pass inkjet technology, which the company has currently implemented in award-winning, high-performance products for the packaging, display graphics, textile, and building materials/decor verticals. EFI will also leverage its expertise in hardware, mechanical control software, high-speed electronics, services, cloud-connected devices, and ink innovations to deliver the next generation of versatile, high-volume, high-quality printers and presses.
Following the realignment, EFI is making investments in R&D to strengthen its position in core markets while entering new categories – including the development of technologies to address new applications for the textile space and for packaging.
