AVT to merge into Danaher platform

AVT will be offered alongside X-Rite and Esko to simplify value chains

Europe Advanced Vision Technology (AVT), a leader in automatic print inspection, process control, quality assurance, and colour control for printing applications has entered into a definitive merger agreement with Pelican Merger Holdings after which it will be acquired by Danaher Corporation’s Product Identification Platform.

AVT’s in-line inspection systems are used by packaging and label converters to improve product quality and efficiency of their operations. Many of the same customers are served by X-Rite and Esko, market-leading companies within Danaher’s Product Identification Platform.

Combining AVT’s strong position in print inspection and quality control with X-Rite’s colour inspection capabilities, and Esko’s packaging workflow will enable the companies to offer solutions that simplify management of complex packaging value chains for both packaging converters and CPG brand owners, said AVT.

“This is an exciting next step in the development of AVT, both for our cus tomers and for our associates,” said AVT CEO Jaron Lotan. “Being part of Danaher’s Product Identification Platform will strengthen our ability to continue to execute our existing strategy and will enable us to bring more innovative and connected solutions for the packaging and label value chain.”

“We are thrilled to have AVT join Danaher’s Product Identification Platform, which includes X-Rite, Pantone, Esko, MediaBeacon, Videojet, Linx, Laetus and Foba,” said Joakim Weidemanis, group executive for Danaher’s Product ID platform.
