Xerox acquires French inkjet printing firm

Rochester Business Journal
February 26, 2013

Xerox Corp. has acquired France-based Impika SA, an inkjet printing designer and producer used for industrial, commercial, security, label and package printing.

Impika offers a portfolio of water-based inkjet presses based on proprietary technology. Based in Aubagne, France, the firm sells its products to print providers through its direct sales force and through a global network of channel partners, including Xerox.

Xerox has been reselling the Impika brand in Europe since 2011, and recently expanded to several developing markets.

“A hallmark of Xerox’s long-term success is our focus on innovation, and Impika has demonstrated an innovative approach to advanced production inkjet printing that complements Xerox’s technology,” said Jeffrey Jacobson, president of Xerox’s graphic communications operations, in a statement.

“We’re bolstering our brand strength and better serving the market.”
 
The 55 employees at Impika now report to Jacobson, Xerox officials said.

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
