Esko Acquires Tillia Labs

Esko, the global developer of integrated hardware and software solutions for the print, packaging, and label in- dustries, has acquired the A.I. software company Tilia Labs in a deal that delivers on the need of brand owners and converters to connect and integrate the entire value chain through upstream digitalization. Tilia Labs’ range of intelligent algorithms for sheet lay- out, estimation, and planning complement Esko’s existing software suite and the two companies will work together to develop next generation integrated solutions. “Converters are coming under increasing pressure to deliver more volume with shorter print runs to bring ver- satility to the market, while the adoption of digital print- ing continues to grow,” said Mattias Byström, Vice Presi- dent and Group Executive Product Identification, Danaher Corporation. “This acquisition demonstrates our ongoing commitment to providing integrated software and hard- ware solutions that accelerate the go-to-market process for consumer-packaged goods.” Byström explained that the combined solutions within its software platform enable Esko to better serve its cus- tomers in the packaging, label, and wide format markets.
