Q.I. Press Controls expands activities into labelling and packaging market

Monday, January 18, 2016

Press release from the issuing company

Oosterhout - As from today, the products of German-based company INTRO International become part of Q.I. Press Controls (QIPC). QIPC, developer and supplier of measurement & control systems for web offset printing presses, has acquired the assets and the intellectual property of INTRO International as part of a so-called asset deal.

Like QIPC, INTRO International is responsible for developing and supplying optical measuring & control systems to the print industry. However, the German-based family business has a greater focus on narrow web presses and digital printing, as opposed to QIPC, which has hitherto concentrated on web offset printing presses. “Our aim is to expand into digital printing and the labelling and packaging market”, explains Menno Jansen, one of the two directors at QIPC. “Their optical measurement systems are a perfect match for our own products. By furthering the development of their products through our own extensive R&D team, we can bring about greater synergy.”

INTRO International’s products will now be traded under the QIPC-INTRO name (www.qipc-intro.com ). Contact was first established between QIPC and INTRO International in 2013. “Our relationship goes back some way”, explains INTRO International's Sascha Eschweiler.“ Contact between the two companies has always been good and that's now crystallised into something more tangible.”Sascha Eschweiler, who now joins the QIPC team, is also keenly aware of the opportunities that this new collaboration offers. “From our perspective, as a family-run concern, I see great potential in raising our products to a new level backed by the support and know-how QIPC and Engineering Automation Electronics (EAE). We will certainly benefit enormously from their global sales and service network in increasing the reach of our products.”

Sascha Eschweiler himself sees the existing collaboration between QIPC and EAE as an added bonus. EAE develops control systems for printing presses and is also owned by QIPC. “With the addition of INTRO International and EAE, QIPC is now taking responsibility for a larger share of the production process”, Menno Jansen adds. “This joining of forces offers customers convenience and, as such, the three companies can capitalise collectively on their individual strengths.”
