The EFI ribbon-cutting ceremony for its quarter-million-square-foot facility in Manchester, N.H., was a grand affair. More than 100 media, dignitaries, and other guests filled the main demonstration room. They were surrounded by gigantic inkjet printers and toured one of the most advanced facilities for the development, manufacture, and operation of advanced inkjet systems. These systems are installed in plants in every hemisphere.

The building is proximate to the Manchester-Boston Airport and will serve as a major demonstration and training center for the company. 

CEO Guy Gecht told the crowd how the software company underwent a transformation in 2004 and 2005 when it acquired Vutek of Meredith, N.H. The combination of all its businesses has allowed EFI to exceed an annual revenue of $1 billion.
