AVT and Erhardt+Leimer – Strategic alliance formed

Erhardt+Leimer (E+L), a manufacturer of process control equipment to web-based industries, and AVT, supplier of systems for print inspection, print process control and quality assurance, have entered into an agreement to form an alliance that will broaden their product portfolios and strengthen services for customers of both companies, including end users and OEMs.

The first step in the strategic alliance will see AVT acquire E+L’s automatic print inspection technologies, and assume the responsibility to develop and manage these for both companies’ customers in label and packaging applications. In return E+L will be entitled to future earn outs and a cash payment as per the set terms. The expected agreement makes AVT the official inspection and press control provider for E+L, and gives it responsibility for the companies’ mutual automatic print inspection technology development, including both current products and ongoing product developments.
