EFI acquires textiles ink manufacturer Boya Kimya


EFI has announced the acquisition of Turkish company BDR Boya Kimya, a leading manufacturer of reactive inkjet inks for industrial digital textile printing. This will boost EFI’s Reggiani business in key textile markets. The deal comes three weeks after the digital printing technology manufacturer said it was being sold for $US1.7 billion to a private equity firm. BDR is being integrated into EFI Reggiani, a global leader in textile printer technology, and it will continue to develop inks, working closely with and supporting its clients while expanding and growing its capabilities. BDR’s employees are joining EFI, working from their current sites in Turkey. Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. The synergies arising with BDR and the world-class portfolio of EFI Reggiani textile printers will be a key point of emphasis for the new venture to continue providing high-quality products and innovation.
