Advanced Vision Technology Joins Danaher's Product ID Platform

The Danaher Product Identification Platform (PID) includes Videojet, Esko, X-Rite Pantone and other companies, known for their work in the packaging workflow.  These companies provide solutions for every step of the workflow including color inspiration and specification, packaging design and pre-production, production quality assurance and packaging marking and coding. The strategy of PID is to work together to simplify the value chain and provide more value to customers.

An agreement has been signed to acquire Advanced Vision Technology Ltd. by Danaher Corporation’s Product Identification Platform. Our customers will benefit from new solutions that will help reduce waste and improve the quality of their production workflow. AVT’s in-line inspection systems are used by the world’s top packaging and label converters to improve product quality and efficiency of their operations.

Many of the same customers are served by X-Rite and Esko. Combining AVT’s strong position in print inspection, X-Rite’s color inspection capabilities and Esko’s packaging workflow will enable all three companies to offer solutions that simplify management of complex packaging value chains for both packaging converters and consumer packaged goods brand owners. 

With the transaction expected to be completed at the end of the second quarter, Danaher is excited to welcome the AVT team!
