Esko, the global developer of integrated hardware and software solutions for the print, packaging, and label industries, has acquired imposition A.I. software company Tilia Labs, in a deal that delivers on the need of brand owners and converters to connect and integrate the entire value chain through upstream digitalization.

We are therefore thrilled that our technology for sheet and roll optimization, automation, planning, and estimation has been identified as a perfect fit with the market-leading Esko suite of solutions.”

Mattias Byström concluded: “This acquisition also underlines our commitment to delivering the tools that serve to connect brands and converters upstream. For all our customers continuing their digital transformation journey, the integration of these next generation tools means businesses will be able to digitize, automate and connect more efficiently to drive significant workflow and operational advantages, as well as sustainability benefits.”
