EFI Acquires Ink Developer Rialco

UK-based asset supplies dye powders, color products.

EFI has announced the acquisition of Bradford, UK-based Rialco, a supplier of dye powders and color products for digital printers and other industrial manufacturers.

“The deal announced today gives EFI the platform to extend the technical advantages we provide to customers in the signage, textile, ceramics, and other industries that are rapidly transitioning from analog to digital printing,” says Stephen Emery, VP of EFI’s ink division, in a release.

The company cites new research from Smithers Pira predicting an 18.4-percent year-over-year growth in dye-sublimated material print volumes through 2021 as key motivation for the move.
