Color management solutions provider GMG announces its acquisition of Aurelon, based in The Netherlands. Aurelon provides innovative, modular and scalable technology for the processing of digital information to any media that requires accurate graphic production and output.

With the acquisition of Aurelon, GMG is strengthening its presence in the wide-format inkjet print production market and is continuing its strategic expansion beyond traditional market segments.

"In addition to constantly increasing market share in our traditional proofing and press room markets, it is our goal to also become a major player in the growing large-format print production market,” says Paul Willems, CEO of GMG GmbH & Co. KG. “The acquisition of Aurelon is an important step in this direction and immediately allows us to offer A to Z production workflow solutions which fulfill the specific needs of large-format printers."

With the recent launch of the PrintFactory GMG Edition at Fespa Digital in Hamburg, GMG and Aurelon provide a complete production solution for wide-format printing. PrintFactory GMG Edition integrates the Aurelon-developed PrintFactory suite for banner, sign and super-wide-format printing with GMG ColorServer and GMG SmartProfiler to provide a fully automated process. PrintFactory GMG Edition provides scalable job preparation, workflow and processing tools for efficient, standardized printing and finishing. The EcoSave option of GMG SmartProfiler allows for 10-20% savings on ink and guarantees a short return on investment.
