Bobst accelerates its digital investments

Bobst recently announced the acquisition of the remaining 49.9% in Mouvent AG to reinforce the development of its printing portfolio.

Bobst acquired 50.1% of RADEX in June 2017 to develop Mouvent AG, a start-up company focusing on digital inkjet printing. The intent was to explore and deliver the next innovations to transform packaging production. The work was accomplished over the last three years.

Mouvent’s innovative cluster technology has been deployed in the Mouvent LB-701, LB-702, and the Bobst Master DM5 presses. Despite the Covid-19 situation, more than 20 presses have been sold in Europe and the USA during 2020. The Bobst digital portfolio is opening new horizons for label converters, combining high-quality printing, high productivity, and the right economics. It is answering the growing demand for short runs, faster time-to-market, versioning, and seasonal products.

With this acquisition, Bobst is poised to further accelerate its leadership in printing and converting. New digital inkjet platforms and new water-based inks will soon be announced, answering the sustainability requirements and shaping the future of the packaging world.
