COHOES, NY | Mohawk Fine Papers, claimed North America's largest privately owned manufacturer of fine papers for commercial and digital printing, finalizes the purchase of Bravo Solutions, Elmira, NY, a supplier of specialty synthetic and paper substrates for digital printing. The acquisition includes all brands and certain assets, as well as manufacturing capacity for converted products, which will remain in Elmira.
Bravo substrates are engineered for both dry toner presses as well as HP Indigo presses. Mohawk reports it plans to fully integrate the Bravo portfolio, including pressure-sensitive, synthetic substrates, integrated products, embedded card sheets, and magnetic materials, into the existing Mohawk digital product offering to create “the most extensive portfolio of digital substrates in the world.”
According to Thomas D. O’Connor Jr., Mohawk’s chairman and CEO, “This acquisition is a strategic opportunity for Mohawk and its customers. We are committed to expanding our offerings to the growing digital print market. These premium substrates represent high value, high volume opportunities for printers, merchants and their customers and we expect Bravo sales and customer service to transition smoothly to Mohawk starting today.”
