ROCHESTER, NY | Kodak and Bobst have formed a strategic development agreement to integrate Kodak technology into the Bobst portfolio of packaging production equipment, reportedly in response to increasing demand for new solutions addressing flexible, folding carton, and corrugated applications.
“Flexibility, time to market, and improved total cost of ownership are increasinglyly important to our customers,” says Jean-Pascal Bobst, CEO of Bobst Group. “To extend the capabilities of packaging production equipment, we decided to join forces with Kodak, in particular because of their strength in the digital arena. Our companies are working together on innovative industrial solutions that will offer our customers unique opportunities to expand their businesses. We are looking forward to completion of development work and rigorous testing, and ultimately to the announcement to our customers of innovations.”
“Bobst is admired throughout the packaging industry as a provider of high quality solutions and for anticipating and meeting the changing needs of its customers,” says Kodak chairman and CEO Antonio M. Perez. “Bobst’s commitment to introducing innovative products, its loyal customer base, and Kodak’s portfolio of advanced technologies, including the Kodak Stream Inkjet technology, are a powerful combination that we believe will stimulate growth and transformation for Bobst customers and for our industry.
