PC Industries acquired by Baldwin to expand capabilities and solutions.

High speed 100% inspection technology added to core Web Process Control solutions

PC Industries is pleased to announce that as of September 13, 2017 we have joined Baldwin Technology Company, a $160M world leader in providing process automation solutions, consumables and services to the print, textile and film industries.    
Baldwin currently employs over 731 people at its company locations worldwide, and is a part of Barry-Wehmiller Company, a $2.6B manufacturing and services company. The Barry-Wehmiller companies bring technology, innovation, and performance to a diverse platform of industries, including packaging, paper, converting, sheeting, corrugating, engineering, and IT consulting.
“The integration of PC Industries will add scale to our Vision business by opening up new customer opportunities and enhancing our ability to provide further capabilities to our existing customers,” said Brent Becker, CEO of Baldwin. “Baldwin’s global sales and service platform will allow PC Industries to expand its reach. The combination of their expertise in print quality verification and process data, and our expertise in process control will enhance our opportunities to provide the next level of fully automated closed loop process control.” 
PC Industries will partner closely with the Baldwin Technology Company, Web Printing Controls, to expand and develop both product lines of robust process automation and quality control technologies for the Narrow and Wide Web markets. This partnership will leverage the combined knowledge base to improve what is already world class technical sales and support.

PC Industries is the fourth acquisition in Baldwin’s growing family of companies since Baldwin joined Barry-Wehmiller in 2012. Baldwin will continue to seek add-on acquisitions, with a focus on companies that manufacture process-automation equipment, components and consumables for the printing, packaging and other industrial segments around the world. 
By bringing in new expertise, Baldwin will create a solid and stable foundation of technology, knowledge, and service from which the entire family of companies will benefit. PC Industries couldn’t be more excited to join the Baldwin family, and leverage the global set of resources and experience to further support our customers.

For more than 42 years, PC Industries has supported the printing, pharmaceutical, label, and security industries with high quality, technically advanced quality improvement solutions and unparalleled customer support. Since the early 1980’s, they have focused on developing some of the most advanced and reliable print inspection systems on the market. They offer a wide variety of print inspection solutions, tailored to address quality control issues from pre-press and throughout print production. They develop easy-to-use systems that fit seamlessly into the production process, either off-line or in-line.
Baldwin Technology Company, Inc. is a leading global manufacturer and supplier of process-automation equipment and related consumables for the printing, packaging and other industrial segments, including technical textiles, chip and fiberboard, and film extrusion. Through their global footprint, Baldwin offers its customers a broad range of market-leading technologies, products and systems that enhance the quality of industrial-produced products, with a focus on improving the economic and environmental efficiency of the production process.
