Gerber Technology Acquires MCT Digital
Gerber Technology (Tolland, CT) announced that it has acquired MCT Digital (New Berlin, WI), adding modular laser cutting technology to Gerber's existing industrial-strength, finishing-solution hardware and software portfolio. The addition of MCT’s high-end, large-format cutting furthers Gerber's involvement in the sign, graphics and packaging industries. Gerber also views MCT as a key technology platform to serve its industrial markets.
The track records of 30 and 50 years for MCT and Gerber, respectively demonstrate innovative technologies that have transformed the way their customers work. Gerber invented automated cutting in 1968 and revolutionized the way vinyl was designed and cut in the sign and graphics space with the introduction of OMEGA software and GERBER EDGE thermal transfer printer. Likewise, Steen Mikkelsen, CEO of MCT Digital, was directly responsible for the introduction of today’s print-to-cut workflow in the sign, graphics and packaging industries with his development of the i-cut software.
“The product leadership, engineering and technical knowledge of these two companies creates countless opportunities to help our customers improve their productivity, streamline their workflows and improve overall efficiency,” said Scott Schinlever, president and chief operating officer, Automation Solutions for Gerber Technology.
