Agfa Graphics, Mortsel, Belgium, announced Wednesday that it has sold Xitron Inc., which was acquired by Agfa as part of the company’s Autologic acquisition at the end of 2001.
The small but well known RIP developer and integrator becomes a wholly owned, independently operated subsidiary of the Vanguard Graphics International Group of Companies.
Privately held VGI was established to acquire and consolidate graphic arts companies that serve the small to medium sized printer. Xitron becomes VGI’s third operating company, joining prepress and CTP systems supplier Printware, St. Paul, Minnesota, and RIP and platesetter designer Highwater Designs, Cheltenham, England.
