The company is set to acquire 100% of the France-based producer of inkjet print engines and systems.
Kyocera Corporation (Kyocera) announced that it has concluded an agreement, effective 1 April 2023, to acquire 100% ownership of inkjet print engine and system manufacturer NIXKA S.A.S. (NIXKA), which will afterward operate as KYOCERA NIXKA Inkjet Systems S.A.S. (KYOCERA NIXKA).
Since 2007, Kyocera has been expanding its digital printing business to serve new applications in commercial and industrial printing.
NIXKA, established in 2020, develops, manufactures and sells high-efficiency, high-quality inkjet print engines and systems with more than 30 years of experiences, and with the differentiating advantage of integrated services that target specific customer needs. NIXKA’s print engines and systems utilise Kyocera’s flagship inkjet printhead products and are optimised in advance for easy use by customers with no inkjet printing expertise.
Given the trend toward custom, small-lot printing, demand for NIXKA’s solutions is expected to increase, Kyocera said.
In acquiring NIXKA, Kyocera said it will expand its business into new markets, including print engines, systems and integrated services. Kyocera aims to maximise synergies by combining expertise from both companies and by promoting the widespread use of inkjet printing technologies by developing new products and applications, contributing to the printing industry as well as the further growth and development of the Kyocera Group.
