AnaJet Direct to Garment Printing and Ricoh

It appears that Ricoh has come to terms with Anajet on an acquisition.

Ricoh Company, Ltd. today announced that the company has reached an agreement to buy AnaJet, the leader in direct to garment (DTG) printing. This acquisition is the latest strategic investment by Ricoh to strengthen its industrial inkjet business while enabling its customers to move forward new ideas and drive imaginative thinking. Located in the U.S., AnaJet will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Ricoh Printing Systems America, Inc.

Founded in 2006, AnaJet was one of the first companies in the world to mass produce DTG printers. Today, the company is a global market leader in the DTG industry. The majority of AnaJet products available today leverage Ricoh’s market-leading inkjet printheads.

Ricoh’s experience has focused on office and commercial print technologies. The addition of the AnaJet portfolio will help Ricoh further its position in the industrial inkjet market, a market where Ricoh maintains global leadership in inkjet printhead development. With AnaJet’s solutions combined with the broad Ricoh portfolio, customers will now have the ability to more effectively deliver a broader solution set to their end users.

Ricoh is a global technology company specializing in office imaging equipment, production print solutions, document management systems and IT services. Headquartered in Tokyo, Ricoh Group operates in about 200 countries and regions. In the financial year ending March 2015, Ricoh Group had worldwide sales of 2,231 billion yen (approx. 18.5 billion USD).

As the first manufacturer to mass-produce direct to garment printers in the United States, AnaJet continues to pour intensive effort and cost into building up its capabilities and streamlining the path from idea to full-scale production and fulfillment. All of their printers are currently designed, assembled, tested, shipped and supported from their headquarters in Costa Mesa, California.
