Cooperation in the Field of Quality Assurance Systems
BST eltromat Acquires a Majority Stake in Nyquist Systems
BST eltromat International, a manufacturer of quality assurance systems for web-processing industries based in Bielefeld, Germany, has increased its stake in Nyquist Systems GmbH, Landsberg am Lech, Germany, through its parent company elexis AG. BST now holds a majority interest in the company which makes inspection systems for narrow web printing processes.
The first investment in Nyquist Systems was acquired at the beginning of 2018. BST eltromat has been distributing the inspection systems of the TubeScan family from Nyquist Systems worldwide for five years as part of an exclusive partnership. With their performance and reliability, these systems complement BST eltromat's offering in the areas of 100% inspection and web monitoring in the narrow web market. Nyquist Systems, in turn, benefits from BST eltromat's high profile and the company's global sales and service network. According to BST, this allows customer projects to be implemented quickly.
“The acquisition of the majority stake in Nyquist Systems was a strategic decision. BST eltromat is now integrated into the future developments of Nyquist Systems and can thus optimally adapt the shared solution portfolio to the requirements of label and packaging printing," says BST eltromat Managing Director Kristian Jünke, explaining his company's motivation to increase its stake in Nyquist Systems after only one year.
“With BST eltromat behind it, Nyquist Systems has more power than ever before in regard to developing new innovative features and products. For this reason alone, the acquisition of the majority stake by BST eltromat is good news for our shared customers. It gives them the long-term assurance that, in BST eltromat and Nyquist Systems, they have stable partners they can rely on,” said Nyquist Systems Managing Director Dr. Stephan Krebs, welcoming the even closer cooperation between the two companies.
Nyquist Systems was founded in 2004 and established itself in the market as a provider of inspection systems for narrow web printing processes. Over the years, Nyquist Systems has successively expanded its product portfolio. The customer-specific configurable solutions of the TubeScan family cover a wide range of different requirements for print inspection with integrated web monitoring in narrow web printing.
BST eltromat has been presenting the TubeScan family solutions from Nyquist Systems at its exhibition booths at international exhibitions for years. This spring, for example, the company will be showing the innovative TubeScan Digital Strobe 4k at ICE Europe 2019.
