Vigitek Officially Changes Name to QuadTech Ireland

QuadTech Unifies Brand with Subsidiary Name Change

Sussex, WI--3 August 2009--QuadTech, Inc., the world’s preeminent designer and manufacturer of automated print controls, today announced the official corporate name change of its Irish subsidiary Vigitek, to QuadTech Ireland. Vigitek was purchased in May of 2008, and is the leading designer and manufacturer of 100 percent print inspection technology.

For over 30 years, the QuadTech name has been earning recognition and acclaim around the world for its register and color control technology. The company is widely recognized for its commitment to service excellence and product innovation. The name change from Vigitek to QuadTech Ireland not only provides a brand unity, but also increases exposure of the state-of-the-art, print-defect detection technology to those global customers familiar with the QuadTech name.

“Over the past year we have been integrating Vigitek into the QuadTech family,” said Karl Fritchen, President of QuadTech. “Now under a unified brand, QuadTech and QuadTech Ireland can offer continuous defect-detection solutions and best-in-class register and color controls that not only meet, but exceed our customers’ expectations. We already have our engineering teams sharing expertise and enhancing our inspection technology. We are developing new capabilities and features—such as color monitoring and control—that the market is very hungry to implement.”

In addition to a change in the company name, the former Vigitek products will also be renamed to fit within the QuadTech family of product offerings. Customers in need of true 100 percent inspection solutions will find them in the QuadTech® Inspection System, QuadTech® Data Central® for Inspection, and QuadTech® Waste Management System. All products meet the high standards for quality and performance for which QuadTech is known.
