Ricoh said it has reached an agreement to buy Anajet, a producer of direct to garment (DTG) printers and which will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Ricoh Printing Systems America, Inc.

“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,” a Ricoh press release stated.

Founded in 2006, Anajet was one of the first companies in the world to mass produce DTG printers and a majority of its products available, leverage Ricoh's market-leading inkjet printheads.

“While, Ricoh's experience has focused on office and commercial print technologies,” the Japanese headquartered company informed.

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 added.

Junichi Matsuno, GM - Inkjet Business Division at Ricoh said, “With the addition of Anajet, our collective customers benefit from a larger support team, added innovation and access to a services-led portfolio of solutions”

“Anajet already possesses a proven reputation as a leader in DTG printing and as such, it is a great complement to Ricoh's broad portfolio,” Matsuno too added.

“At Anajet, we have led the industry in establishing the trend of direct to garment printing,” said Karl Tipre, CEO of Anajet.

“Today we are very pleased to announce that this acquisition will provide our expanding customer base with the services of yet another global leader in Ricoh,” Tipre observed.

Anajet will continue to operate under its current name, management team and capabilities, which currently include more than 50 employees and is headquartered in California. (AR)
