Fremont, Calif.-based Electronics For Imaging Inc. (EFI) has announced plans to move its ink-jet business to a new 250,000-square-foot facility in Londonderry, N.H., in early 2018. The EFI™ Inkjet center will consolidate research and development, manufacturing, warehousing, training, and service for EFI VUTEk® and wide format printers into one facility. Sales and marketing management for EFI’s full portfolio of narrow, wide- and superwide-format industrial ink-jet printers and presses also will be housed at the center. In addition, the center will feature a briefing and demonstration center for customers.
“EFI’s annual ink-jet revenues are closing in on $500 million, and it is happening because our customers are capitalizing on new market opportunities using our expanding portfolio of industrial ink-jet printers,” said Scott Schinlever, senior vice president and general manager, EFI Inkjet.
EFI cites the proximity of the center to the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport as well as the pool of talent in the greater Boston metropolitan area as reasons for the site’s selection.
