Bureau Veritas To Install GretagMacbeth Solutions

Brockton, Mass.-based Bureau Veritas Consumer Products Services (BVCPS) will implement New Windsor,
N.Y.-based GretagMacbeth LLC’s Enterprise Color Management (ECM) program at its Brockton-based
ColorMat Division and at a facility in Turkey. The ECM program includes GretagMacbeth’s
NetProfiler, which will network with Bureau Veritas’ color-matching systems via the Internet,
allowing central, remote management of color data; and ensuring color accuracy, according to
GretagMacbeth. Also included in the program are NetPalette, which allows instant communication of
electronic color samples via the Internet, and the Color iMatch system for further automation of
the dyeing process. Bureau Veritas expects to fully implement the program by the end of the year.
