Former competitors QuadTech, Web Printing Controls, and PC Industries combine products, expertise, and engineering talent in U.S. office

Baldwin Vision Systems, a business division of Baldwin Technology Company Inc., held a ribbon cutting and grand opening celebration at its new headquarters in Waukesha, Wisconsin. The Vision Systems division designs and manufactures advanced control technology for the printing industry, specializing in automated color management and defect management solutions. In December 2017, Baldwin Technology Company formed the new business division by acquiring the products and expertise of QuadTech, Web Printing Controls, and PC Industries. By combining the three businesses, Baldwin is able to offer and support a comprehensive automation portfolio to printers worldwide.

The new Waukesha office houses the division’s administrative, engineering, executive leadership, marketing, sales, and customer support teams — including a 24/7/365 service Help Desk. In addition to the Waukesha headquarters, the new division has regional offices located in Amsterdam, Gandhinagar, Shanghai and Tokyo. Sales and service teams are strategically located throughout the world, while manufacturing facilities have been consolidated at the Fairfield, Illinois USA location.

Company President Brent Becker addressed employees at the ribbon cutting: “It can’t be underestimated how much hard work went into this. QuadTech, PCI, WPC together have been solidified into Baldwin Vision Systems, and the team has really rallied around that. We were competitors before, now teammates with a common goal and a common message. One team, one focus. To make that switch is not always easy, and I’ve seen this team do it better than I’ve ever seen anyone else do it in my career. The family of Baldwin is very excited that we’re part of this, and that we have arrived at this day — in this location and at our new manufacturing facility in Fairfield. We’re excited about the future we have together, and we’re well-positioned to move forward with the strategies we’ve been talking about for the last five months.”
