Solaris will become part of Markem-Imaje (M-I) after being acquired by M-I parent company Dover, enabling the expansion of the group's laser technology solutions for marking and coding.

Markem-Imaje is a global manufacturer of product identification and traceability solutions within Dover Corporation’s imaging and identification segment. The acquisition of Solaris will enhance Markem-Imaje’s laser technology product line and further strengthen its position as a leading provider of identification and traceability equipment. According to Markem-Imaje, this product line expansion will enable the group to better address growing customer demand for laser coding technologies, which offer reliability and productivity advantages that are important in certain applications.

Headquartered in Warsaw, Poland, Solaris supplies advanced fibre, ultraviolet, and carbon dioxide laser systems used for product marking and coding in industrial and packaging applications across a broad range of end markets. Solaris has served the marking and coding industry for more than 25 years.

In a statement Solaris Laser S.A. said, “We are excited about this opportunity with Dover and Markem-Imaje as it will enable Solaris to develop and sell more of our laser technology worldwide, while also preserving the agile, innovative spirit of Solaris. The Solaris operations and services will remain in place... and Solaris will continue to manufacture, sell, service and support the Solaris products under the Solaris brand... Solaris will also remain focused on continuous innovation of the Solaris branded product range to continue providing reliable solutions.”

Vincent Vanderpoel, CEO of Markem-Imaje, said: “Our customers are increasingly adopting laser marking solutions for more of their product identification and packaging applications. The addition of Solaris will enable Markem-Imaje and Solaris to offer the most innovative and comprehensive range of laser marking solutions for our customers’ product identification needs in both industrial and fast-moving consumer goods applications.”

Markem-Imaje Australia national sales manager Matt Deeran said, “From a local perspective, this is a major acquisition for us that will bring significant benefit to the local market.”

“It's a great addition to expand the existing strong laser portfolio of Markem-Imaje whose expertise around user friendly control interfaces and software integration will enhance the wide range of laser technologies offered by Solaris. On the back of the Systech acquisition earlier this year, this is good news for Markem-Imaje customers.”

In the ANZ region, Solaris is represented by Matthews Australasia. From the Solaris side, the acquisition will not change the Solaris business, according to CEO of Matthews, Mark Dingley.

“Solaris will continue to sell its products under the Solaris Laser brand to Matthews Australasia and other existing Solaris distributors around the world,” Dingley said.

“Matthews has enjoyed a trusted 20-year partnership with Solaris Laser that has brought a range of world-first laser coding innovations to our customers in Australia. We look forward to providing ongoing industry leading, sales and technical support to our Solaris laser customers and that Solaris themselves will also remain focused on continuous innovation of the Solaris product range, with the ultimate goal of continuing to provide the most reliable, state-of-the-art laser coding solutions available on the market. This will ensure Matthews continues to deliver to the Australian manufacturers best in class laser coding solutions well into the future.”
