Its primary manufacturing operations are concentrated in Itasca, Illinois (USA) and Egelsbach (Germany).
Baldwin CEO Gerald Nathe says the acquisition of Oxy-Dry is an important step in the continuing process of building Baldwin’s presence in its core market segment of accessories and controls.
“Oxy-Dry is a well-known and well-respected name in the industry, particularly with its brush blanket cleaning technology. This technology further strengthens Baldwin’s position as a full provider of cleaning applications in the offset printing market, particularly in the newspaper and commercial web marketplace,” he says.
“This acquisition represents a great opportunity to combine Oxy-Dry’s technology with our own and to utilise our Asian presence to expand the distribution of Oxy-Dry products.”
Ed McLouglin, Oxy-Dry’s CEO says the company has been serving the print industry for over 65 years “and has a well-earned reputation for excellence with its global customer base.”
“We will be able to better serve our combined customer base with this broader range of Baldwin and Oxy-Dry products.’”
