With the acquisition of Kirtas Technology, Ristech increases its market share and doubles its resources

Ristech Company Inc., Canadian-based company announced today the acquisition of Kirtas Technologies, based in Victor, NY, including its manufacturing facility. The  new corporation named Kirtas Inc. will continue production of the award-winning KABIS™ Robotic Book Scanner line. “Plans are to continue manufacturing in Victor, New York” says Robb Richardson, CEO of Ristech Company and Kirtas Inc.

The KABIS™ system  is on an upward trajectory and the company has recently shipped several large book scanning solutions in North America and Internationally. “Shipments are in a slight backlog position with future prospects looking extremely promising” says Richardson.

 The company plans to increase its qualified workforce and to hire new light assembly technicians, software development programmers, and to add to its salesforce within 6 months of acquisition, further contributing to the expansion of the local economy.“We never had any doubt that the technology was rock solid.” said Mr. Richardson.  “Kirtas has a reputation of building reliable production equipment, combined with the latest in camera, computer and software technology. With the ever increasing need for libraries to make knowledge accessible, we are seeing an increase in interest to improving the production efficiencies of these digitization projects.”

The KABIS™ line of scanners can digitize a bound document at nearly 3,000 pages per hour. The systems are able to adapt to the very latest in camera and computer technology, enabling clients to leverage their investment for many years to come.

“Ristech has been extremely proactive with the transition of the Kirtas operations”, said Barry Kallander, former CEO Kirtas Technologies Inc. “There absolutely was no change in the level of support for domestic or international customers. With Ristech hiring the former Kirtas Technologies’ service technicians in June, Kirtas customers have continued to enjoy the knowledgeable, efficient and responsive level of service they have come to expect.”

Kirtas Inc. continues to build strong relationships in University Libraries, Archives, Large Public Libraries and the Service Bureau Industries. We look forward to providing continued world class support and will be soon announcing further advancements in production level book scanning technology.
