Advanced scanners for large format images

Global Scanning A/S is the world’s leading manufacturer of advanced Large Format Scanners sold under the brands of Contex and Colortrac. Large Format Scanners are used to scan large (larger than A3) and odd format objects for preserving, sharing and reuse. Customers reside in a wide range of industries, e.g., architecture, engineering, construction, oil and gas, infrastructure, print shops, and public institutions.

The products are sold partly through a number of large format printer OEMs, such as Hewlett-Packard, Canon, Epson and Xerox, and partly through a world-wide distributor network. The company runs its main operations from Denmark, China and the UK, and has sales offices worldwide.

The Large Format market is going through the same conversion to bundled Printer-Scanners that already happened in the Office Printer-Scanner market and the company is in a strong position to capitalise on this opportunity. PCI V invested in Global Scanning in 2013 with a focus on growth via acquisitions, new product launches and capturing the opportunity in the OEM market.
