Our Vision & Mission

Vision: The Power of Print

Notwithstanding the digitization of our daily lives, print continues to play a crucial role and the power of print remains unequalled. Even though it is and will be challenged in different ways and to different degrees depending on segment and region, print is here to stay and will continue to evolve and grow in the future, generating plenty of business opportunities.

Mission: We Embody Print

At Agfa Graphics, print is part of our DNA. We live and breathe it. Relying on 150 years of experience and a truly global footprint, we develop sustainable, cost-effective and integrated solutions for the commercial, newspaper, packaging & labels, sign & display, industrial and security printing industries.

The ultimate aim? Creating value for our customers, enabling them to grow!

Driven by Innovation

  • 150 years of experience and innovation from the first diffusion transfer film over the first PDF-based workflow and the first chemistry-free plate to advanced cloud-based services.
  • With our prepress portfolio, we focus on offering our customers solutions that are ahead of the game in terms of ecology, economy, and extra convenience—or ECO³.
  • Our innovations in inkjet technology rely on a thorough understanding of the print production process and our unparalleled knowledge of color management, workflow technology and media.
  • Our extensive patent portfolio is evidence of our dedication to developing solid innovations that continually take our customers to the next level of quality and productivity.
  • We make acquisitions that keep us ahead by gaining expertise, broadening our portfolio, and gaining market knowledge.
  • In each of our markets, we cooperate closely with customers, as well as industry organizations and technology partners to extend our versatility.

Environmental Responsibility

It has long been part of Agfa's mission to reduce our impact on the environment.

We develop products that offer our customers ways to eliminate toxic chemicals, reduce waste, lower ink and water consumption, save energy and ultimately increase efficiency and save costs.

Our products are designed, developed and manufactured in such a way that production, storage, transport and use, as well as the waste treatment at the end of the life cycle have minimal impact on safety, health and environment.

Complete Solutions

Success is not just about a single piece of technology. It is about developing state-of-the-art products and integrating them into efficient, automated and highly productive workflows that simply our customers’ operations. That is why our consumables, hardware, software and services work together as ‘matched components’. We do more than answering our customers' questions; we give them modular and scalable real-life solutions that offer long-term benefits.
