“I am very pleased to announce the acquisition of Custom Gateway as we augment our market-leading capabilities with their powerful software, which we’ve evaluated thoroughly, including via several strategic customers we share,” said Ronen Samuel, Kornit Digital CEO.
“Brands, retailers, suppliers, and fulfillers of all sizes stand to grow considerably through digital transformation, and with Custom Gateway, Kornit will revolutionize on-demand digital textile production with a unique end-to-end solution, giving us a powerful competitive advantage in the market,” Samuel added.
Custom Gateway’s platform enables content sourcing, creation, content management and display at the front end. Orders created are captured by an order management system and are directed to the appropriate back-end production sites using routing algorithms.
Once orders proceed to the production floor, they are routed and managed, to allow for efficient on-demand production on a mass scale. The entire process from order creation to shipment is enriched with integrations to existing IT environments, data-driven decisioning and business intelligence analytics.
Custom Gateway has more than 300 active customers globally, including brand names such as the UK’s largest fashion retailer Next, as well as other leading sports, fashion and content brands.
