BANGALORE: Electronics For Imaging (EFI), the world leader in imaging solutions for network printing, Thursday announced it is opening an expanded engineering office in Bangalore.

The Bangalore office has become one of EFI's fastest growing R& D departments because of the region's highly trained and experienced engineering work force. Additionally, many of EFI's global customers are either located here or do
business in India, making this an increasingly important market for EFI.

"India is increasingly important in our strategic plans. We are tremendously excited to set up this development center where we will be able to increase our R&D efforts as well as better understand and serve our customers' needs in the region," said Guy Gecht, CEO, EFI.

Electronics for Imaging acquired Unimobile, a wireless messaging company, last year. Unimobile's engineering team was primarily located in Bangalore, making expansion of EFI's engineering efforts in the region a natural step.

Vasudev Bhandarkar, VP and GM, EFI's Unimobile Division, said, "We are proud that EFI is increasing its overall R& D efforts in the region. EFI has clearly seen, through the successes of Unimobile's India-based engineering team, that Bangalore offers a highly qualified and dedicated work force who can help EFI continue to lead in technology innovation."

EFI will also be exploring potential new partnerships in the Indian market. Globally, EFI has partnerships with companies like Xerox, Canon, Fuji, Minolta and HP among others.

Globally, EFI is recognized for leading the digital printing revolution with its breakthrough Fiery servers- the industry standard and market leader in high quality, high-speed controllers for office and professional printing. In April, the company announced that it had sold its one millionth Fiery controller.

EFI has other engineering centers in the U.S., Europe and Japan.
