Imaging Technologies


Helping its customers to innovate their packaging through ground-breaking new printing technologies 




People worldwide



One of the world’s leading providers of imaging technologies for the graphics customisation of printed packaging materials. Montagu completed the acquisition of Kodak’s Flexographic Packaging Division in April 2019. Shortly after the transaction closed, the business was renamed “Miraclon”.

Miraclon’s flagship flexographic plate imaging system, FLEXCEL NX, has received industry-wide acclaim for its leading image resolution quality, since debuting on the market in 2008. Flexography is the most common form of packaging printing and can apply images on almost any substrate, with a speciality in flexible packaging.

A Montagu business

  • Industry-acclaimed flagship flexographic plate imaging system
  • Truly differentiated product with proprietary “Thermal Imaging Layer” technology that is protected by IP
  • Strong recurring ‘razor-razorblade’ revenue model
  • Resilient end-market with positive tailwinds driven by increased globalisation of packaged goods brands and growing end-user requirements for packaging (for example: more detailed product information)

Innovation driving growth

We are working in close partnership with the management team to support the separation from Kodak, accelerate investments in product innovation & customer service, and continue Miraclon’s impressive track record of growth. 

Since our investment, Miraclon has launched its new state of the art, water-based KODAK FLEXCEL Ultra proposition, which is higher quality, faster and allows customers to reduce their environmental impact. Click here to understand more.
