Agfa has revamped its divisional structure and created three separate divisions for its print-related activities, as the group seeks more partnerships for future growth. Speaking as Agfa-Gevaert Group announced its year-end results to 31 December 2018, chief executive Christian Reinaudo said the business had made “major steps to transform our group”. Its Healthcare IT business has been renamed Agfa Healthcare and has been separated from the rest of the group. The former Agfa Graphics and Speciality Products businesses have been renamed Agfa, which now comprises three divisions: Offset Solutions (the pre-press business); Digital Print & Chemicals (the inkjet business and Specialty Products including synthetic papers); and Radiology Solutions (the imaging activities of the former Healthcare business). “This simplified divisional structure is technology- and solutions-based and will allow Agfa to seek further partnerships,” the firm stated. Reinaudo commented: “The idea of the split is to give some independence to the two units to help them develop partnerships and grow independently.” “I cannot commit but I think we are close to the end of decline in the top line of Agfa,” Reinaudo added.
