ECRM Imaging Systems is a global leader in cost-effective quality imaging technologies for commercial graphic arts and publishing businesses. In three decades as a supplier to these businesses, ECRM has successfully applied a broad range of optical, imaging, laser, mechanical, and analog- and digital-electronic technologies to their needs.

The Massachusetts-based company has developed, sold, and supported more than 22,000 imaging devices and scanners on every continent through graphic arts equipment dealers and re-sellers, supporting them with service centers in North America, Europe, and the Asia-Pacific region. An ISO 9001-registered company, ECRM is dedicated to maintaining the highest standards in research and development, design, manufacturing, service, and support. In an industry characterized by fast-moving technology and constant, dramatically changing business variables, ECRM has remained a resourceful developer, a reliable manufacturer, and a customer-responsive marketer.

Over Three Decades Serving Publishing and Graphic Arts Businesses
ECRM was founded in the Spring of 1969 by Professors Samuel J. Mason, William Schreiber, and Donald Troxel, all PhDs from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Melvin Fennell from The Associated Press. They developed the first commercially successful optical character recognition (OCR) machine.

In the 1970's, the company developed the Autokon, the first laser-based scanning camera to have broad impact on the publishing industry, becoming a de facto standard for high quality halftone images. ECRM engineers also created the PelBox, an imaging device with a longstanding reputation for high-quality film and paper recording. In 1983, William Givens and Richard Black, who currently serve as President, Chairman and CEO, respectively, acquired ECRM.

Continued research and development in optics, imaging, and electromechanical technology led to several successful imagesetter product lines in the 1990's, including the ScriptSetter VR, KnockOut, Mako and Stingray series.

In 1996 ECRM acquired Holotek Ltd., of Rochester, NY, an innovator of holographic scanning components and holder of 15 U.S. patents. Holotek's high-quality scanning components and subsystems have become important ingredients in ECRM's ability to deliver highly reliable, high-resolution imaging solutions for graphic arts and publishing applications. ECRM engineering and Holotek technology have propelled the company to the leading edge of laser-based optical technology, including violet, red & green laser optical systems.

More recently ECRM has developed visible-light and thermal platemakers, including the Mako CTP and DesertCat families of platesetters. ECRM continues to apply its research and development to the need for reliable, high-value, computer-to-plate devices in the publishing and commercial graphic arts.

A Focus on Price/Value Leadership
Today, ECRM is focused on its vision to become the acknowledged worldwide price/value leader in providing imaging systems for the commercial printing and publishing markets. A major step in achieving this vision was the acquisition of the exclusive rights to the technology of Optronics International Corporation in 2000. Optronics, one of the companies in the worldwide Fong Brothers group of graphic arts and printing companies, had developed high quality thermal imaging and proofing technologies, which became a significant addition to ECRM's portfolio of technologies. The acquisition of Optronics' technology also brought market-savvy international graphic arts entrepreneur Tony Fong to vice chairmanship of the ECRM Board of Directors.

ECRM is dedicated to satisfying customers by developing, manufacturing and marketing reliable, precise, state-of-the-art systems at highly competitive prices, capitalizing on rich research and development resources, partnerships with other technology developers, and well-integrated ISO 9001-registered quality management.
