Enfocus Software acquired by Artwork Systems
Will maintain own name, identity

Executives at Enfocus Software, Inc., developers of PitStop, a popular PDF editing and preflight tool for Adobe Acrobat 4.0, announced that the company has been acquired by Artwork Systems. Both companies are based in Ghent, Belgium, and have international offices. Artwork Systems is a leading worldwide supplier of professional pre-press software solutions.

According to Enfocus' CEO Peter Camps, the two companies have "shared a vision of providing publishing software tools and solutions on mainstream platforms." Camp says Enfocus will maintain its own name and identity, and will function as an independent business unit within the new parent company.

"Under the guidance of our new shareholder, we will continue to determine our own business strategy, marketing model, product direction, company culture and so forth," he says. "After all, while many synergies exist, Enfocus' low-cost products and Artwork's high-end solutions require a very different market approach."

The companies will hold a joint press conference at the DRUPA conference in Germany later this month.
