Gravotech is the leader in engraving, marking and cutting solutions, serving clients in 100+ countries with its three industrial platforms in the US, France and China.
MML backed Gérard and his team’s vision for Gravotech’s growth. The roadmap of the company is to further develop its presence in key geographies (such as the US and China), with development of innovative products including laser technology, the improvement of industrial effectiveness and targeted commercial efforts.
Gravotech's parent company, Gravograph, created the compact Pantograph machine that disrupted engraving in the USA in 1938. It has always been an international company. It is now present in 77 countries worldwide and has manufacturing facilities in France, the USA and China.
Gravotech products have multiple applications and without knowing it you are very likely to have various objects around you engraved by Gravotech equipment, laser or mechanical. Your watch might be personalized with a Gravotech machine. Several parts of your cars are engraved by Gravotech machines for traceability purpose. Signage of all kinds around you is also created with Gravotech solutions.
In 2018, we were looking for a partner to help us grow internationally. MML stood out as an obvious choice with a similar international culture and presence, both in Europe and the US. In addition, the partnership approach Henry-Louis and his team took resonated strongly with my team and I.
A lot has happened! The Group previously operated under a range of brands and companies; we have now consolidated all our operations under the Gravotech brand and simplified our corporate structure to enable us to operate a seamless customer experience, globally. In parallel we have continued to develop innovative new solutions including introducing new user-friendly software and interfaces. For these strategic projects MML has been an important sparring partner.
