Drytac Corporation has acquired Advanced Finishing Solutions (AFS), the OEM provider and distributor of aqueous/UV-curable coating machines and liquid coatings. AFS offers a line of aqueous and UV coating equipment, with formats ranging from 3.2 M (10.5 ft) and smaller. The company markets its products under such trade names as Versa-Coater, PhotoMate, PressMate and DocuMate UV, Cyclone UV, AFC Liquid Coaters, EnduraCoat and InstaCure liquid coatings

"The liquid coater line enhances our position as a one stop post print finishing resource for the graphics and display markets," says Marc Oosterhuis, president of the Drytac Group. "It will also allow us to expand into markets such as screen printing and on-demand printing."

Jim Tatum, founder and former owner of AFS, will continue to head up the liquid products division for Drytac. "Drytac and AFS share a similar long term vision," says Tatum. "This move allows us to maintain our current level of customer service as Drytac’s global infrastructure extends our geographic reach."
