AGFA Careers & Info

Current CEO: Christian Reinaudo

Status: Active

With its three business groups - AGFA Materials, AGFA HealthCare, and AGFA Graphics – AGFA-Gevaerta services the healthcare and printing industries with a wide variety of digital and analog imaging systems, as well as IT solutions.

Originally a dye and stain manufacturer, the company was founded in 1867 Rummelsburg (now a borough of Berlin) by Paul Mendelssohn Bartholdy and Carl Alexander von Martius as "Aktien-Gesellschaft für Anilin-Fabrikation" (AGFA). Towards the end of the 19th century, that company teamed with a Belgian paper manufacturer, "L. Gevaert & Cie," to create newer brands of photo products.

In their expansion, AGFA improved on its photographic imaging while Gevaert developed the first series of X-ray films. By the 1960's, the companies officially merged after a lengthy negotiation. By the 1990's, AGFA had undergone the inevitable switch from analog to digital, all the while continuing to expand its presence in graphics and healthcare, creating many new AGFA careers. By 2000, AGFA's first shares were introduced on the European stock market.

After selling off its photographic business in 2004 to AgfaPhoto, the company now directs its efforts on its three business-to-business groups:

- Graphics: This division spearheads research on printing, mainly using industrial inkjet, as well as prepress systems, software, and digital proofing. It's constantly upgrading its inkjet portfolio, and various acquisitions (Gandi Innovations, Harold M. Pitman, etc.) have kept the technology up-to-date.

- Healthcare: 50% of all hospitals in the world are part of the AGFA culture, using the company's imaging systems, so this branch is always working to maintain the most effective digital imaging solutions. AGFA HealthCare works directly with individual hospitals to come up with digital X-ray solutions for any requirements; it promotes technological advances in chemistry, cardiology, and radiology, and employs organic materials in its research.

- Materials: Working directly with AGFA Graphics and HealthCare, this branch makes film-based consumables. It also works for motion picture and sound recording companies, creating the master versions on which movies are printed, including film and microfilm. Also encompassed by the Materials outfit are solutions for circuit boards, passports, touch screens, aerial photography, and thermal printing.

Although headquartered in Mortsel, Belgium, the company has locations around the world: the US, France, Italy, Germany, China, and Canada. It operates through forty sales organizations, along with independent distributors, representatives, and agents. Those working at AGFA and receiving AGFA benefits total just under 12,000.
