ImTech, an inkjet solutions company, was founded in Corvallis, Oregon in 1998 by two engineers with a passion for innovation. Both came from long careers at Hewlett-Packard where they led the release of many products including inkjet printers, ink cartridges, calculators, portable computers and peripherals. The founders bring a depth of experience in product and system design, analysis and testing, ink and substrate compatibility research, and high and low volume manufacturing.
