We know the value of putting you in the middle of it all. Listening to ones customers is about the smartest thing you can do as a business. We come to work so that we can give you the best large format scanning experience in the World.

Who we are

At Contex, we all come to work because we want to create the best large format scanning experiences
in the world. We strive for perfection with every scanner we develop and produce.

When Contex was originally founded in 1923, the company designed and manufactured printing
machines, mechanical and electronic calculators and electrostatic copiers, which were sold worldwide
under the names Rex-Rotary and Gestetner. But the world changes – and so do we.

By the early 1980s, Contex had evolved into what it is today – the market leader in large format
scanning. Our long and diverse history has more than improved the scanning technology we use today –
it has helped improve millions of people’s workflow. That feels good and give us all the more reason to
do better than the day before. Every day.

At Contex we work all around the world from Japan to Denmark, where our headquarter is located right
outside of Copenhagen.

What we do

Contex makes large format scanning solutions; helping people around the world to share, store, and
enhance their paper plans and creative drawings digitized. Nearly all product/project ideas start with a
plain piece of paper. Sometime just a few, sometimes millions of paper documents need to be digitized
to save “already created plans”.

Saving valuable information from the past for the future processes is essential for the evolution of the
world. Think about that when seeing a city skyline, riding on a high-speed train, using electricity or when
taking a hot shower. Now you got a flavor of what millions of users are doing with our products and

Having the right tools for every job makes all the difference. Contex scanning solutions are designed to
have all the tools required to get the job done right. Don’t just copy, scan and print. Increase the value
of your originals by enhancing the quality and optimizing them for your specific tasks.

Our mission

We strive to be the global leader in the large format scanning industry built on a passion for technology and great customer experiences.

How do we plan on doing it?

  • providing the best imaging solutions for business partners around the world
  • continuously improving our business practices, products and services
  • creating superior financial returns for our partners
  • having a dedicated team sharing a passion for our business
