Vancouver’s PDFTron has acquired California-based ActivePDF.

ActivePDF is a provider of high-volume and scalable server-side PDF automation components to 40% of Fortune 500 companies.

The deal builds upon PDFTron’s first acquisition of San Jose-based BCL Technologies just three months ago in March 2020, and marks another milestone in the company’s expansion following the $95 million growth investment led by Silversmith Capital Partners last year.

“ActivePDF is an extraordinary company with an amazing team and products,” said Catherine Andersz, PDFTron co-founder and CEO. “Combining PDFTron’s market-leading client-side technology and document SDKs with ActivePDF’s high-volume document automation and no-code/low-code developer solutions will create an end-to-end document technology platform expediting our vision of changing the way the world works with documents.”

With documents at the center of digital transformation, the ActivePDF acquisition positions PDFTron to play a greater role in helping enterprises accelerate change across every part of their business, to increase operational efficiency and differentiated customer experiences.

Some of ActivePDF’s notable customers include DocuSign, The US Department of Defense, Nationwide Insurance, PwC, Paychex and Barclays.
