RivTec was set up in 2001 by Paul Flynn, our managing director.

We can provide you with expertise in three areas:

  1. Unique Codes – generating unique codes and getting them on to your products
  2. Coding & Marking Assurance (CMA) – providing software to control and monitor your production line printers
  3. Machine Vision (MV) – automating your production lines with image-­‐based inspection systems, which are better than human inspection



We provide three pieces of equipment to generate unique codes – the ProGen 125, the uFeeder (micro Feeder) and the ARCC. CMA is provided by our JetSet software; and MV is provided by industry standard software. Our aims are straightforward:

  • To provide premium bespoke products – which we customise for you
  • To make things as simple as possible for you
  • To provide support when you need it – as quickly as we can

As you know, unique codes are a great way to track your products, and they can also be used for promotional and loyalty purposes. We’re proud to work with leading companies in Ireland, the UK, continental Europe and Australia – including Walkers, Diageo and Heineken.
