Extensis was founded in 1993 in Portland, Oregon, to help remove those barriers that held back our customers’ creativity. We began our journey by focusing on the needs of the creative community on the Apple Macintosh platform, through plug-ins that extended the usefulness and capabilities of Adobe and Quark products.
In 2005, Extensis moved to focus exclusively on font management and digital asset management technologies and sold its plug-in line of products. The company continued to innovate and was awarded over 20 font patents. Now growing at a rapid clip, Extensis expanded its global presence into the U.K., France, Germany, and Australia, with 29 patents.
In 2018 Extensis merged with sister company LizardTech — also owned by Celartem — bringing LizardTech’s state-of-the-art software solutions for compressing and distributing massive, high-resolution geospatial data into Extensis’ suite of products. Customers of Extensis and LizardTech now have access to additional solutions for maximizing the value of their digital assets.
