Creo, now part of Eastman Kodak Company, was a Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada-based company involved in imaging and software technology for computer to plate and digital printing.[1] The name derives from the Latin creo, "I create."

Creo was acquired by Kodak on January 31, 2005.

Like its predecessor, its current incarnation, Kodak Graphics Communications Group manufactures printing plates, professional digital cameras, color and copydot scanning systems; inkjet, drop-on-demand, and digital halftone proofers; workflow management software; variable information workflow systems; and computer-to-film and computer-to-plate devices.

It had over 4,200 employees, 5 buildings in the Greater Vancouver area, with 3 in the Burnaby area and 2 facilities in Delta, BC. It was founded in 1983 by Dan Gelbart (who retired from Kodak in 2007) and Ken Spencer (who retired from Creo in the 1990s), and was initially a manufacturer of optical tape recorder (OTR) devices and a vendor of laser imaging engines to the printing industry. Amos Michelson was the CEO from 1995 until it was sold to Kodak in 2005. In 2000, it acquired the worldwide graphic arts operations of Scitex, based out of Israel. Therefore to date, there are still many Israeli employee in its Burnaby office.

Some of Creo's main products are Prinergy, Prinergy Evo and InSite, a prepress workflow and file processing system.
