Toyo Ink expands inkjet ink capacity in France

April 19, 2022

Toyo Ink Europe Specialty Chemicals, a member of the Japan-based specialty chemicals multinational Toyo Ink Group, announced today that it has started operations of an all-new EUR13-million production facility for inkjet inks at its manufacturing complex in Oissel in northern France. With a focus on operational efficiency, the modern, 1,400-square-meter factory has been fitted with advanced automation equipment and ink manufacturing systems for increased process and quality control. The new fully automated site is expected to reinforce the company’s leading position in the global digital sector, in particular in the label, interior décor and corrugated markets.

The use of digital technology continues to grow as manufacturers look to appeal to regional interests with product variations. Digital technology gives manufacturers the flexibility of shorter production runs and the ability to customize products. In addition, new breakthroughs in materials and ink processing technology have elevated the image quality on digital presses and expanded application areas, continuously driving innovation to meet the needs of the industry.

“Inkjet is a strategic segment for Toyo Ink, and the investment in a new dedicated facility in Oissel demonstrates our commitment to the digital sector,” commented Vincent Guillaud, marketing director of Toyo Ink Europe Specialty Chemicals. “The new factory reinforces our capability to support our customers with a stable supply of highly reliable inks as well as pigments and their dispersions created with our unique dispersion technology. Our global research team has made strides in the design of innovative pigments and new dispersion processing technology needed to ensure the production of UV and water-based inkjet inks of the highest quality. Together with our customers, we will continue to innovate and develop products that continue to meet the future needs of the digital print industry.”
