Toyo Ink America LLC recently announced it has expanded production of liquid and ultraviolet (UV) inks for packaging applications in the North America region. The company recently relocated its headquarters to a larger facility in Wood Dale, IL. The roughly 109,000-sq-ft facility reportedly boosts the company’s production, development, and technical support capability by affording room for new equipment, an expanded R&D laboratory, and an increase in sales and technical staff. At the new site, Toyo Ink America plans to produce and develop water- and solvent-based liquid inks, offset and UV inks, and coatings, primarily targeting the flexible packaging, folding carton, bag, foil, and label printing markets.

“The relocation to a larger facility is the latest commitment we’ve made in leveraging our manufacturing, development and support expertise to grow our packaging business in the Americas,” said John Copeland, president and COO. “It provides us with the resources necessary to respond to our increasing customer base in the Americas and immediate need to bring our growing lineup of customized packaging and commercial print solutions to the global marketplace.”
