ACTEGA Kelstar and ACTEGA WIT have opened a joint NAFTA innovation laboratory in Cinnaminson, NJ, to accommodate ACTEGA Kelstar’s R&D and technical service labs, and to house the newly formed Innovation Team.

“Our brand new, state-of-the-art lab facility emphasizes our continued commitment to superior products and services for the printing industry,” said Jim Wittig, vice president of Innovation, who will lead the team. “Due to the continuous flow of innovative products, as well as improved quality control, the ACTEGA Graphic Arts customers will significantly benefit.”

Wittig will be accompanied by John Arnold, Ph.D., who adds knowledge and experience in the formulating of UV-curable coatings and adhesives. The Innovation Team will focus on the development of cutting-edge technologies for both ACETGA WIT and ACTEGA Kelstar customers.

Nearly $1 billion has been invested in the lab, which will accommodate up to 14 chemists and technicians.
