Toyo Ink America LLC recently announced it has relocated its headquarters to 1225 N. Michael Drive in Wood Dale, IL. The roughly 109,000-sq-ft facility boosts the company’s production and technical support capability with room for new equipment, an expanded R&D laboratory, and an increase in sales and technical staff. More than double the size of the company’s former headquarters in Addison, IL, the new building devotes nearly half its floor space to color matching, ink formulation and production purposes. The relocation reportedly provides Toyo Ink with the resources necessary to respond to its increasing customer base and immediate need to bring customized packaging and printing solutions to the global marketplace.
“Simply put, we outgrew our previous site,” said John Copeland, president and COO. “As our customer base continues to expand in North and South America, a more spacious and versatile work space was needed in order to better support our customers, as well as facilitate our future growth.”
In line with its regional growth strategy, Toyo Ink America is reportedly devoting greater resources to ramping up its R&D and manufacturing capability for the development of packaging and printing inks, UV coatings, and adhesives and other specialty polymers. With the Toyo Ink Group’s establishment of a sales branch in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and its acquisition of Fluid Ink Technology’s flexographic, gravure, and ultraviolet product assets, both of which occurred in 2010, the increased demand for these solutions has prompted the company to boost its production and development capability in North America.
