Toyo Ink America relocates to larger facility

August 18, 2011

The new plant in Illinois has more than twice the area of its former headquarters.

Toyo Ink America, a member of the Toyo Ink Group, has relocated its headquarters to a more spacious location at 1225 N. Michael Drive in Wood Dale, IL, USA. The 109,000 square foot building boosts the company’s production and technical support areas by affording room for new equipment, an expanded R&D laboratory and an increase in sales and technical staff.

More than double the size of its former headquarters in Addison, IL, the new plant devotes nearly half its floor space to color matching, ink formulation and production purposes. By the end of August, Toyo Ink America expects to begin production of water and solvent-based liquid inks, offset and ultraviolet inks and coatings at the Wood Dale location.

“Simply put, we outgrew our previous site,” says John Copeland, president and COO of Toyo Ink America. “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.”

Toyo Ink America is 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 establishment of a sales branch in São 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 here in North America.
