Here comes the Sun
As the UK bathes in unseasonably glorious weather, CanTech International continued its quest for sun with a recent visit to Sun Chemical’s global headquarters for metal decorating inks in Bilbao, Spain.
You’ll be able to read about my visit to Bilbao in our September issue, where I was able to discuss the company’s 200-year anniversary, the recent acquisition of PPG’s Metal Deco Ink Business and its global footprint when it comes to the metal packaging market.
It was my first visit to an ink facility, and it was certainly an eye-opening and fascinating experience. So too was my first experience to Bilbao, the Basque capital. The city doesn’t necessarily cultivate pages in the various tourist guide books, but from my limited time there, I can say that you’ll struggle to do better if looking for a city break with good food and wine, and nearby countryside and beach options.
