INX expands West Chicago R&D complex
INX International Ink Co. has announced plans to expand its research & development complex in West Chicago, Illinois, US.
Rick Westrom, senior vice president of sourcing and R&D, said: “We have experienced sales growth and production in many areas, and a major reason for this expansion is our commitment to global digital efforts.
“A large portion is being dedicated to growing and supporting digital products across all product lines, as well as expanding our Energy Curable technologies.”
Westrom indicated the $7 million project construction would add 32,000 sq. ft to the facility.
When completed in July 2018, the facility will more than double its current space to 56,000 sq. ft and more chemists will be hired, the company says.
