New facility for INX
INX International UK officials are set to host an opening event at its new manufacturing facility in Heywood, England, on 16 April. The largest dedicated two-piece ink structure outside the United States reflects the company’s effort to accommodate expanded business in the beer and beverage can market throughout Europe and the Middle East.
“This new facility, along with our site in Charlotte, North Carolina, shows our long term commitment to the metal decorating industry and our customers globally. It has been an important part of our company’s business for over 50 years,” says Rick Clendenning, President and CEO of INX International Ink Co.
INX broke ground on the new complex in March 2012. At 40,000 square-feet, it is 75% larger than the building it replaces in Rochdale. Equipped with energy saving technology, the Heywood facility features ink-producing equipment for two-piece metal decorating inks.
The company has future plans to manufacture three-piece metal decorating inks at this location.
