Siegwerk to build blending centre in Bangladesh

Siegwerk, a supplier of printing inks for packaging applications and labels, is to open a new blending centre in the Dhaka region, Bangladesh.

Siegwerk, a supplier of printing inks for packaging applications and labels, is to open a new blending centre in the Dhaka region, Bangladesh.

The blending centre will enable the company to cater to the overall Asian region and bolster its business in Bangladesh, where it has been supplying inks since the mid-1990s.

Expected to begin operations in the fourth quarter of this year, the new facility is expected to reduce lead time and eliminate the need to import inks from Siegwerk’s plant in India.

The company noted that the Dhaka facility will offer a completely toluene-free environment as part of its commitment to not use toluene or any other product containing the substance as a raw material.

All inks produced from the facility will be compliant with global regulatory requirements to ensure safety for end-use in packaging applications.

Siegwerk Bangladesh director Ashish Pradhan said: “We have established a very good customer base with sustainable growth in Bangladesh.

“The new blending centre will enable us to make our products and solutions even more accessible to local customers and enhance our service capabilities.”

“We now want to get closer to our customers, supporting them more effectively with individually formulated ink solutions, which match their local printing requirements.”

The company will use the Dhaka plant to blend solvent and water-based inks, as well as UV and conventional offset inks.

Pradhan added: “The new blending centre will enable us to make our products and solutions even more accessible to local customers and enhance our service capabilities across the country, while strengthening our leadership position.”

In December, Siegwerk introduced high-sensitivity K-Supply UV inks for European, Middle Eastern, and African markets.

Inks are developed in collaboration with Japanese printing presses manufacturer Komori.
