Bordeaux Digital PrintInk Ltd, a developer and provider of inkjet inks for the graphic arts industry, today announced that its subsidiary Bordeaux Digital Inc., has opened its first R&D and manufacturing facility in the US. The facility marks Bordeaux's first manufacturing site beyond Israel and will operate alongside the existing factory to offer an expanded portfolio of UV curable inks, liquid laminates and solvent inks to many of the global markets Bordeaux currently serves, or expects to serve, in the future.
The new factory will provide Bordeaux with a major East Coast physical presence to support Bordeaux Inc. in Santa Clara, California. A new logistics and service centre will start to operate at the facility in the future to provide fast and efficient support for customers in the East Coast and also Bordeaux's customers in the US and Latin America.
The US factory's core products include a complete product line of liquid laminates (clear coatings) and UV curable inks for most leading wide and super wide digital printer brands such as HP™, Vutek™, Nur™, Durst™ and Agfa™ including inks fully compatible with the Jeti™ printer family. The UV inks are formulated to yield a wider colour gamut and exhibit excellent flexibility and superior adhesion on a variety of materials opening many new markets for Bordeaux. These specially formulated inks guarantee that the printed product, on roll stock and rigid substrate, does not peel or flake when cut by a machine. The coatings are formulated for sign, vehicle & fleet graphics as well as a broad range of other display and specialty graphic applications.
"We are very excited about this new addition to Bordeaux which marks a new phase of business growth for the company following several years of strong sales worldwide," said Moshe Zach, the CEO and President of Bordeaux Digital PrintInk. "We are strongly committed to quality, innovation and service and are more and more recognised as a leading brand, a trendsetter and an innovator of new types of inks for wide format printers. I am confident that the US factory and logistics centre will allow us to provide more solutions, full customer support, further improve our competitive positioning, increase operational efficiencies and make it easier to meet the delivery and cost standards desired by our dealers and customers in the US and Latin America."
