Schaumburg, IL – October 5, 2018 – INX International Ink Co., the industry leader in metal decorating ink technology, recently opened a new plant in Itatiba, Brazil to produce 2-piece metal decorating inks. Located in the state of Sao Paulo, the 24,000 square-foot facility is its first new complex in South America since Creative INX was acquired in December 2016 and is designed to manufacture approximately nine million pounds of product annually.
“We are very proud to start our new operation in South America. We are holding to the responsibility of providing excellent products and service that represent the INX brand,” said Guilherme Ribeiro, Financial and Administration Director for Creative INX. “With this new plant, we will be able to provide better service to our local customers and expand our business in South America.”
The new facility opened last month after construction was completed. Creative INX entered a 15-year lease agreement with an option on another 25,000 square-feet of space on land adjacent to the property. General Manager Luis Eduardo Ribeiro oversees 28 employees at the centrally located plant that was built with customers in mind.
“Itatiba is the heart of Sao Paulo state, which is responsible for 32 percent of Brazil’s GDP,” remarked Guilherme Ribeiro. “With this facility, we are located between two international airports and are not far from the biggest container port of South America in Santos. Our main customers also have plants located within two hours from us.”
Ribeiro said the facility’s new equipment is state-of-the-art and was implemented with safety in mind.
“We have installed high performance milling and grinding equipment, as well as dust collectors, ex-proof mixers and press-outs, electrical forklifts and more. All of this equipment is in accordance with INX global safety regulations, which are at high levels and exceed Brazilian standards.”
