FUJIFILM investments in inkjet ink manufacturing plant


To accelerate the growth of its global inkjet business, FUJIFILM Imaging Colorants Inc, a US subsidiary of FUJIFILM Corporation, will construct a new production plant for pigment dispersions, which is a colorant for water-based pigment inkjet inks. Construction will start in April 2021 and is scheduled for completion by 2022. The investment for this construction is approximately US$19 million. These days, applications for inkjet are expanding. In particular, there is a growing need to use water-based pigment inkjet inks, which have low environmental impact. By adding the new production plant for pigment dispersions (the main colorant in water-based pigment inkjet inks), FUJIFILM will be able to produce consistent, fully-featured water-based pigment inkjet inks built with FUJIFILM’s own core dispersion technology
