Chenbang Ink Company expands reach into Indian market with Caldron partnership

In the dynamic landscape of printing technology, innovation is the key, and big players like Chenbang Ink Company are at the forefront of providing cutting-edge solutions. Renowned for its high-quality inks catering to inkjet printers, Chenbang Ink Company, based in China, has recently made waves in the industry with its strategic partnership with Caldron, an Indian company specialises in groundbreaking printing solutions.


This milestone partnership marks a significant move for Chenbang Ink Company as it strategically ventures into the vast and burgeoning Indian market. Caldron, recognising the growing demand for premium inks for inkjet printers in India, has set up a state-of-the-art 25,000 sq ft factory at Greater Noida in Delhi-NCR. The facility is poised to play a crucial role in mixing and bottling inks tailored specifically for Indian customers.

One of the pivotal aspects of this collaboration is the meticulous selection of ink formulations to meet the diverse needs of the Indian market. Initially focusing on supplying solvents compatible with renowned printhead brands like Konica, Starfire, Polaris, Seiko, and XAAR as well as eco-solvent inks optimised for EPSON DX5/DX7 and I3200 printheads, Chenbang and Caldron aim to provide comprehensive solutions for various printing requirements.

“The choice to prioritise these specific printhead technologies underscores a commitment of our partnership, ensuring compatibility and performance excellence. By offering solvents and inks tailored for these printheads, our collaboration seeks to enhance print quality, durability, and overall efficiency, thereby meeting the evolving demands of Indian printers and businesses,” conveys Rajat Mitra, Director of Caldron Graphics.

Localised production & support

The establishment of Caldron’s manufacturing facility in Greater Noida not only signifies a commitment to serving the Indian market but also reflects the partners’ dedication to localised production and support. By having a local manufacturing presence, Chenbang and Caldron can ensure streamlined supply chain operations, faster response times, and enhanced customer service, ultimately bolstering their competitiveness in the region.

Chenbang Ink’s track record speaks volumes about its expertise and capabilities, with the company boasting an impressive production capacity of over 10 million liters of ink annually. This vast output underscores Chenbang’s commitment to meeting the ever-growing demands of the global inkjet printing market while maintaining stringent quality standards.

Diversification is a key strategy for Chenbang Ink, evident in its comprehensive product portfolio that encompasses Direct-to-Fabric (DTF) inks, sublimation inks, and water-based inks, among others. This wide array of ink solutions underscores the company’s versatility and adaptability to cater to various printing technologies and substrates, thereby addressing the diverse needs of its clientele.

Further expansion into UV portfolio

Moreover, the collaboration’s strategic roadmap includes plans for expanding into UV ink portfolios, further diversifying the range of solutions available to customers. UV printing technology has gained significant traction in various industries due to its versatility and ability to print on a wide array of substrates with exceptional precision and durability. By incorporating UV ink offerings into their portfolio, Chenbang and Caldron aim to tap into this growing segment and cater to the evolving needs of the Indian printing market.

This collaboration between Chenbang Ink Company and Caldron heralds a new chapter in the realm of printing solutions in India. With a focus on innovation, quality, and customer satisfaction, the partnership is poised to redefine standards and empower businesses across various sectors with superior printing capabilities.
