DIC Corporation New Printing Inks Production Facility China DIC Corporation announces that wholly owned subsidiary Nantong DIC Color, based in Nantong, Jiangsu Province, in the People’s Republic of China (PRC), has commenced construction of a new printing inks production facility in the southern area of the Nantong Economic and Technological Development Area (NETDA).

New Cutting-edge Design for Raw Materials Preparation

The principal products to be produced include offset inks, gravure inks, flexo inks and others. The new facility is scheduled to begin production in 2025, after which Nantong DIC Color will shutter its existing production facility in NETDA’s northern area.

The design concept incorporated throughout DIC Nantong Color’s new production facility emphasizes the streamlining of production processes and ancillary equipment. On the production floor for the facility’s core liquid inks, for example, plans are to incorporate cutting-edge design for raw materials preparation and filling processes, as well as to automate production lines.

Utility systems will employ the latest motors, air conditioners and lighting and other equipment to boost energy savings across the entire facility and to increase production efficiency, thereby strengthening cost competitiveness.

With the aim of establishing a robust foundation as the PRC’s leading comprehensive printing inks manufacturer, the DIC Group is building a three-pronged production network comprising bases in the eastern, southern and north or northeastern parts of the country.

Nantong DIC Color’s new production facility will serve as the production hub of the eastern base. For certain products, the facility will also serve as the mother plant for the entire country.
