Ferro Corp. recently announced it has completed several investments to enhance its position as a leading producer of pigmented inks used in digital printing processes for ceramic tile decoration. The company has completed the installation of manufacturing technologies at its facilities in Villagran, Mexico, to service the Latin American and U.S. market; and in Suzhou, China, to serve tile manufacturers throughout Asia. In addition, the company has added inks blending and packing operations at its facility in Saraburi, Thailand.

Technical and design support operations also have been added in Villagran and Suzhou, which can assist manufacturers in optimizing their digital printing processes using Ferro’s ink products. In addition, Ferro recently commissioned an inks laboratory in Foshan, China.

“We are planning additional capacity and product development activities to mirror the strong growth trends in inkjet decoration of ceramic tile,” said Peter Thomas, vice president of the Polymer and Ceramic Engineered Materials Group. “Our growing, global customer base relies on us for localized support, from design through production, and we’re positioning to deliver on our customers’ needs through innovative products, as well as expert design and applications support.”
