HP has added a new 11,000-square-metre (118,000 square feet) toner manufacturing plant in Kiryat Gat, Israel, which will produce ink for the company’s new generation of HP Indigo presses (10000 series) introduced in May 2012.


The new HP Indigo plant is the first industrial building in Israel and first HP manufacturing facility worldwide built to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards. Recognized as a global standard for efficient buildings, LEED Certification considers issues like sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality.



With the addition of the new facility, HP Indigo’s Kiryat Gat campus now includes 56,000 square metres (603,000 square feet) of building space. This campus serves as HP Indigo’s centre for training and for final application testing and qualification of each press before shipment. HP Indigo also manufactures its toner, commonly referred to by the company as liquid ink, at its facility in Singapore.
 
"HP Indigo's customers constantly demand that we push the boundaries and innovate in our product portfolio as well as in our manufacturing operations," said Alon Bar-Shany, VP and GM, Indigo Division, HP. "With an additional plant supplying ink for the rapid ramp-up of our new family of Indigo presses, we can support our customers in growing their businesses and increasing their profitability in the highly competitive printing market."
 
Inks produced at the new plant will begin shipping with the HP Indigo 10000 (29.5 x 20.9 inches) press, which have been installed for beta-testing purposes at printing companies in the United States, Europe and Middle East General commercial availability of the new Indigo series is scheduled for the spring of 2013.
