INX International Ink Co. announced plans to build a new 62,000-square-foot facility in Lebanon, Ohio. The facility is to primarily focus on producing the company’s solvent ink packaging products. It is scheduled for completion in the fourth quarter of 2014, with an initial staff count of 33 employees.
The new building is to replace a smaller property INX currently operates about 25 miles away in Blue Ash, a suburb of Cincinnati. Besides solvent ink packaging products, INX will also manufacture three-piece metal decorating, UV/EB and some water-based flexographic ink products in Lebanon.
“Our team has worked diligently on this project for two years. When we evaluated our facilities and our ability to increase capacity and efficiencies, we determined the best way to service the market going forward was to construct a new plant,” stated John Hrdlick, COO of INX International. “The site in Lebanon is a terrific location with easy access to Interstate 71, and it provides us with an opportunity to expand the plant up to 90,000 square feet in the future.”
In addition to manufacturing space, INX plans to construct a laboratory for colour management and development, as well as for traditional quality control and testing purposes.
