Sun Chemical has named Cyngient a strategic distribution partner of its inks, coatings and other solutions for offset, narrow web tag and label (NWTL), commercial sheetfed and folding carton printers.
The new partnership aims to help Sun Chemical and Cyngient reach North American inks customers faster and more efficiently, they say, and jointly provide customers with technical and product support. Cyngient customers will now have access to Sun Chemical’s range of solutions for the marketplace that can be combined with many of Cyngient’s specialties, including special effects, soft touch and tactile coatings, cold foil solutions, and in-mold products.
With over 100 years of combined experience, Cyngient is a full-service provider of inks, coatings, adhesives and custom-built solutions for the flexographic and commercial printing industries.
“Cyngient is much more than a distributor; they are a partner that develops relationships, provides technical service, does their own lab work and will serve as an extension of our technological capabilities,” said Dennis Sweet, Vice President – Commercial, Rycoline and Distributors, North American Inks. “Combining Sun Chemical’s technology and capabilities with Cyngient’s service to customers brings together the best of both worlds.”
Sun Chemical, a member of the DIC group, is a producer of printing inks, coatings and supplies, pigments, polymers, liquid compounds, solid compounds, and application materials. Together with DIC, Sun Chemical has annual sales of more than US$7.5 billion and over 20,000 employees supporting customers around the world.
“Sun Chemical is a global leader with the world’s largest research and development center dedicated to printing ink technology,” said Andrew Wasserman, Managing Partner, Cyngient. “We are excited at Cyngient to be a partner with Sun Chemical. We believe with this combined partnership, Cyngient can deliver leading edge ink technology, enhanced on-site training, along with delivering the highest level of service. This is truly a game changer for Cyngient and our customers.”
