After breaking ground 15 months ago, INX International Ink has started to move into its new 63,000-square-foot facility in Lebanon, OH. The manufacturing site sits on 11 acres and will have approximately 38 employees producing several ink lines.
INX has announced a price increase effective September 1, 2010 because raw material supply shortages are continuing to have a serious effect on printing ink production. Company President Rick Clendenning states the economic downturn in 2008 caused many of the printing ink industry’s raw material suppliers to reduce operating capacity. Several suppliers permanently shut down manufacturing plants.
INX International Ink Co. today announced that Angelo Possemato has joined the company as a Director of National Accounts. Possemato has more than 25 years of experience in the industry and will oversee corporate national accounts in his new sales management role. He is based in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
