Expert manufacturing for precision inkjet
High quality inks and dispersions – all delivered through manufacturing excellence and supply chain efficiency.
Manufactured to specification with reliability and precision
The ink you choose plays an essential part in the success of your print system. For a quality ink, you need a specialist manufacturer.
Because our sole purpose is inkjet inks and dispersions, our promise is to deliver the highest quality products that will meet your precise performance specifications.
We are experienced in supplying all kinds of inkjet ink, in all kinds of volumes. So, we know what it takes to meet even the most demanding requirements when it comes to reliability, speed-to-market and cost effectiveness.
And the strength of Fujifilm’s manufacturing infrastructure and supply chain means you can depend on us to deliver you a continuous, uninterrupted global supply.
Following the recent commissioning of our new RxD inkjet dispersions facility in USA, Scott MacMillan, Group Operations Director (now COO), explains how Fujifilm ensures consistent quality across its global manufacturing sites.
Quality and consistency
Renowned for pursuing the highest quality standards, our manufacturing is underpinned by ISO 9001-compliant Quality Assurance Systems to make sure our products always meet the specification.
At every step of the manufacturing process we employ stringent quality control procedures to monitor the quality and consistency of our ink products, from initial formulation transfer through to final batch testing. And we use the latest analytical methodology and equipment to control quality at a molecular level, from raw materials through to finished product.
Secure, worldwide supply
It doesn’t matter where you are in the world, each of our manufacturing sites ship to 86 countries worldwide. And, thanks to the length of time we have been in this industry, we have also built up a solid supply infrastructure, underpinned by our long-standing supplier relationships.
All this means you can be 100% confident you will have a secure and consistent supply of inkjet products whenever you order from us.
Investment in infrastructure
Our large scale manufacturing facilities between the USA and UK produce up to 27 million litres of inkjet ink each year, and we continue to expand our global dispersion manufacturing capacity.
We invested $47 million in the expansion of our inkjet dispersion manufacturing capabilities in the USA. It is part of our commitment to meeting the growing demand for new applications with aqueous inkjet inks and supporting our global customer base.
Investing in our people
Our highly-skilled manufacturing technicians have flexible, multi-processing skills and are supported with continuous operational improvement.
Progressing our processes
