Keeping in tradition with past shows, INX International Ink Co. conducted an International partners and distributors meeting during the Print ’13 conference. The two-day session was attended by nearly 30 international partners representing 12 countries from every continent.
After attending the show on September 9-10, international guests gathered for a general global meeting and heard various presentations from several INX executives at the Research & Development facility in West Chicago on September 11-12. Several guests also toured INX facilities in Charlotte, NC, and Edwardsville, KS, on September 13.
Jonathan Ellaby, Vice President of International Operations, welcomed the international guests on September 11 with an overview on the company’s recent developments. Updates on flexible packaging and solvent-based inks, 3-piece metal decorating and water-based inks, followed. Presentations on UV inks, the sheefed production line and 2-piece metal decorating were delivered on September 12 before Ellaby concluded the event.
“We find combining this event with the Print show is a tremendous opportunity for many of our partners,” said Ellaby. “It’s a great incentive for them to visit Chicago and have the opportunity to interact face-to-face with our team of specialists and technical service group. Several people also had the chance to travel to our other facilities for a close-up look at everything that is taking place within the company.”
