Procure the best ink technologies

How do you create quality ink formulations?  The right expertise, the right process, and the right technology.  Your team may have the know-how and the process, but without the right technologies, you will be one step behind the market. Do you have the right tools?

As see on iFormulate.biz and SpecialChem

My name is Terence Kenneth and I began my career in the ink industry in 1984 as a Chemist, in a small town in the south of England.

Over the last 30 years, I’ve worked hard testing different raw materials, processes and technologies to create the right formulations for industry leaders such as: Eckart, Kromacorp, Pemla, Rieger, Polytex Environmental.

Today, I have a team of Ink Specialists in England, France, Italy, U.S.A., Canada, Argentina, Brazil, South Africa, China, and India.  Together we create customized ink formulations that enable our clients to dramatically grow their portfolio.

After years of experience, I’ve developed a blueprint for how to successfully create high quality ink formulations.  This blueprint has worked for small, medium and large ink manufacturers and printers, to generate tens of thousands of dollars in new business from a single consultation with us.

When we work together, we will (1) discuss your plans and goals, (2) analyze your current raw materials/technology/market/objectives, and (3) create a customized ink formulation that best suits your needs and helps you reach your business goals.

So, are we the right company for you?  Well… If you are the Owner, President, Chemical Director or simply the person responsible for developing new ink formulations in your organization, then yes we are.

And I can assure you this:

  • If you need a new ink formulation to enter a new market, or improve your position in your existing market…
  • if you do not have the budget to run hundreds of tests without certainty of success…
  • And especially if you need results in days instead of weeks or months…

…then you are in the right place, and this is for you.
