Sakata Inx worldwide operations announced an agreement with the ownership group of Czech Republic-based Megaink Digital a.s., taking a majority interest in Megaink Digital a.s. The company will offer customers a broad spectrum of digital ink products and services for wide and super-wide format printing as a member of INX Digital, the digital arm of INX International Ink Co.
“We are delighted to join forces with an established, European-based leader in digital ink systems,” said INX International president and CEO Rick Clendenning. “Megaink Digital will strengthen our ability to service digital printing operations world-wide – particularly in rapidly growing areas such as Eastern Europe, as well as the Americas, and in Africa and the Middle East where Mega Digital has established a strong presence in just six years since the company was founded.
“Megaink Digital’s recent introduction of environmentally friendly BioMG inks – renewable resource-based inks – signifies further compatibility with our own ‘green’ product development and sustainability initiatives," Mr. Clendenning added. "Responsible environmental stewardship has been part of the culture of both our organizations, and it will continue to play an increased role moving forward.”
“This joint venture with INX International will be very beneficial to our rapidly expanding customer base – not only with additional distribution and support, but with added product development and related resources available through Sakata Inx," said Andrej Keblusek, managing director of Megaink Digital a.s.,
“Digital users have been highly receptive to our superior-quality products which are specially designed for virtually all OEM printers,” Avi Bukai, director of business development, added. “We anticipate even more rapid development of new products to meet emerging marketplace needs.”
