Comments: For many ink manufacturers, 2009 was a challenging year and Encres Dubuit, a Mitry Cedex, France–based UV screen and digital ink specialist, did suffer as well. Sales declined slightly from €19.9 million to €19.2 million, with domestic sales declining from €9.5 million to €7.8 million. The company enjoyed sales growth in South America to €8 million, from €7.3M, and is now the largest market for Encres Dubuit. UV and solvent-based inks offered best results.

The company enjoys a strong performance in overseas markets, with approximately 60 percent of sales coming from its four subsidiaries –Tintas Dubuit in Spain, Dubuit Canada, Dubuit Color in Brazil and Dubuit Shanghai. In 2008, in Brazil, Dubuit Color and Techno Paint merged to create Dubuit Paint.

The company emphasizes R&D for markets such as cell phones, smart cards and optical discs, as well as digital inks. The company most recently introduced its Evolution series of digital inks and UV Uviglass inks for glass applications.
