Today, the Doneck Network has seven locations in addition to its headquarters, with a total of 220 employees.
The Doneck units in England, Spain, Hungary, Poland, Germany, Chile and Italy have state-of-the-art automatic dispensing systems and in some cases production plants, ink laboratories and local technical sales teams as well as international specialists who advise and serve customers throughout Europe and in South America.
"We are presenting ourselves to our customers according to the current trends with regard to the environment, product safety and sustainability," said Arndt Breitbach, managing director of the Doneck Network. "We have been producing our water-based and solvent-based printing inks in a climate-neutral way since 2018.
"We have established this and many other projects in our environmental program 'We think green,'" Breitbach continued. "This includes topics such as waste separation, environmentally friendly vehicle fleets, reusable instead of disposable, water dispensers for all employees and further environmentally friendly ideas."
Doneck has a wide product portfolio of compostable water-based and solvent-based printing inks and varnishes for different applications in the food packaging sector.
The printing inks are certified in accordance with the EN 13432 standard and according to the "OK Compost Industrial" and "OK Compost Home."
In the water-based printing inks segment, Doneck offers its customers products made from a high proportion of renewable raw materials for different paper and cardboard applications.
In addition, Doneck has expanded its product portfolio in the solvent-based printing inks area. Customers can now obtain haptic varnishes with soft touch and paper touch as well as particularly opaque white types for reverse printing and laminates.
Also, trade fair visitors can get information on the "Euromix" automatic dispensing system at the Doneck booth. This symbiosis of an automatic dispensing system combined with highly pigmented ink concentrates has become an essential part of modern-day packaging printing. Doneck customers thus benefit from a special, inspiring and "different" service package. Worldwide, the Doneck Network has 150 dispensing systems in use in both the water-based and solvent-based inks.
"With our appearance this year we want to face the challenges of the packaging industry, which is under great pressure, with a host of small and large innovations in the existing printing ink systems. Furthermore, projects such as mono-material laminates and the INKjet area are subject to constant development in our laboratories," said Edgar Becker, managing director sales.
