Comments: The North American subsidiary of Royal Dutch Printing Ink Factories Van Son, Van Son Holland Ink is headquartered in Islandia, NY, and has operations in Chicago, Los Angeles and Miami. The Van Son group enjoyed a good year globally. The company was warmly received at drupa 2016. Its top line products - Supreme, The Ultimate and PrimeBIO - were successful in the market and expected to drive sales.
On the packaging side, Van Son is bringing its PrimeBIO technology to low migration inks. Based on the varnish and resin technology used in the vegetable oil-based PrimeBIO process series, Van Son R&D developed PrimePACK, a low migration ink with the same excellent printing characteristics as PrimeBIO. This new low migration ink is ISEGA-certified.
