Comments: In December 2017, T&K Toka, Tokyo, Japan, the world’s seventh-largest ink manufacturer, acquired Royal Dutch Printing Ink Factories Van Son, Hilversum, The Netherlands. The acquisition included Royal Dutch Van Son’s North American subsidiary, Van Son Holland Ink.
Van Son Holland Ink’s core market is commercial sheetfed, which fits with T&K Toka’s expertise and focus on UV inks. The acquisition also provides T&K Toka with manufacturing capabilities in North America as well as Europe.
