The 2230sqm (24,000 sq foot) facility is INX International’s first complex in South America since acquiring Creative Inx in December 2016. The company will use the new Itatiba, Brazil, plant to produce two-piece metal decorating inks.
Guilherme Ribeiro, Financial and Administration Director for Creative INX said, ‘We are very proud to start our new operation in South America. We are upholding the responsibility of providing excellent products and service that represent the INX brand. With this new plant, we will be able to provide better service to our local customers and expand our business in South America.’
‘Itatiba is the heart of Sao Paulo state, which is responsible for 32 percent of Brazil’s GDP,’ said Ribeiro. ‘With this facility, we are located between two international airports and are not far from the biggest container port of South America in Santos. Our main customers also have plants located within two hours from us. We have installed high-performance milling and grinding equipment, as well as dust collectors, ex-proof mixers and press-outs, electrical forklifts and more. All of this equipment is in accordance with INX global safety regulations, which are at high levels and exceed Brazilian standards.’
