Fujifilm Imaging Colorants (New Castle, DE) announced that its parent company Fujifilm will invest $28 million to build a new facility in New Castle, DE for the production of aqueous inkjet dispersions.
The investment will double Fujifilm’s production capacity of pigment dispersions in the US, the company said in a release. Construction of the facility, which adds 11,000 sq. ft. of new operational space to the Delaware site, began this month and is expected to be operational by summer 2023.
Last year, Fujifilm announced the construction of its first dispersion manufacturing facility in the US, which is on schedule to be commissioned by the spring. This latest announcement brings the company’s total investment to more than $47 million in new production capacity of pigment dispersions at the Delaware site.
To support the increase in manufacturing output across the site, Fujifilm Imaging Colorants will add 30 positions in quality, engineering, production and administrative roles by the end of 2023 to support operations across both facilities.
Fujifilm’s pigment dispersion products use a proprietary “cross-linking technology to lock each pigment particle in a secure polymer cage, resulting in a highly stable dispersion,” the company said. Fujifilm supplies aqueous inks to digital printer manufacturers and pigment dispersions to ink formulators.
