Inks will continue to use Vutek and Inkware current formulations.
EFI and Nazdar have entered into an agreement in which Nazdar will manufacture EFI’s Vutek and Inkware solvent inks. The inks will continue to use Vutek and Inkware current formulations, and will offer the same warranty coverage.
“Nazdar has been a trusted partner of EFI for many years, and we are thrilled to be expanding our relationship with a company that has such a deep knowledge of solvent-based digital ink manufacturing,” says Scott Schinlever, vice president and general manager of EFI’s ink business. “EFI selected Nazdar to be their manufacturing partner due to their commitment to quality, consistency, and reliability, which are cornerstones of EFI inks.”
Nazdar has been producing inks and coatings since 1922, and for the digital printing industry since 1998.
“Nazdar is pleased to have this opportunity to expand our relationship with EFI,” says Richard Bowles, vice president and general manager of Nazdar’s inks and coatings division. “Nazdar can focus on what we do best–manufacturing excellent digital inks to the exacting standards developed by Vutek and Inkware.”
EFI expects to cease ink manufacturing at its Meredith, New Hampshire facility, as it consolidates its ink business. The company will be manufacturing its UV-based and specialty digital inks at its facility in Ypsilanti, Michigan.
