Going for Gold!
We might not yet have achieved an elusive gold at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, but being a South Korean company we are proud of how it is portraying the country of our headquarters. The home of Samsung, LG Electronics and Hyundai!
From our perspective our business was established in 1992 by Kwang Chung – who is also still our current CEO and a shareholder – with the motto “today’s technology is never good enough for us”. From our original beginnings in South Korea we have morphed from being a desktop printer inks company, into large-format inkjet printer inks and media development in 2000, moving into large-format UV printer manufacturing in 2006 with the first Jetrix models. And now we are celebrating 15 years in UK and Europe with a dedicated European office in Witney, Oxfordshire!
Just like the excitement and promise of the Olympics, InkTec are working hard on future innovations particularly looking at the industrial market. As Joey Kim, Managing Director of InkTec here in the UK and Europe says:
“We have a synergy in that we manufacture inkjet ink and hardware and we’re developing products across the board, but the industrial market is where we hope to enlarge our business territory most. It’s a new market for us so it will grow fastest.
“We want to bring inkjet technologies to more industrial operations that were dominated by screen and offset printing. We are already working with companies in Korea, such as LG, Samsung, Posco, installing machines on their factory lines to improve their productivity.
