Cabot Corporation To Expand Inkjet Facility in Haverhill, Mass.
New Capacity to Support Growth in Digital Printing Applications
Next generation digital printing delivers unique benefits over analog printing including, greater design customization, opportunity to improve speed to market, and sustainability advantages through shorter production runs and less waste. Aqueous ink technology is the technology of choice to enable the transition from analog to digital printing in commercial and packaging applications. Cabot’s new inkjet capacity will provide a reliable global supply to support the increasing need for inkjet solutions driven by the shift to digital printing.
“As a global leader in inkjet aqueous dispersion with a broad portfolio of dispersion technologies, our investment will ensure we are able to meet the anticipated growth needs of the rapidly changing inkjet market today and in the future,” said
In addition to the expansion of the new production line, the facility recently underwent capital expansion projects including upgrades to manufacturing equipment and process technologies as part of the multi-year investment program. These upgrades enable enhanced operational efficiencies, a reduction in water usage and an increase in capacity to offer broader product portfolios for inkjet customers.
