Inkjet digital printing specialist Neos is to move into new premises later this year, as the Italian manufacturer seeks to further its presence and penetration in Europe.

The company started operations two decades ago, initially focused on the market for inkjet digital printing of ceramics. Today, the Neos portfolio is focused on packaging and décor printing. Together with ink partner Inkgenio, specific systems are developed that use either water-based or UV LED technology.

The new state-of-the-art factory in Fiorano Modenese (MO) will be home to both Neos and Inkgenio. Covering 12,000sqm, the new factory incorporates research and development and production, ‘and gives us room for expansion for our fast growing business,’ commented Neos founder Vincenzo Palumbo. ‘Printers and inks can be produced in the same building, however, for the food market, a separate area is reserved to avoid contamination for inks serving the strictly regulated food-packaging-market.’

It is also compliant with modern sustainability standards, is powered by a park of solar panels on the roof and allows Neos to quadruple the output. The inauguration is scheduled for the second half of 2023.

In addition to investing in infrastructure, Neos has recently appointed Frank de Jonge as commercial director for both the press manufacturer and also Inkgenio.
