Siegwerk plans to build a new Blending Center in Bangladesh to further strengthen its local footprint in South AsiaApril 11, 2019
With the construction of a new state-of-the-art Blending Center in Bangladesh, Siegwerk strengthens its local infrastructure while getting closer to its customers in the country.
The center is expected to start operation in the fourth quarter of 2019. With this expansion, the company significantly strengthens its domestic business in the country while extending its position across the overall Asian region.
Siegwerk has been supplying inks to printers in Bangladesh since the mid-nineties. “We have established a very good customer base with sustainable growth in Bangladesh. We now want to get closer to our customers supporting them more effectively with individually formulated ink solutions which match their local printing requirements,” says Ashish Pradhan, Director Siegwerk Bangladesh Limited. Presently, inks are imported from Siegwerk’s plant in India. Going forward, the new center will blend solvent & water-based inks, as well as UV and conventional offset inks directly in Bangladesh. “The new Blending Center will enable us to make our products and solutions even more accessible to local customers and enhance our service capabilities across the country, while strengthening our leadership position,” adds Pradhan. Subsequently, the company will be able to reduce lead times and provide local customers with the highest global technology expertise directly in their own country.
