Toyo Ink Expands Colorants Business to Mexico

Already a presence in the U.S., Toyo Ink is about to start production in Mexico.

Japan’s Toyo Ink SC Holding Co., the parent of the Toyo Ink Group of companies, and its wholly-owned subsidiary LioChem, are expanding their plastic colorants manufacturing footprint in the Americas. Already a presence in the U.S. at Conyers, Ga., the company established a plastic colorant subsidiary—Toyo Ink Mexico S.A. de C.V. last November, in Guadalajara, Mexico. Production is slated to start in April 2016.

Demand for color masterbatches for use in packaging, containers, and automotive interiors and exterior has been on the rise in Mexico’s growing manufacturing sector. The new facility is expected to allow the company to service and supply customers throughout the Americas with greater speed and flexibility. It houses state-of-the-art processing lines, a color matching and applications development center, warehouse, and administrative offices. The plant will produce the Toyo Ink Group’s recognized Lioplax series of high-performance plastic colorants for blow molding, extrusion, and high-speed injection molding applications. The Group now operates 13 such facilities spanning 11 countries in Europe, the Americas, and Asia, including Japan and India.
