SIEGBURG, Germany & BOIS-DES-FILION, Canada—Siegwerk Druckfarben AG & Co KGaA, a leading international supplier of printing inks for packaging applications and labels, has signed a contract to purchase Ultra Inks Inc. The Canadian expert for flexographic inks is located in Bois-des-Filion, Québec, and focuses primarily on water-based flexo inks for narrow web and paper and board applications.
“Ultra Inks is a well-established expert for packaging and label inks with a very strong local reputation, especially in Québec. The company is known for its highly personalized inks and services and therefore is a perfect fit to our Siegwerk family,” explains Dave Hiserodt, head of CUSA Region at Siegwerk.
The acquisition enables Siegwerk to significantly expand its local footprint and build up its infrastructure and workforce to further grow in the region and across Canada.
Ultra Inks has more than 20 years of experience in the Canadian market and offers well-established high-quality products. The integration of Ultra’s inks into Siegwerk’s broad offering will enable Ultra Ink customers to benefit from a more comprehensive product portfolio and the wider technological expertise, according to Siegwerk.
“We believe in partnerships that put the emphasis on clients’ needs, commitment to quality and product development and this is exactly what we have found in Siegwerk,” says Frédéric Perrier, CEO at Ultra Inks. “We are very glad to name Siegwerk the new owner of our company who will integrate our quality ink into a significantly larger structure and thus further advance it on the market. As far as service and support is concerned, Ultra Inks will maintain its high standards.”
Going forward, Siegwerk will continue to produce and serve customers from Ultra’s production site in Bois-des-Filion. Ultra Inks Inc. will become part of Siegwerk Canada.
