Inx International Ink has promoted three executive managers to vice president: Anthony De Francesco, Alex Folloso and Kim Hill.

Combined, they have 50-plus years of experience and have led their respective teams to new levels of innovation, productivity and excellence.

De Francesco, a logistics professional with over 10 years of experience, joined Inx two years ago. He has reshaped key pillars of the company, including logistic operations, procurement and supply planning, and was promoted to vice president of integrated supply chain.

'Prior to being welcomed into the Inx family, I was blind to the heart and soul behind the color I saw every day,' he said. 'I am humbled to say I am forever changed working alongside so many talented and likeminded individuals.'

In addition, De Francesco was instrumental in reshaping the company’s transportation footprint while reducing costs and rightsizing inventory without impacting service.

Folloso joined Inx as a summer intern after college 26 years ago. Now he is the vice president of R&D metal decorating technology and the driving force behind the company’s global metal decoration and rigid plastic ink development. 

'I look forward to helping lead INX’s Metal division to be the best in the world,' he said.

Folloso also leads the efforts for manufacturing and quality standardization at the company's two-piece and flat sheet metal decorating facilities. A recognized industry expert, he often attends events and frequently speaks on topics related to sustainability and food safety.

Hill is a strong technical administrator who began her career at Inx 19 years ago and has worked in all facets of the liquid ink division. The new vice president of R&D liquid solvent technology, Hill has expertise in raw material procurement, manufacturing, ink development and sales in the US, as well as with foreign partners and subsidiaries.

Hill has contributed to developing control systems synthesizing Inx’s in-house proprietary resin systems that are unique to the industry and has earned the reputation as the go-to source to resolve issues and develop new technologies.

'I consider myself fortunate to have worked with so many talented individuals at Inx, Sakata Inx and with our global partners,' Hill said. 'It has been a pleasure to watch my colleagues grow in their careers, and I look forward to contributing to INX’s future success with new and innovative solutions for our customers.'
