Sun Chemical and its parent company, DIC Corporation, have completed the purchase of 100 percent of the shares of Sensient Imaging Technologies to expand its inkjet ink capabilities and expertise.
The strategic investment in Sensient Imaging Technologies, a supplier of digital inks, will allow Sun Chemical and DIC to expand its inkjet ink capabilities and expertise using complementary technologies that will further strengthen the standards of services and technologies to its customers and distributor partners.
The acquisition also underscores Sun Chemical's ongoing commitment to sustainability by expanding its offering of inkjet inks for textile and dye sublimation printing.
