Nazdar Ink Technologies, which recently celebrated 100 years in business, announces it has entered into a license and manufacturing agreement with France-based VFP Ink Technologies to produce and distribute VFP’s electronic ink for the conductive printing market in the U.S.
“We’re delighted to enhance our partnership with VFP Ink Technologies,” says Richard Bowles, president and CEO of Nazdar. “VFP Ink Technologies’ early vision on the conductive inks market potential and their ambitious R&D program (VFP investing 10% of annual sales revenue), make them a well-respected printing inks manufacturer. Together with Nazdar’s excellent ink manufacturing capability, we are excited to offer great support for new and existing U.S. customers.”

VFP’s core business is developing and manufacturing decorative and functional screen inks for industrial applications, such as bank cards, adhesive labels, and printed electronics. This is said to expand on the current relationship between Nazdar and VFP — with Nazdar having sold VFP credit card inks in the U.S. since 2012.
VFP President Marc Doligé states, “Working with Nazdar for several years has proven them to be invaluable partners. It is a logical next step to allow them to make our electronic inks for the U.S. It is another good opportunity to bring an added value to our existing offer to our customers.”
