Rising sales help Diamond to sparkle

Have your say

Award winning global inkjet specialist Diamond Dispersions has boosted sales by 32 per cent for the six months to the end of February and by 47 per cent for the first quarter of the current year.

The Darnall-based company says March was a record month and sales look set to continue rising.

Diamond makes key raw materials used to make inks used in inkjet printers and dyes for printing on fabrics.

It won a Queen’s Award for international trade last year after almost doubling overseas earnings during the previous three years.

Finance director Craig Jones said: “Demand for our dye sublimation dispersions continues to increase with new and existing customers across the world placing orders with us.

“After three years of developing key relationships in South America our work in Brazil, particularly in the textile industry, has really taken off.

“South Korea also remains a very strong market for us.”

Although Diamond has spare capacity to meet current demand, the company is planning to invest in new plant to meet anticipated future growth.

It has been recruiting additional laboratory staff and is planning to increase its production team in coming months.
