Diamond Dispersions supplies raw materials, including tiny solid particles of pigments, dyes, dye sublimations and materials sensitive to ultraviolet light, used to make inks for a range of digital printers.

As a newcomer in ink manufacturing, Diamond Dispersions had to gain credibility in a highly technical and very conservative international marketplace.

After proving its ability to manufacture quality products to the same specification over and over again, the company set about distinguishing itself from competitors by providing levels of service and accessibility that its US and European multinational rivals could not offer, in addition to providing full technical information to save clients valuable laboratory time.

As a result, 86 per cent of the production of its Darnall-based factory is now exported to Europe, China, USA, Canada, Brazil, Indonesia, South Korea and Russia.

The company is growing every year, increasing the number of its sales by around 45 per cent.
