History

Domino Printing Sciences (Domino) is a world-class provider of coding, marking, and digital printing technologies. The company was founded in 1978 by Graeme Minto, previously employed as a project leader at Cambridge Consultants. Minto’s focus had been on multi-jet printing when he realised the potential of a single technology within his remit: continuous inkjet.

The first Domino continuous inkjet (CIJ), Unijet, was developed in 1979, as a solution for customers applying variable data to printed products. Later, with the introduction of food safety regulations including best before dates, Domino began developing reliable, cost-effective CIJ printers for manufacturers requiring on-site product coding and marking for compliance purposes.

More than 40 years on from the creation of the first Domino CIJ printer, Domino continues to build on the same founding work, by identifying ways to apply industrial printing expertise and manufacturing excellence to help customers to remain compliant, as well as reduce manufacturing waste, eradicate errors, and protect both their brands and their consumers.

Today, Domino’s product portfolio includes continuous inkjet, thermal inkjet, piezo drop on demand, thermal transfer overprinting, print and apply machines, CO2 and fibre laser systems, variable data printers, digital printing presses for labels and corrugated packaging, as well as a range of software, control, and vision systems. The company has an established, global reputation for excellence and innovation within its core technologies, software services, worldwide aftermarket products, and best-in-class customer service.

Domino’s Digital Printing Solutions division serves the commercial printing sector with highspeed, full-colour, digital printing presses for labels and corrugated packaging, as well as monochrome inkjet printing equipment for the variable data printing of codes, addresses, and personalisation for multiple different printing industry applications.

The Domino Group employs more than 2,900 people and operates in over 120 countries, with manufacturing facilities in the UK, US, China, Germany, India, Sweden, and Switzerland. Our global network of sales and service centres including 25 subsidiary offices, and more than 200 distributors, provides all regions with high-quality service.

Domino became an autonomous division within the Brother Group in 2015.
