Domino Printing Sciences, based at Bar Hill in Cambridgeshire, is celebrating winning a Queen’s Award for Innovation, in recognition of its A-Series i-Tech range of industrial continuous ink jet printers which have increased customer efficiency and driven market share growth.
This is the sixth Queen’s Award for the company since its incorporation in 1978.
The A-Series i-Tech range of printers have been designed utilising significant advances in innovation and technology, changing the standards of performance and operation, leading to enhancements in the cleaning and servicing of printers, handling waste, reducing ink usage and optimising print quality.
The key benefits delivered by the intelligent Technology (i-Tech) ink system and electronic platform have resulted in efficient, high-performance coding with legibility at high speeds, reduced service interventions, ultra-low consumption of organic solvents – with environmental and waste-disposal benefits – and a range of innovative ink formulations that comply fully with European and global food packaging guidelines.
Nigel Bond, CEO of Domino Printing Sciences said: “We are honoured and proud to have been selected for a Queen’s Award for Innovation. It is a fitting tribute to our skilled and talented team who have worked on the A-Series and i-Tech ink system which is proving so popular with customers across the world and is delivering real benefits to their operations.”
A ceremony will take place at Domino’s Bar Hill headquarters in due course at which a presentation will be made by the Lord Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire.
Domino last won a Queen’s Award in 2012 for Continuous Achievement in International Trade.
