INX International continues work amid global COVID-19 crisis

Schaumburg, IL – March 23, 2020 – INX International Ink Co. will continue its manufacturing operations amid the global COVID-19 pandemic, in accordance with government directives that permit essential businesses to operate when they supply or otherwise support critical infrastructure stability. 

INX will continue to support our customers’ production and distribution of vital food, beverages, and household health and safety products as an essential supplier. “Production is especially critical right now to meet the sudden increased demand from consumers and retailers,” explained John Hrdlick, President and CEO of INX International. “Our customers require inks and chemical products for all forms of food packaging, medical labels and vital communication materials defined as printed media. The manufacture of printing ink is a fundamental chemical process to prevent widespread shortages of these essential products around the globe.”

INX’s role as an essential supplier will not detract from our commitment to our employees, as Hrdlick explained.  “The safety and well-being of our employees, as well as our customers and suppliers, is of the greatest importance to us,” said Hrdlick. “While we will continue our manufacturing operations, we, like many other businesses, have taken necessary steps to support employees’ work from home when feasible and to institute additional safety protections for those employees whose work must be performed onsite.”

INX has created a special section on the company website for the most up-to-date information about the coronavirus situation:
