Squid Ink is a manufacturer of coding and marking systems for product identification and traceability, providing superior quality inks and low maintenance printing equipment.
Squid Ink began in 1991, supplying high quality ink jet fluids at a fair price, at a time when the industry standard for drop-on-demand ink was more than $300 per 5-gallon pail. Squid Ink was able to produce a superior quality product for less than half the price. We gave customers more value for their money and earned their trust.
Since then, this commitment to provide value-added products has grown and expanded to include printing systems as well as replacement inks. Our printers and ink are designed to print the highest quality bar codes, batch numbers, date codes, logos and large or small character text, directly onto corrugated cases, plastics, metals, glass, wood and other substrates.
And Squid Ink continues to design new products that are reliable, easy to use, and cost effective. Our latest example is the AutoPilot, a new feature-rich printing system that offers multiple printheads, each with .7” hi-resolution capability, all controlled by a full color touchscreen. The AutoPilot’s no mess ink cartridges offers users clean and reliable printing of bar codes, logos and razor-sharp small character text. Again, at the lowest cost per code in it’s class.
Today, Squid Ink continues to focus on it’s core purpose to “help companies deliver products to the world.” An expanding line of integrated products and services reflect Squid Ink’s commitment to meet new needs and new challenges, and ensure that customers have reliable systems for their packaging application.
Squid Ink operates as a subsidiary of Engage Technologies, parent company of Squid Ink, Eastey Enterprises, and Cogent Technologies. Eastey (www.eastey.com) is a leading manufacturer of heavy-duty shrink packaging equipment and automated case sealing systems for packaging applications. Cogent Technologies (www.cogent-tech.com) manufactures infrared drying systems used to dry ink in the industrial and graphics industries.
Squid Ink’s move to a new corporate building in Brooklyn Park, MN provides the base for more efficient, streamlined operations, as the company continues to integrate packaging line solutions. The company has facilities in Rogers, MN, Spring Lake Park, MN and Shanghai, China. Squid Ink continues to expand sales and services, with authorized distributors strategically located throughout the U.S. and the rest of the world.
