Inkit works primarily with the development and sale of inks and related hardware for industrial use. Each type of ink is designed for a particular application, which can be anything from marking plasterboard to printing production dates on eggs.
Inkit was founded in 2009 by Per Nilsson, a chemical engineer with extensive experience from the industry.
"I saw the possibility to develop products in a different way and wanted to take the chance to do so by starting my own business. And that's how we continue to work today – we design products the way we think they should be developed."
As we step through the doors to Inkit's premises at Ringön in Gothenburg, we find ourselves in the midst of a lab. Technical equipment, test tubes and walls splashed with ink reveal that this is where it all happens.
"We produce all our inks here, as well as conduct development and testing," says Per.
Opened doors to Europe
When Inkit realised they needed to reconsider their production costs, they got in touch with Enterprise Europe Network.
