BARCELONA, Spain - Nubiola is expanding the manufacturing capacity of ultramarine violets and pinks by 30 percent in the Llodio (Basque Country, Spain) production plant. The expansion will be achieved by installing new equipment that operates with Nubiola’s proprietary manufacturing technology and is scheduled to be fully operational in early 2011.

“Ultramarine violets and pinks are key products in many of our customers' applications. Market demand has been growing significantly in recent years, and we want to ensure that our production capacity is sufficient to avoid any supply tightness that could affect the operations of our customers,” said Alex Capuz, Nubiola’s Global Marketing Manager.
