Only days after entering into a definitive agreement to acquire drying and curing specialist Tesoma, Kornit has officially opened its brand new state-of-the-art ink manufacturing facility in Kiryat Gat, Israel.

Kornit says that the 11,000sqm facility incorporates advanced automation, sophisticated workflows, and innovative technologies for production optimisation. The company believes that the high-volume production facility will fulfill global demand for its consumables for the next decade.

Recently completed at an estimated investment of $25 million, the facility was built in accordance with the highest quality, safety, and security standards, reflecting Kornit’s commitment to the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) targets laid out in its 2020 Impact Report.

‘This is a key milestone in our journey to become a $1 billion company by 2026 and will ensure for many years to come that we can support the tremendous growth our customers are experiencing,’ explained Ronen Samuel, the company’s chief executive officer. ‘We are proud to lead the charge for a cleaner and more responsive textile industry as we continue to write the operating system for sustainable fashion and textiles on demand.’
