Nur Ink Innovations, the Israeli developer of water-based and environmentally friendly pigment inks, has confirmed its first commercial purchase order from a Japanese company that it describes as ‘one of the world’s largest digital printer manufacturers.’

The agreement will see Nur provide the customer with a water-based digital printing pigment ink it has successfully developed for use when producing t-shirts and other garments. 

Moshe Nur, chairman of the board and company CEO, commented on the deal. ‘This is a first commercial purchase order for Nur Ink that follows the successful pilot with one of the worlds’ leading digital printers manufacturers. This purchase order demonstrates our success and strengthens our position as a company that brings a real “green” revolution to the digital printing industry.

‘I am happy that we succeeded to achieve the targets and commitments we presented to our investors and during our IPO earlier this year – targets which include a commercial order before the end of this year. This initial purchase order is a strong vote of confidence on our strategic customer’s part and will bring our innovative products to our customer’s end-users’ print production process.’

Eliav Priel, Nur’s business development manager, added, ‘This order opens for us a window of opportunity to an international market that today is untouched – including digital printing with water-based pigment inks directly onto dark garments made of 100% polyester fabric. We believe the inks we develop, which comply with the industry’s ecological standards will facilitate further implementation and usage of water-based pigment inks and enable us to take advantage of a huge and growing market potential.’
