Contract Manufacturing of Colorants and High Quality Chemicals

We manufacture inkjet colorants for use in aqueous inkjet ink, at our Grangemouth facility in Scotland, providing high quality, industrial scale manufacture, and the latest chemical processes, proprietary technology and technical expertise. Coupled with our Colorant Technology Center at the same location, we are uniquely positioned to serve these expanding global opportunities.


Our expertise in colorant chemistry is the result of nearly one hundred years in the dye and pigment industry, with almost 30 years specifically developing inkjet applications. At our state-of-the-art Colorant Technology Center, we continue to develop the next generation of unique products to meet the evolving technical needs of the inkjet ink market.

We deliver with a high capacity, mixed asset base with vessels from 1 up to 60 m³ for routine colorant manufacture. With dedicated assets for toner development and scale-up at a variety of capacities for both development and commercial use (100s tonnes scale), we have a proven rapid scale-up capability to high-volume manufacture in all colorant product sectors.

We implement a rigorous compliance system across all operations, and a globally managed supply chain. With meticulous attention to purity, insolubles, metals and salt content at each process stage, our robust quality assurance system is applied during all colorant development stages.


Although coloring and dyes are our heritage, our advanced chemical and physical processing technology and state-of-the-art physical and analytical science laboratories can be adapted to many other sectors. Fujifilm's development team is highly skilled in process scale-up from gram to multi-ton. This is supplemented by years of successful, complex technology transfer experience.

Our specialist teams of chemists, engineers and analysts possess an in-depth knowledge across a broad spectrum of chemistries and work strategically with our customers to deliver innovative and cost-effective solutions for industrial-scale chemical processing and manufacture.
