NEOS, a leader in the digital printing industry for manufacturing, kicks off the new year with an anticipated development: the relocation to the new headquarters in Fiorano Modenese, just steps away from the iconic Made in Italy symbol, Ferrari. A significant step forward for the company, which, in just a few years, has gained new market shares, demonstrating consistent revenue growth. Currently, the company is poised to solidify its success with a turnover of €15 million and looks confidently to the future, aiming to double this figure by 2026.
After a period of foundational development, coupled with a turbulent economic landscape since 2020, NEOS has accelerated its pace last year, reinforcing its position as an industry leader. Continuous technological refinement, active participation in international technical conferences, and presence at two key global industry events marked 2023 as a decisive year for the company, both in initiatives and the number of successful installations across various industrial sectors.
“Made in NEOS” inkjet printing solutions have proven highly effective for applications in the furniture industry and packaging sector. From large-format decoration (over two meters in width) and wallpaper printing to printing on plastic film for surface protection, dedicated lines for folding cardboard, melamine-coated panels, and metal packaging, not to mention the deep expertise in edge-banding.
During this period, NEOS successfully collaborated with InkGenio in formulating cutting-edge and customized inks, ensuring compliance with high standards in the food and furniture industry. Notable offerings include special colors and inks with tactile and reflective effects, along with a wide selection of primers developed for treating various types of substrates.
Today, with a 12,000-square-meter facility adhering to the latest standards of sustainability and innovation, NEOS is ready to expand its presence beyond borders. The new facility, powered by a solar panel park, not only quadruples production capacity but also integrates the machine hardware division with InkGenio’s expertise in inkjet-ink development and manufacturing. A separate area has been dedicated to the Food segment to avoid possible contaminations and comply with GMP regulations governing the food packaging market.
Already responsible for the complete development and design of its machines, from mechanical and electronic aspects to software and color management, NEOS can now offer even more comprehensive solutions.
Vincenzo Palumbo, founder of NEOS, enthusiastically comments, “We are excited about this new chapter in our history. NEOS’s vision has always been oriented towards combining expertise and technologies to offer cutting-edge solutions in digital printing. With the new headquarters and on-site integration of InkGenio, we create an innovation hub where the design of printing machines synergistically merges with custom ink design. This way, we can provide even more immediate and precise responses to our customers, meeting all their demands with shared and increasingly advanced expertise.”
A strategic emphasis is the innovative demo center for conducting demonstrative tests with customer specific substrates. The modular approach to designing inkjet-printers meeting exactly the customer’s requirements allows Neos to build specific solutions for a wide variety of customer requirements. The conference area for seminars and training activities is available for specific operator briefings and general trainings.
With these initiatives, NEOS inaugurates 2024 with a firm commitment to stand out internationally for the excellence of its Made in Italy products and the flexibility of its technologies, essential tools for addressing the contemporary market. The goal is to maximize the advantages of digital technology, contributing to environmental impact reduction through optimized energy consumption and decreased material waste.
