At Needham Inks we possess a well-equipped Research and Development facility alongside substantial internal resources to offer custom-made products for specific applications.

If required, we could also call upon external resources in the form of Universities and academia of international repute, with which we have a history of good partnerships and successful projects.

We can solve issues within a wide area ranging from the traditional printing or marking methods to providing high-tech inkjet fluids, their characterisation and optimisation of various properties including print quality and functional performance.


Typical R&D projects range from product development opportunities funded internally or by the customer, to those which are fully funded through government bodies.

Please feel free to discuss any specific requirements with us.
