Omya Solar Inks

We are happy to announce that we successfully advised globally-active minerals producer Omya Group on entering into a partnership with British renewable coatings producer Solar Inks.


Omya AG is a family-owned, multi-billion euro company, producing industrial minerals (primarily involving calcium carbonate and dolomite) and a worldwide specialty chemicals distributor from Switzerland. 175 locations in over 50 countries provide 8,000 employees a working place.

Solar Inks Ltd. was founded by Jonathan Mack in 2004 and focuses on highly innovative barrier solutions using only sustainable ingredients. The three product lines—Earth Inks, Earth Coatings and Earth Adhesives—have earned the company a great reputation within the packaging industry.

Omya represents an ideal partner to boost Solar Ink’s product development, and by leveraging both companies‘ networks, the combined business will be best positioned to serve the needs of customers globally.
