Company History

Nazdar's story began in 1922 in the back of a small store in Chicago. Nazdar's transformation from these humble beginnings to one of the world's leading manufacturers of screen printing inks is the story of the emergence of the screen printing industry itself.

Throughout the 1930's, 1940's and 1950's, what was then Naz-Dar focused on developing new inks to meet the increasingly sophisticated demands of screen printers. The growth of the plastics industry was a major factor in the expanded use of screen printing in the 1950's and 1960's. During this period the Company's first extensive R&D programs were established to keep pace with the rapidly increasing demand for higher performance screen printing products.

In the 1960's and 70's, relationships were established with the core of Nazdar's distribution network. Through this network Nazdar now serves the US and international markets with distribution that brings Nazdar's family of imaging products to Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, Asia, and Australia.

In 1982, Naz-Dar acquired KC Coatings. By combining the industry's most popular ink lines, most extensive distribution, and most advanced R&D capabilities under one name, the acquisition ensured that the new Naz-Dar/KC would always be at the forefront of innovative research and product development.

In 1993, the Company acquired the ink and supplies division of Advance Process Supply Company. As a symbol of the successful unification of its acquisitions, the Company simplified its identity and became Nazdar.

Anticipating the acceptance of digital technology in the screen printing market, in 1995, Nazdar established Nazdar Digital, dedicated to serving the needs of the large format digital printing industry.

In 1997, Nazdar acquired the Canadian company, Ink Dezyne, and intensified the already successful development of digital inks for large format printers. This culminated with the highly successful launch of NDI Series digital inks in 2001.

From its humble beginnings, Nazdar has grown into one of the major international manufacturers and distributors of screen printing inks, supplies and equipment . The Company's strong commitment to research, customer service, and quality ensures that all of the ink, supply and equipment needs of a graphics imaging business can be met in one place — Nazdar.
