American Inks And Coatings once was one of the many ink producers in the Delaware Valley. They even had plants in two other states. Around 2002 the company was sold. Sometime last year the local plant was acquired by Delaware Valley Properties out of Valley Forge, PA. And that is all I have been able to find out. There is a notice out in front of the plant about a public hearing which was to be held last April to re-zone the property.
It amazes me there is virtually no information on the demise of this plant. I suppose the death of American manufacturing is'nt that big of a story any longer.
