American Inks and Coatings has evolved from the Progressive Ink Company that was founded by Jerry Mosley in 1985 and sold to Alper Holdings in 1996. In 2001, Mosley Holdings Incorporated formed Packaging Inks Corporation and in 2002 acquired American Inks and Coatings. The two organizations were merged under the name of American Inks and Coatings. Solely focused on the liquid packaging market, we offer the full spectrum of water and solvent-based ink systems required to support this industry. Our Progressive Coatings Division complements our ink offerings by producing the water , solvent, radiation cured, and specialty coatings that enable us to provide the entire ink and coatings package for our customers.

In 2012 Mosley Holdings, announced the acquisition of Graphic Sciences, a Portland, Oregon based printing ink manufacturer. Graphic Sciences will become a part of American Inks and Coatings a wholly owned subsidiary of Mosley Holdings. Graphic Sciences operates 9 plants throughout the United States and one in Canada with its corporate office in Portland, Oregon.  American Inks and Coatings will continue to operate the 8 facilities and consolidate the corporate offices to Mosley Holdings in Sheridan.  Jeff Ashburn, President of Graphic Sciences, will continue to lead this group for American Inks and Coatings.

“This acquisition strengthens our product offerings and will be a tremendous benefit in reaching our goal for American Inks and Coatings which is to be the premier packaging ink company in the United States.”  Michael Mosley COO

On December 23, 2013 American Ink and Coatings (AIC) signed a definitive agreement to acquire Color Resolutions International (CRI) through an asset purchase arrangement. CRI will operate as a subsidiary of AIC and will continue to market to specialty converters whom aspire to produce lithographic type quality for value added packaging

June 30, 2016, Flint Group confirmed and finalised the acquisition of American Inks and Coatings.  The strategic partnering of the companies combines two well-established suppliers of inks and coatings to the North American packaging industry enhancing its support of packaging printers in this region.

Working together, the companies are a customer-focused inks and coatings supplier who can provide the best overall solutions – delivering what is needed by printers today and well into the future.
