Alden & Ott Printing Inks Company was founded by Joe Alden and Henry Ott in 1957 as an offset ink manufacturer. Like most small companies, they saw an opportunity and had a vision and a belief that they could do it better. Starting with just a few select printers, they developed better formulations with better performance and delivered them with better service. The company began to grow.

Henry Ott, who was the company chemist, decided to pursue other interests. Joe Alden purchased his shares in the company and continued to grow the business. His passion for excellence was passed on to his four sons, Joe, Tom, John and Ted.

In the early 80s the company formed a new printing blanket converting division to offer additional services to their customers. Mr. Alden's son Joe took over the management of Premier Blanket Services, Inc. and today it is the largest independent converter of printing blankets in the country.

Alden & Ott Printing Inks Company is now a proud extension of the hubergroup family. hubergroup is one of the world's leading specialists for printing inks, coatings and press room auxiliaries, currently comprising 40 companies and 130 sites. This successful, family-owned enterprise with more than 250 years of experience and expertise in the printing inks industry manufactures top quality products for packaging, commercial and newsprinting. In 2016, the Group with its global workforce exceeding 3500, generated sales of approximately $885 million.

Alden & Ott Printing Inks Company has transformed itself many times since 1957. Always anticipating their customers’ needs, the company expanded its products from heat-set inks to non-heat-set inks, UV inks, and now flexo inks. Today, Alden & Ott is an all-purpose ink manufacturer developing custom solutions for both the offset and flexo printing markets.

Defining Alden & Ott is their unwavering commitment to customer service. Alden & Ott remains focused on their customer’s' printing success —one printing job at a time.
