About Codico Distributors.

Codico Premises Waterford Codico was established in 1988 to market and service Domino continuous inkjet printers and drop on demand printers, to the packaging and printing industry in Ireland. We are now over 25 years in business. The demand for printing variable information at high speed, became a major issue as companies strived for faster production lines for their products. Within a very short space of time we were selling into all industry sectors.

The coding requirements ranged from single line printing up to eight lines of print. Print size from 0.6mm in height up to 100mm. Customers wanted to be able to print Logo’s and barcodes. Incremental and decremental numbering as well as random numbering and addressing. Batch / lot codes, shift codes, best before dates, expiry Dates and Traceability codes were also high on the list.

We then discovered that there was a need for more and more types of ink with colour variations. Ink that could change colour, would dry in less than 1 second, was to military specification, UV readable, alkali washable and able to adhere to bottles wet with condensation. The list is endless.

There then followed IP65 rated machines, Pinpoint print technology for the most discrete codes, and the patented "Freeform" Software, which gives us Near Letter Quality Print.

Building the machines, inks and software up to the various regulatory standards including 21 CFR Part 11 and GAMP

Since the early 2000’s, Codico has been at the forefront of Laser marking in Ireland, particularly with CO2 laser technology and recently with Fiber laser.

No matter the size of the project, Codico can provide our customers with a turnkey bespoke coding and marking solution to meet the modern day demands of automated product production and sophisticated packaging requirements.

We then drove our service department to achieve less than 24 hour response times in any part of Ireland. There is overnight delivery for Inks and Spares, and to keep up with this service and support we opened a subsidiary office in Newry Co. Down. Codico now averages an emergency breakdown response time of 8 working hours.
