Prism Inks (Sunnyvale, CA) recently announced its 20th year in business as an advanced ink manufacturer. Prism will commemorate the occasion with promotional events for its customers over the next 30 days.

Founded in Sunnyvale, CA as an offshoot of Topaz Technologies, a company owned by Lockheed Martin, Amir Ajanee, CEO and president and Graham Dracup, vice president of engineering, co-founded the company based upon a philosophy of using world class manufacturing and development for the benefit of its customers and its employees. Being in the midst of the Silicon Valley has provided a competitive R&D advantage in providing leading-edge and environmentally safe products.

Both Ajanee and Dracup are immigrants to the US. Ajanee came from Pakistan as a teenager. Dracup was born in the UK and immigrated to work at Topaz Technologies. Ajanee and Dracup both worked at Topaz Technologies, but when the opportunity presented itself, they formed Prism Inks.

"We are true believers in the American dream of working hard to achieve fuller lives and better opportunities for all of our coworkers so that they participate in the success of the company. For years we have shared a portion of the annual profits with our employees so that their hard work is further recognized and rewarded. This is really important to both Graham and me,” Ajanee said.

“Although I am pleased with the exponential growth rate and financial success of the company, I am far more proud of being able to provide well-paying jobs with excellent benefits to our employees. Prism Inks is a melting pot of employees with diverse backgrounds like Amir and me, and being able to provide for our employees is indeed a blessing,” Dracup said.
