The Needham Group (TNG) is a family business with its roots in the heart of rural Shropshire. Founded by Roger Needham in 1962, the company has grown from a regional distributor of marker pens to a diverse group of divisions serving a wide variety of market sectors.


Needham Inks develop, manufacture and globally distribute inks, solvents and dyes. Regarded as experts for over five decades, we supply inks to over 80 different countries. Our products are used for a wide variety of applications, ranging from marking eggs or meat, to high resistance solutions for automotive parts.


For over 20 years we have supplied, supported, maintained and developed industrial ink jet and laser coding/etching systems for a multitude of applications.


Needham Coding distribution partners with distributors worldwide to expand the reach of the Needham Coding products, including the N-SERIES range of CIJ printers and the S-SERIES line of high-resolution inkjet printers. As an expert in the marking industry, we have built a sterling reputation as a leader in the field.


Drawing from its rich experience as a distributor in the laser marking sector, Needham Laser Technologies sprang to life in 2019 with its range of small to large systems – The N-Lase Laser Marking Machines. With a focus on innovation and cutting-edge technology, the company is pushing the boundaries of industrial, manufacturing and retail applications.


As the Irish arm of Needham Coding, the company supplies marking equipment and consumables to the Irish market. The Co Westmeath-based company works with companies in a range of industries to provide a cost-effective coding solution with ongoing engineering support. From laser systems to inkjet machines, there is a wide-range of systems that suit most industrial marking applications.
