Flint Group, a leading global supplier of print consumables, announced the launch of Flint Offset Packaging Solutions (FOPS), a new division aligning the route to market for sheetfed inks, pressroom chemicals, and printing blankets.  

While the sheetfed and image transfer technologies teams have worked closely together for many years, servicing their common customer base, the alignment of these product groups under one leadership structure will provide FOPS’ customer base with a ‘one-stop-shop for all sheetfed offset commercial and packaging printers.

Flint Group FOPS creation to strengthen the company position

“The alignment of sheetfed inks and image transfer technologies is a positive step for Flint Group, enabling FOPS to become a full portfolio provider for the offset printing industry,” said Tony Lord, President of FOPS. “We will continue to serve our customer base across both the sheetfed commercial and packaging printing market segments and look to expand our focus, support, and expertise within sheetfed packaging. Our strategy remains unchanged, to be a leading provider of pressroom products and services, delivering exceptional value, quality, and innovation, and the creation of FOPS strengthens our position to achieve our goals.”

Nick Brannan, global commercial director, FOPS, said, “A single point of contact for sheetfed inks, pressroom chemicals, and printing blankets will be hugely beneficial for our customers. Our expert sales team has a wealth of experience and knowledge across all aspects of the offset printing market. They are now well-positioned to support our customers with a uniquely powerful combination of products and services, with access to the industry’s broadest array of pressroom products through a single sales contact.” 

 

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
