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 impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.
A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has
demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.
As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.
The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.
Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
