Felipe Mellado, chief marketing officer and board member at Sun Chemical comments, “Sun Chemical remains committed to all its publication businesses. The acquisition of Flint Group’s publication gravure ink business reaffirms our commitment to this sector and will enable us to further strengthen and enhance the performance of our own publication gravure plants. We pride ourselves on our high level of quality and customer service and – after completion of the transaction – will work alongside Flint Group to ensure a smooth and seamless transition of operations, ensuring customers are fully supported.”
Completion of the sale is still subject to customary closing conditions, including the approval of the competition authorities. Until such time as approval is granted, Sun Chemical and Flint Group will continue to manage their European publication gravure businesses independently without impact to customers, employees and suppliers.
