‘One Team, One Future, One Flint Group’

Hall 3, Hall 8A, Hall 8b

Flint Group
Flint will demo its ‘One Team, One Future, One Flint Group’ concept with a vast range of flexographic plates and equipment at drupa

Flint will have three distinct spaces at the exhibition – Hall 3 in the South of the fairground will be home to a small Flint Group information stand, which is situated in the heart of the ink and print consumables suppliers’ area. It is ideally positioned to catch passing visitors looking for alternative print consumable partners and is also a meeting hub for existing customers and dealers.

Hall 8b in the Northern sector of the show will house a 245 square metre Flint Group prepress stand. This stand will be shared between the Flint Group Flexographic Products Division and Thermoflex, who join along with Xeikon, and is part of the new Digital Printing Solutions Division. With this joint stand the commonalities in the prepress area will be presented to the visitors. Hall 8a is the location of its main 1,200 square metre stand. There will be joint branding of Flint Group and Xeikon which will highlight the pairing of both the companies.

Packaging South Asia is the cooperating media partner for drupa 2016 which is scheduled to be held from 31 May to 10 June at Dusseldorf, Germany.

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.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
