Whilst 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.
“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 service 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, press room chemicals and printing blankets will be hugely beneficial for our customers. Our expert sales team have a wealth of experience and knowledge across all aspects of the offset printing market and 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.”
Flint Offset Packaging Solutions brings together the globally recognised brands K+E, Day and Varn to further strengthen Flint Groups position in the offset printing market.
