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-shopfor 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.” 

 

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
