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.

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.”
