Flint Group Packaging is excited to announce its participation at the FTA Infoflex event on 14-15 March in Fort Worth, Texas. The company’s flexible packaging, paper and board, and narrow web teams will be onsite to meet with customers at stand 414 at the Fort Worth Convention Center.

Nicki Kerrigan, vice-president and general manager for Flint Group Flexible Packaging explains, “In our dynamic package printing market, printers may look to their vendors for support related to areas such as sustainability and simplification, and innovations designed for cutting edge printing systems and techniques. Our teams focus on reducing complexity and improving processes – and, more importantly, we can help our customers become more sustainable.

“At Infoflex, we are excited to discuss our extensive range of ink and coating technologies that drive value for packaging and label printers and to share insight on where real process opportunities lie. Our teams understand today’s print challenges and requirements – and by exhibiting, in person, at Infoflex, we have a fantastic opportunity to demonstrate our passion and drive to help printers navigate through the critical topics facing them today.”

Innovation on display during the event will include inks and coatings for flexible packaging, paper and board and narrow web labels. The company’s sustainable offerings will be a focal point of discussion. TerraCode, for water-based package printing, and sustainable evolution ink, coating and primer range for narrow web labels, has been specially formulated to address rising market and consumer demand for a circular economy in packaging.
Visitors to Infoflex can learn more about Flint Group Packaging’s expertise in color management, including consistency across substrates and spot colors. Supporting its growing portfolio of customers, the business is eager to discuss Vivo Colour Solutions, a unique tool designed to increase converters’ color accuracy and press uptime and reduce substrate and ink waste.

Kerrigan concluded, “We look forward to meeting face to face and demonstrating how our teams are well-positioned to help customers, as we highlight our suite of services and our wide range of inks and coatings for packaging and labels.”

 

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.
