LUXEMBOURG - In order to meet the increased demand and to further improve its service to packaging converters and commercial printers Flint Group is expanding its manufacturing site for liquid packaging and sheetfed inks at Konstantynow Lodzki in Poland.
“Thanks to strong and long-term partnerships with our established customers, we can look back on a very successful business development in this country during the last 10 years of Flint Group’s presence in Poland,” said Krzysztof Struszczak, Managing Director Flint Group Polska. “The original site layout was coming close to its limits. Consequently it was decided to improve the infrastructure and expand the capacity of our Polish site to accommodate future growth.”
The new site setup will include extended storage and blending areas for solvent- and water-based inks as well as a sheet-fed mixing area. As part of the expansion, a new solvent-based blending system for packaging inks, became operational in December 2009 to ensure fulfillment of committed lead times and supply contingency during the extension of the site.
