Flint Ink and XSYS Announce New Company Name

Flint Group includes Jetrion and other business units.




“Flint Group” has been selected as the new name for the holding company created by the merger in late 2005 of European-based XSYS Print Solutions and American-owned Flint Ink Corporation.

The selection of the name was based on the need for a structure and naming system that was logical, yet built on business brands that were familiar to the global printing marketplace, says Dave Frescoln, CEO of the new company: “Customers, employees, and the industry need to be able to make sense of this new company. 'Flint Group' was based on the international recognition of the Flint name, and the fact that the organization comprises a group of business units dedicated to specific segments of the global printing market.”

The Flint Group comprises five primary business units:
“? Flint Group's core ink business, which delivers a range of products and services to the flexographic, sheetfed, heatset and coldset web offset, gravure, energy-curable, and specialty printing markets. The business is organized into regional units serving Europe, North America, Latin America, Asia, and the India/Pacific region.
“? Jetrion LLC, which provides enhanced digital inks, equipment, and integration services for on-demand and variable-data printing applications.
“? XSYS Print Solutions, which provides narrow-web inks to printers in the tag and label industry worldwide.
“? Flint Group Printing Plates, which offers specialized photopolymer plates for flexographic and letterpress printing, plus solvents and equipment for plate processing.
“? Flint Group Pigments & Resins, which combines operations in North America, Europe, and China to offer dry and flushed pigments, pigment dispersions, resins, chemical additives, colored chips, and varnishes.

Headquartered in Luxembourg, the Flint Group has more than 150 facilities worldwide and employs nearly 8,000 people. Estimated 2005 revenues are $US 2.7 billion.
