Flint Group opens new facility in Istanbul for packaging inks division
Wednesday, 27 December, 2017, 08 : 00 AM [IST]
Flint Group will continue its leadership position in the packaging inks segment with the inauguration of its new manufacturing and distribution facility in the cosmopolitan district of Beylikduzu in Istanbul, Turkey.

This facility, which covers an area of 3,800sq m, is just 13km from the main container terminal on the European side of Turkey, and is well positioned for exports to the surrounding markets in the Middle-East.

Kim Melander, vice-president, sales, Europe, the Middle-East and Africa (EMEA), and global strategy, paper and board, stated, “Flint Group’s paper and board business has been a local supplier in Turkey and the neighbouring regions since 2008, and our team has been satisfying customers’ requirements with state-of-the-art manufacturing capabilities and expert local service for nearly 10 years.”

“This additional investment not only solidifies the group’s dedication to the Turkish market, but also confirms its promise to grow together with its customers in this key emerging market,” he added.

Krzysztof Struszczak, operations director, packaging inks, Eastern Europe, added, “The acquisition of this new facility was initially, and strategically, planned for Flint Group’s water-based paper and board business segment.”

“However, it soon became clear that we should combine with other key segments supplying all needs of the packaging market from this one location.  Today, Flint Group’s narrow web, sheetfed and digital solutions (Xeikon) businesses have joined paper and board in this single facility,” he added.

Melander stated, “Flint Group’s aim is, of course, to provide the best and most streamlined service and support to all customers.”

“Many of our key customers purchase products from more than one of our segments.  With this expansion in Istanbul, we now have the ability to satisfy the requirements of multiple aspects of our customers’ businesses under one roof, providing a unique ability to focus on key markets and share our knowledge across the full range of the package printing business,” he added.

Flint Group is committed to providing best-in-industry services to customers in this important region - with local support, the company is able to reduce lead times resulting in improved and fortified services.

Furthermore, customers will enjoy customised products which are suitable for the warm Turkish and Middle-Eastern climates.

The facility in Beylikduzu is currently up and running – producing and shipping products to packaging printers in Turkey, and the Middle-East.
