BARODA, India -- In order to meet the increased demand and to further improve its service to packaging converters, Flint Group is building a new manufacturing site for packaging and narrow web inks in Savli near Baroda in India.

Flint Group, a supplier to the Printing and Packaging Industries, has been present in India since 2001, but the companies roots go back much further than this. "Thanks to strong and long-term partnerships with our customers, Flint Group can look back on decades of innovations and leading product developments", commented George Lyle, VP - Packaging and Narrow Web Asia, Flint Group. "Our most complete portfolio of product offerings is well known all over the world and investing into a new site in India was the next logical step to prepare the grounds for continuous growth over the next years".

With a rapidly growing packaging industry in India, Flint Group is keen to cater for customers in this market. "We already have an ISO 9001-2000 certified mother plant for packaging inks in Bangalore and blending units in Baroda, Noida and Savli, supported by depots at Pondicherry, Kolkata, Hyderabad and Navi Mumbai, " said Upal Roy, GM, Flint Group India. He continued, "We are proud to soon be in a position to support the market even further with our new plant in Savli." The plant is currently being built and will meet European standards on processes and safety. It will consist of separate areas for the manufacturing of water-based, toluene based and toluene free solvent-based inks.

Next to the expansion of its packaging inks manufacturing operations in Poland and the acquisition of Torda, this is another important investment in a growth region for Flint Group's Packaging and Narrow Web division this year demonstrating its commitment for continuous growth in the packaging segment.
