“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.
“Flint Group is a strong new leader in all sectors of the worldwide printing, packaging, and colorants industries. It brings together long traditions of superior products, expert service and a commitment to meeting customer needs in all of the major markets of the world,” said Dave Frescoln, CEO of the new company.
Speaking of the new name, Mr. Frescoln said that the selection 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.
“Customers, employees, and the industry need to be able to make sense of this new company," Mr. Frescoln said. "‘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.”
