Flint Group announced the purchase of the remaining shares in Tintas Graficas Vencedor (TGV) from Corporacion Peruana de Productos Quimicos S.A. (CPPQ).
Located in Lima, Peru, TGV is a joint venture between Flint Group (49.95% Flint Group GmbH) and CPPQ. The main activity of TGV is the production and sales of liquid packaging inks (solvent- and water-based) as well as the resale of narrow web, flexographic plates and sheetfed inks.
