Stena Miljo to Distribute Flint-Schmidt Ink In Scandinavia


The graphic division of Stena Miljö AB of Gothenburg, Sweden, has signed an agreement with Flint-Schmidt GmbH & Co. KG to distribute a full range of its news inks and sheetfed offset commercial and packaging products in Sweden, Norway and Denmark.
Stena will provide complete technical and product support for Flint-Schmidt and will be the exclusive supplier of Flint-Schmidt sheetfed ink systems, including its recently enhanced Arrowstar line, in Scandinavia.

“Stena Miljö AB has been invaluable in helping us extend our products and service into the Scandinavian marketplace,” said Doug Aldred, vice president, Flint-Schmidt sheetfed division. “As with Flint-Schmidt, Stena’s sales force has in-depth knowledge of our ink systems and a strong dedication to good customer service. Right from the start, Stena set ambitious targets for their ink business and established short-term sales goals, which they are already surpassing.”
Stena Miljö’s graphic division supplies offset printing plates and blanket systems to commercial printers, packagers and converters throughout Scandinavia.
Both Flint-Schmidt and Stena Miljö AB are firmly committed to serving the print industry with environmentally sound products and services. All Flint-Schmidt inks distributed by Stena in Scandinavia qualify for Swan Labels, a Nordic eco-labelling system. In addition, Stena Miljö’s parent company, Stena Metall AB, is a leader in recycling and environmental services.
