Flint launches new division with Xeikon

Packaging print consumables and services provider Flint Group has combined its flexographic business with Xeikon Prepress to form a new division.

Operating with the tagline ‘Be Brilliant’, XSYS will build on the joint work by Flint and Xeikon within the flexographic and letterpress markets in recent years.

XSYS will integrate a range of solutions and technologies, including nyloflex flexographic solvent and thermal plates and equipment, nyloprint letterpress plates and equipment, nylosolv, rotec sleeves adapters, and ThermoFlexX TfxX Imagers.

Dagmar Schmidt, president of XSYS, comments: “With the integration of Xeikon Prepress with Flint Group Flexographic, we are now connecting the dots and are implementing an important step of our strategy to become a full solution provider for the flexographic prepress industry.

“The name derives from ThermoFlexX, nyloflex, Xpress and other brands that feature the X, combined with systems to form the name XSYS.”

We are confident that by joining them together, we will further strengthen that position

The new division will be split into three sub-divisions – prepress, plates and sleeves – as part of the new setup.

“We are confident that by joining them together, we will further strengthen that position,” Schmidt says.

“Our division is primarily focusing on the prepress part of the value chain complemented by sleeves, which gives us excellent access to the printing press room.”
