Marvaco, a report house with seven facilities and 90 employees, has successfully concluded the final audit of Flint Group’s FlexoExpert certification program at its platemaking unit in Sunne, Sweden.
‘Marvaco got one of the highest scores a repro house can get as first time qualification,’said Friedrich von Rechteren, global commercial VP, Flint Group.
The other Marvaco sites are undergoing the certification process.
During a six-month process consisting of three main steps – evaluation, implementation and training, and auditing – FlexoExpert allows platemakers to further optimize their workflow to make more reliable and consistent plates.
During the last half a year Marvaco implemented the program and passed the final audit with a top score. Marvaco’s three platemaking sites in the Nordic countries are going through the standardization program of the flexo platemaking process.
Jan Viberg, general manager of Marvaco Sweden, said: ‘Most of the colleagues have contributed to this success, but the main and most dedicated work is done by the plate room personnel as they have adapted this into our ordinary quality processes. We are naturally very proud of the result. We have always heard from our suppliers that our unit in Sunne has high standards in flexo plate production and we are very happy that this now has been officially verified. The FlexoExpert program will be used as our common platform to get the same level of standards across our plate production units.’
