Flint Group cements its position in South Africa

Flint Group Flexographic has established a dedicated sales organization in South Africa to directly serve customers in this region

Flint Group Flexographic, a provider of photopolymer plates and plate processing equipment, has established a dedicated sales organization in South Africa to directly serve customers in the region.

For more than 22 years Kemtek Imaging Systems has been supporting Flint Group Flexographic to serve the South African market and to represent the nyloflex, nyloprint, rotec and ThermoflexX brands. However, Flint Group Flexographic is keen to roll up the sleeves and focus on a direct connection with the customers in South Africa offering one-stop-shop approach. Customers in the region will now be able to purchase printing plates, sleeves and adapters directly, including packaging inks and narrow web inks. 

‘We very appreciate Kemtek’s long-term support in South Africa. As a global company serving the packaging and printing industry, we are excited to take the next step and serve the market directly with our cohesive offering for pre-press from now on,’ commented Friedrich von Rechteren, global commercial vice president, flexographic at Flint Group Flexographic Products. 

‘This step allows us to provide our customers in South Africa the best possible support and expertise. Additionally, our customers benefit from existing distribution channels within the premises of other Flint Group divisions to cover most effectively all areas in South Africa and neighboring countries,’ added von Rechteren.

The distribution centers of Flint Group Flexographic are strategically located in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban allows the company to deliver its printing plates and plate processing equipment fast and efficiently across the country. 

‘We are fortunate enough, not only to leverage know-how and expertise within the different divisions of our organization, but also to optimize our warehouses and distribution networks, to run them lean and resourcefully. As part of our new sales team in South Africa, we are happy to announce the hiring of Adriaan Cronje, Clive Jonathan, and Dale Kreusch from Kemtek. This provides continuity to our customers,’ added Holger Neuman, director, distributors EE/MEA at Flint Group Flexographic Products.
