Siegwerk – Transfer of web offset business to Flint Group confirmed

GERMANY • The international suppliers of printing inks for packaging applications, labels and catalogs, and Flint Group, a global solutions provider to the packaging and print media industries, have received approval from the competition authorities to complete the planned transfer of Siegwerk’s Heatset & Newsink product lines to Flint Group, effective from 30 June 2016.

As a result of this acquisition, Siegwerk will no longer be involved in the web offset market. However, as part of a toll manufacturing agreement, Siegwerk will manufacture on behalf of Flint Group for the next three or six months to support a smooth transition for customers.

This transaction enables Siegwerk to pursue its long-term strategy of focusing on its core business in packaging printing, as the company sees significant potential in inks and coatings for labels and flexible packaging.
