Flint Group Invests $2 million in New Inks Facility in Atlanta

Monday, March 24, 2008

Press release from the issuing company

PLYMOUTH, MI (March 21, 2008) - Faster turn-around time for customers, convenient and controlled product testing, and streamlined distribution and warehousing. These are just some of the benefits Flint Group and its customers will gain from the new Atlanta, Georgia manufacturing facility.

The company will move into the new facility in early April, serving packaging and commercial printers.

Susan Kuchta, vice president, general manager of the packaging inks division, says, "Flint Group has been in Atlanta for over thirty years. We are committed to the customers and employees in this area, and we owe our success to them. The new facility underscores our plan to continue working here and investing in this city for a long time to come."

Plant Manager Preston Morgan notes that the move will be seamless for customers. "We'll relocate without affecting production timelines or the ability to call our offices with orders or questions. Customers won't be inconvenienced."

At 52,500 square feet, the site will accommodate solvent, water and paste manufacturing. The Lean Manufacturing design ensures an efficient workflow and maximized quality control. The site includes space to eventually expand the company's testing capabilities with a printing press for on-site product development. A large customer service laboratory will let Flint Group quickly verify raw materials and finished products, in addition to providing color matches and development work. In summary, the facility is a one-stop-shop for ordering, developing, testing, making, storing and shipping high quality printing inks.
