Day International to show pressroom products at drupa

Press release from the issuing company

(May 07, 2008) Day’s exhibit will be located in Hall 16 - Stand A21 Following the acquisition by Flint Group in 2007, Day will take its place on Flint Group’s stand B (Stand A being located in Hall 5 C38). Day provides premier consumables through its broad range of pressroom products and technical services, while our technical service and product portfolio provide a high value solution enabling today’s printer to achieve optimum cost efficiency and print quality by integrating consumables that are compatible and complementary.

Day and Flint Group Flexographic Products are demonstrating their commitment to the printing and packaging industry with high-performance products and services at stand A21 in Hall 16. Day International has added to its already excellent product portfolio (dayGraphica, davidM, Varn, NDI) with the acquisition of Duco and more recently HDP.

Duco has manufactured the Dunlop and Cow brands of offset blankets for over 75 years and sell to over 80 countries. Having pioneered many of the major advances in blanket development, Duco was the first to develop compressible structures using micro sphere technology, which the majority of blanket manufacturers have since adopted. HDP is an established manufacturer of pressroom chemicals.

The company’s global distribution covers 5 continents. It offers a full range of pressroom consumable products to their customer base including printing blankets, pressroom chemistry and press spare parts as well as an efficient waste management and collection scheme.
