Reflex Labels teams up with Flint and Valetech

Reflex Labels, one of the UK's leading label suppliers has entered into a long-term partnership with Flint Group, combining state-of-the-art ink technology with Valetech dispensing equipment. After evaluating competitive ink systems, Flint Group's Flexocure Force UV ink range was chosen based on print quality, improved mileage and on-press performance on a wide variety of substrates. Flexocure FORCE is manufactured by Flint Group in accordance with EuPIA Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) for the production of packaging inks formulated for use on Non-Food contact surfaces for food packaging.

The latest Valetech IDS25 16-head dispense kit has been installed at the recently purchased Superior Labels plant in Boston - this brings the number of UV sites in UK to five, adding to Mansfield, Leicester, Leeds and Newcastle. Reflex Group has also chosen Flint Group as its partner at its newly acquired Flexible Packaging company in Telford, formerly known as Cropak, using the Flint PluriPrint NDT range of solvent based universal inks producing printed flexible films, bags and pouches.

Ian Kendall, managing director of the fast growing Reflex company commented, ‘With its latest UV flexo ink series Flexocure Force Flint Group has proven again its leading position as a key partner to the Narrow Web industry. We have ambitious plans for the business so we must rely on key suppliers to ensure right first time quality for our customers - this partnership secures that comfort level.’

Reflex Labels is an independent supplier printing labels with the latest UV flexo and water based technologies and Flexible Packaging using solvent based flexo ink systems. For more information, please visit: www.flintgrp.com
