The new division president will be responsible for Flint Group’s global packaging and narrow web strategy.

Flint Group has named Doug Aldred president of its Packaging & Narrow Web divisions in Europe and North America. In addition to his new role, Aldred assumes responsibility for the global packaging and narrow web strategy.

Aldred joined Flint Ink in 1994 (one of the group of companies that merged to form Flint Group) as a manufacturing manager within Canada, and in 1998 was appointed general manager of sheetfed products in Europe. With Flint-Schmidt he became global VP for the sheetfed division, and in 2005 was appointed VP for packaging in EMEA.

“Doug has played a key role in growing the European business in his position as VP for Packaging EMEA and was instrumental in the successful acquisitions of Torda and in Russia. Under Doug’s leadership, we have also established an important joint venture in Turkey and an international key account strategy,” says CEO Antoine Fady.

Flint Group’s Packaging & Narrow Web division offers a wide range of inks and coatings used for packaging and label printing, including conventional and UV curing flexo inks and gravure inks for wide web packaging and conventional printing, as well as UV curing narrow web inks for flexographic, lithographic, letterpress, and screen printing.
