After having been honored as distributor of the year in 2003, Macchingraf SRL, Italy, took the trophy again for 2011. Since the end of the 1960s, Maccingraf SRL has worked in a close partnership with Flint Group and predecessor companies respectively. Initially Maccingraf had imported nyloprint printing plates for the Italian market, but within a short period of time, Macchingraf included nyloflex printing plates to its sales program. In recent years, the company has considerably extended its market share in Italy.
“Macchingraf SRL was able to increase sales with nyloflex and nyloprint printing plates by 50% within a short time," says Frauke Meissner, vice president sales operations Flint Group Flexographic Products. "With its innovative and extremely market and service orientated approach, the company steadily gained market share and today is the leading supplier of printing systems and consumables in a country where print shops and trade houses are known for the highest standards.”
Luca Fattorossi, commercial director for Macchingraf SRL is delighted to receive the award once again: ”Customer orientation and teamwork play a big part in our company, and the success proves us right. Being voted for the second time as the Flint Group Flexographic Products distributor of the year is a demonstration of our expertise and our high quality level, of which we are particularly proud.”
Maccingraf SRL belongs to the international Staples Group employing more than 90,000 people worldwide, and with whom Flint Group also works closely together in other countries.
