on the use of water based inks, one of
the fastest growing segments of flexo
inks,” says Vincent DiTrolio, president
and founder of the school. “This perspective
gives our certified graduates a
definitive advantage over untrained or
under-trained personnel in the industry.
The result is a larger pool of
skilled press operators.”
“I have a strong belief that the
future of our industry is going to
depend upon all of us banding together
and supporting a training center
such as DiTrolio Flexographic Institute,”
