Flint Adds Its Name to Eston Chimica

PLYMOUITH, MN | In December 2017 Flint Group announced the acquisition of Eston Chimica, a supplier of inks and coatings to package printers in Italy and Southern Europe that manufactures and sells water-based inks for flexo and gravure applications. The company supports key paper and board applications, such as corrugated, shopping bags, paper bags, and various other water-based print jobs. Effective February 1, 2018, the new company name is Eston Chimica, a Flint Group Company. 

Doug Aldred, president packaging inks for Flint Group, says, “Flint Group is extremely pleased, and proud, to add Eston Chimica to their family and understands the importance of the Eston Chimica brand. The respect, customer loyalty, and name recognition of Eston Chimica weighed heavily on the company’s decision to retain the Eston Chimica brand alongside the Flint Group name. The identities, presented together, highlight the new and combined strength of the companies.”

Nicola Mellon, general manager paper and board Italy and former CEO of Eston Chimica, says, “Flint Group recognizes the strong value in the Eston Chimica name. The entire team of Eston Chimica has built an organization which has grown, prospered, and is well known in the paper and board business segment. We look forward to a strong relationship going forward—one that benefits our internal staff and provides best in class products, services, and solutions to the packaging industry in Europe and beyond.”
