Flint Group announces new name for partner company Eston Chimica


Eston Chimica, a leading supplier of inks and coatings to package printers in Italy and Southern Europe, has changed its company name and logo. 

Effective February 1, 2018, the new company name is Eston Chimica, a Flint Group Company.

In December 2017, Flint Group, a prominent global supplier of inks and coatings to the printing and packaging industry, announced the acquisition of Eston Chimica, which manufactures and sells water-based inks for flexo and gravure applications. 

The company supports key Paper & Board applications, such as corrugated, shopping bags, paper bags, and various other water-based print jobs.

Doug Aldred, President Packaging Inks for Flint Group, commented, “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.”

Mr. Nicola Mellon, General Manager Paper & Board Italy and former CEO of Eston Chimica, says, “Flint Group recognises the strong value in the Eston Chimica name.

“The entire team of Eston Chimica has built an organisation which has grown, prospered, and is well known in the Paper & 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.”

Starting from early February, customers and industry partners will see the new look of the Eston Chimica brand as the partnership between the two leaders continues to grow and strengthen.
