Faster print turnaround from National Flexible

21 January 2014

In a new development, National Flexible has strengthened its offering to an expanding customer base for pre-printed films, with the installation of in-house cromalin production facilities.

The Yorkshire-based company was formed 20 years ago, initially as a distributor of plain, unprinted films, sacks, pallet wrap and various packaging sundries. Since then the company’s unique business model has seen its portfolio grow and evolve into the industry’s leading one-stop-shop for flexographic, gravure and digitally printed films.

National Flexible now provides flexible packaging to companies such as Premier Foods, Unilever, Reckitt Benckiser and Nestlé, who are among the most prominent FMCG manufacturers and brands in the UK.

As National Flexible’s market share of printed films has grown over the years, so has the extent of its printing capacity. With presses based across the UK, Europe and the Middle East, it offers fast turnaround on variable run-lengths underpinned by its investment in stock of base materials for printing, lamination and slitting.

The latest installation of GMG proofing equipment gives National Flexible the ability to remotely print colour calibrated proofs on-site which are matchable to any of the printing presses in their portfolio.

The proofs can be printed directly onto a range of substrates including clear, white and metallised films, allowing for even faster turnaround of print jobs for customers.

National Flexible is the UK’s largest distributor of polypropylene, laminates and special films. Its custom-built factory is purpose made to be compliant with the latest BRC standards for food-grade packaging, which has helped it to become well-known as the preferred supplier of packaging films for the food, bakery, snack, confectionery and contract packing industries.
