Founded: Flint Group, one of the largest suppliers to the printing and packaging industry worldwide, was created by the union of XSYS Print Solutions and Flint Ink Corporation in late 2005.

Flint Ink was founded in the US in 1920 and grew consistently over time to become an internationally renowned supplier of printing inks and colourants. The 2007 acquisition of Day International completed the product line, substantially increasing Flint Group's global position in the non-ink pressroom consumables market.
