Flint Group's Centres of Excellence

Welcome to Global Colour Centre

Changing the world... one colour at a time.

Flint Group provides centralised colour matching for key customer partners throughout Europe, North America and Latin America

Flint Group understands the pressing need for colour management – brand owners and international printers and converters are seeking solutions that can reproduce consistent and spot-on colours.

Flint Group’s Global Colour Centre was established in 2010 in response to the market’s need for an effective, 24-hour colour management service. This digital communication platform can support Flint Group’s customers around the world by creating and matching colour standards that represent the closest achievable colour on any given substrate and print process in a consistent fashion.

Yes – it’s really true! And, it’s happening now!


Imagine a world where one database contains thousands of standards and recipes; where response is fast and effective and in exchangeable formats. Imagine a centralised process where all colour requests are managed according to individual objective standards using strict and detailed procedures.

Yes – this world exists! It is Flint Group’s colour management world!

Supporting our business partners is our focus...

Packaging converters
can control and achieve their colour specification from a centrally managed database with a specific focus to support and maintain the colour demands from brand owners.

Brand owners are provided the tools and communication for accurate and consistent global representation of their colours regardless of the application.

The world just got a lot smaller! A centralised location supports global Packaging requirements...

Flint Group’s GCC supports its printer and brand owner partners with the tools and services to address colour communication goals and challenges – no matter where in the world they are located.

Located in Lodz, Poland, the GCC team is dedicated to supporting customers, brand owners, and internal staff everywhere!
