Faster printing turnaround for films one-stop-shop


National Flexible has strengthened its offering of 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. It has since grown and now styles itself as 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 Nestle, who are among the most prominent FMCG manufacturers and brands in the UK. As its 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, the company offers fast turnaround on variable run lengths underpinned by its investment in its 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 its 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. The company is the UK’s largest distributor of polypropylene, laminates and special films. National’s custom-built factory is compliant with the latest BRC standards for food-grade packaging and it has become well-known as a preferred supplier of packaging films for the food, bakery, snack, confectionary and contract packing industries.
