Bischof + Klein receives FlexoExpert certification
The Bischof + Klein Group (Lengerich, Germany) is one of the leading European complete solution providers for flexible packaging and technical films from plastic and composites. The product programme comprises the entire portfolio of flexible packaging – from traditional industrial packaging to consumer packaging and specialty films for technical applications.
The concept of sustainability has a long tradition in the family-run company: Keeping the balance between economy, social issues and ecology was the main motivation for participating in the certification programme FlexoExpert, which is managed by the Luxembourg-based print consumables producer Flint Group. Since spring 2017, the Bischof + Klein site in Konzell, Germany, may now officially call itself FlexoExpert.
During a six-month process that consisted of the three main stages evaluation and training, implementation, and audit, the FlexoExpert programme offers plate manufacturers the instruments that are necessary to further optimise their workflow and supply continuously reliable printing plates of highest consistency. Under the directions of a Flint Group expert, Bischof + Klein implemented the programme and received the certification for its printing plate processing after a successful audit.
“The FlexoExpert certification is another building block in the standardisation of the process parameters with a simultaneous increase in quality in high definition flexo print,” said Helmut Wenzl, operations manager print at the B+K site in Konzell.
