The 12,000 square meter automated ink production facility and technical laboratory is located near Durban on the Eastern side of South Africa and is well positioned to support key customers in the region and throughout Africa.

Fully functioning

The transition to the new manufacturing facility started in late 2018. As of January 2019, the operation is fully functioning and supporting Packaging Inks’ customers with solvent-based products without disruption. By the end of 2019, water-based production will be operational at this same site. Along with the manufacture of finished inks for supply to the Durban market, Flint Group’s facility in Westmead produces bases for supply to its blending sites in Johannesburg, Cape Town and East London.

Flint Group’s new facility in Westmead houses the latest and most modern, automated, manufacturing equipment and a state of the art testing laboratory – making this one of the most advanced Flint Group facilities in the world.
