Coatings and adhesives from Ashland Performance Materials, a commercial unit of Ashland Inc., that are marketed to North American narrow web label, tag, and wrapper converters will now also be available from Flint Group. Effective March 15, Ashland and Flint Group will begin a distribution and co-branding effort that calls for Flint Group to begin marketing Ashland products under a co-branded label that will carry the Flint Group trademark or trade name.

The long-term agreement enables Flint to distribute Ashland’s radiation-cure, water-based and solventless laminating adhesives and coatings in North America. Flint Group will also acquire the management of some Ashland customers and will provide them with dedicated sales, technical service, and customer service support.

“Flint Group is a world-class organization that brings a strong market presence to Ashland’s coatings and adhesive products,” said Kelly Williams, market development manager for Ashland’s Laminating Adhesives and Coatings. “Flint Group’s capabilities reach all of our key markets, and they bring top-notch commercial and technical staff with demonstrated abilities to grow business.”

“We were chosen due to our strength and stature in the printing industry,” said Susan Kuchta, vice president, North American Packaging and Narrow Web business, Flint Group. “We are proud of our broad offering and excellent customer support. This relationship adds other key products to our portfolio in order to better support package and label printers.”
