Flint Group is consolidating local ink manufacturing to its modern Dandenong facility and utilising third party logistics to support the customer base throughout Australia and New Zealand.
Sales and support staff in Sydney, including both consumable and Xeikon operations, will be moving to a centrally located facility in Rhodes, near Ryde.
