With three Flexofit seminars in Port Louis, Mauritius on 20th October, Johannesburg, South Africa on 24th and in Windhoek, Namibia on 27th October, Flexofit answered to an ever rising demand to professional education in the printing industry in Africa. The local expert audience in all three countries attended the seminars with industry speakers from international companies like Chespa, DuPont, Esko, tesa, Renzmann and Windmoeller & Hoelscher among others.
The first Flexofit Seminar took place in Cape Town,  South Africa last year. This year a number of customers from the Johannesburg region met with European industry experts from leading printing industry companies again.
The 2nd Flexofit Mauritius Seminar was well received. Solvent and water based inks were specially discussed in addition to the peculiar challenges in this rather small market, where short runs in printing material are a challenge for cost efficiency and meeting market demands.
Glen Robbins from tesa, a company in adhesives, gave an overview of “tesas Print and Web Processing soft print and splicing assortment”. Last presentation from Heike Beenen, global marketing manager at Renzmann from Germany was “Cleaning and solvent distillation in flexo printing companies”, which is also an environmental issue. For 2018 a Flexofit seminar is planned for Durban as requested both from the international speakers as well as by many customers.
Growth in the Namibian market prompted the international speakers to get a firsthand impression of this emerging market. For 2018 Flexofit Seminars are planned to take place in Africa and Asia, watch our website for more information
