Through evaluation and training, implementation, and audit, the FlexoExpert Certification Program provides a platform by which platemakers can reassess and refine their workflow processes to ensure standardized platemaking across all customer locations and geographies. With the guidance of a Flint Group expert, Grafica Villalba implemented the program and passed the final audit to earn the honor of FlexoExpert Certification of its platemaking process. The certification serves as evidence to its customers that the company utilizes best practices in flexo platemaking, and it reportedly conveys to printers that they can count on Grafica Villalba to reliably provide consistent, high quality printing plates.

Adalberto Villalba, director general of Grafica Villalba, says, “The program offers a methodical approach to the standardization of platemaking procedures, which enhances our accuracy when producing plates—especially when multiple locations are involved. This further ensures our customers that they will get the same plates every time they order, no matter where they are located, and the efficiencies gained in utilizing these best practices ultimately affect our bottom line.”
