The Board of the European Flexographic Industry Association (EFIA) is delighted to announce the addition of a new module to its Academy online flexo training package.

The new module overviews the principles of paper based substrates. Accredited by the UK National Skills Academy, EFIA's Academy is the only flexographic printing training package available in the UK developed by industry experts for the benefit of the entire flexographic print supply chain.

Neil Jones, Managing Director Bobst and EFIA Board Member responsible for training, comments: “The Board of EFIA takes its responsibility towards furthering the skill set of the UK and European flexo industry very seriously. We see significant skills gaps emerging in the mid-term with the continuing aging of the current population of printers we have today and there has been a huge gap in the training provision for new employees entering the industry to date. Academy is a flexible, low cost, training package which supports the entire flexographic print chain from designer to retailer and the inclusion of a module on lean manufacturing comes at a really good time when all parts of the supply chain are focussing on cost out, competitiveness and of course, growth.”
