Corrugated retail and shelf-ready packaging specialist TRM Packaging has opened a new colour lab, under a partnership with Flint Group.

The installation and investment in the colour lab is said to form part of a new five-year partnership between both companies.

The colour lab includes complete integrated colour management services, along with quality and process reporting software.

It will enable TRM to directly connect with Flint Group’s European Colour Centre (ECC) in Lodz, Poland.

TRM print development manager James Jolley said: "The addition of this colour lab is yet another indicator of the focus TRM puts into providing the highest print qualities and products for our customers.

"The new facility will allow TRM’s qualified technicians to produce high-specification digital print swatches and conduct assessments of inks, technical mediums and varnishes in-house, which will reduce lead times associated with the process.
