Our History

To this day, it is the goal of FlexoExport’s staff to continue the tradition of “helping” its clients find only the most suitable solution to their equipment needs. As Leon always ingrained into the sales staff, “sales is a consultative process, whereby, trust can only be attained and maintained through the dissemination of accurate and trustworthy information”. Below is a brief history of how FlexoExport began as a leader in the flexographic industry.
