Founded in 1988, Flexo Concepts developed a process to put a beveled tip on a UHMW doctor blade to improve safety and print quality in corrugated printing. Today, Flexo Concepts innovates and manufactures TruPoint polymer doctor blades for many markets that require roll metering or cleaning and for other specialty applications. The company does all manufacturing in Plymouth, Massachusetts, and sells almost half of its products to overseas customers.
The work we did with MassMEP really was the catalyst for a long list of continuous improvement projects we've done. We are very focused on innovation and a lot of the thinking and practices we use in the business grew from the work done in manufacturing with MassMEP.
