Ahmed Hilami began his career in the late '90s as a print dealer in the traditional print industry. In the 2000s, while Amazon did not exist yet, Ahmed Hilami feels very quickly the link between the internet and the print, more precisely the e-commerce which is only at its beginnings. After a few years of web development, Ahmed Hilami launched in 2007 Flyer.be, the first online print shop in Belgium. Flyer produces most of its production itself through automation and the link with its IT platform. Quickly, it opens the French market with Flyer.fr and the Netherlands with Flyer.NL.
The Flyer group is growing very fast and the notoriety is becoming very strong in Belgium. Flyer.be has democratized and completely automated the online ordering process for all printed products.
In 2012, Flyer acquired Printconcept.com, an online printing company specializing in high-end and luxury products for B2B.
In 2015, Flyer expands and moved in Brugge in a plant of 12,000 m2.

Flyer.be is considering as the on line printer of reference and the leader in the Belgian market.
