Arden Engraving, a manufacturer of complex tools and dies for the packaging sector, has moved into the label sector as it seeks to satisfy ‘a real surge in demand’ for embossing and foiling on packaging and labels.
Arden Engraving has supplied embossing and hot foiling stamping tools to the carton industry for two decades. Arden Engraving operates from three sites across the world with its head office in Greater Manchester as well as two further sites in Germany and America. It operates 20 state-of-the-art CNC engraving machines, employs a team of highly skilled CAD engineers, and runs the latest 3D technology and laser technology.
Now the company has expanded into the label market with advanced rotary and flatbed tooling.
Simon Lynch, operations and sales director at Arden Engraving, said: ‘With 20 years of experience providing high quality embossing and foil stamping tooling to the carton industry, it’s been a very natural progression for us to expand into the label market.
‘In recent years there’s been a real surge in demand for embossing and foiling on packaging and labels within the food and drinks industries, who recognize that this level of embellishment can add a sense of elevated quality and luxury to a brand.
‘However, with the number of rotary die manufacturers in the UK being limited, we are delighted to enter this bespoke market to offer a collaborative and innovative alternative to the label industry’s converters.’
Arden Engraving noted that it is already working with some of the largest global producers in both the label and packaging sectors.
Lynch added: ‘We’ve invested heavily in the latest CNC engraving machinery and advanced laser technologies to provide highly precise foil stamping tooling to help ensure our customers are making the right impression.’
The company is part of Arden Group, which also includes Arden Dies and Arden Software.
