Hamilton Adhesive Labels, a UK-based manufacturer of printed and plain labels for the food and drink, industrial, household and personal care sectors, has made a significant investment to enable the business to offer what it claims is ‘the most efficient, fastest in-line production capability in Europe’.
The new technology, for plain label manufacturing, represents a £750,000 (US$989,000) investment for the business and integrates technologies from three different machine suppliers.
The new line will further enhance Hamilton’s industrial label production capabilities at its 40,000 sq ft manufacturing and warehouse facility in Leicestershire, where it currently employs 65 people.
Paul Larkin, operations director at Hamilton Adhesive Labels, said: ‘Over the past few years we have worked hard to deliver operational excellence, focused on quality and driven our competitive advantage. As a result, the business has grown significantly, reinforcing our reputation as a leading provider in the UK labels market.
‘This cutting-edge new line represents the next stage of our wide-ranging business investment program which includes increasing capacity on site and the creation of new jobs. Uniquely incorporating technologies from three different suppliers, the line delivers an up-to-the-minute solution that allows us to deliver real, tangible benefits to our customers, in terms of quality, cost and turnaround.’
He continued: ‘It is our vision for Hamilton to become the most respected privately-owned label manufacturer in the UK and we are confident that this considerable investment will help us to achieve this vision whilst delivering cost-effective, premium quality plain labels to our customers.’
