Progressive Label Manufacturing purchases a Mark Andy Performance Series

Progressive Label Manufacturing has purchased a Mark Andy P5 Performance Series Press with UV/LED technology as part of a factory expansion program.

The owner Dave Carr started his packaging and label career more than 26 years ago, driving place to place growing his label business from the ground up. Carr has pushed for a low carbon footprint before it became mainstream.

Progressive Label Manufacturing plans to continue a tradition of eco-consciousness with its new investment in the Performance Series. ‘Not only will the UV LED technology allow us to print food-safe labels, but we will be able to cut down on waste by over 50 percent,’ said Carr.

Progressive takes pride in their safety and compliance advancements, quality control, and customer service. They are Nestle and Swiss compliant with their low migration inks. Progressive Label Manufacturing also invested in modern pharmaceutical grade quality control technology. Since then they have also doubled their factory footprint. They plan to continue to be an industry leader in environmentally-friendly label manufacturing.

With their Performance Series, Progressive Label will be able to print labels four times faster, while also having the flexibility to print everything from a sophisticated label to film packaging decoration. Once the Performance Series press is installed, Progressive plans to continue to support their current customers while breaking into new markets.

‘I’ve been Mark Andy all the way through,’ said Carr, speaking to his company’s relationship with Mark Andy and loyalty to the brand. After their long history of partnering with Mark Andy, they see themselves investing in Mark Andy technology in the future to continue to support their customers with the best technology on the market.

Carr said that Progressive Label has doubled in size in the last three years. This growth, assisted by the Mark Andy 2200, helped them reach the point where they decided to expand and update equipment.

Carr said: ‘We are called Progressive Label Manufacturing because we are ahead of the curve in technology and service.’
