British label converter A4 Labels has installed its second Daco D350S sheet label converter to further increase its production speed and capacity while expanding the product portfolio.
A4 Labels has been selling on the market since 2009, however, in 2018 the company took control of its own supply chain by investing in machinery that enabled producing the entire portfolio of products at its Fishergate’s premises in West Sussex. At this time, A4 Labels also sought relationships with other label retailers and have since become a supplier of sheet labels to the trade.
‘As a trade buyer of A4 Labels for the best part of a decade, we understood exactly what label resellers need,’ commented Colin Hawker, managing director of A4 Labels. ‘Namely an excellent quality product, at a competitive price, but as importantly, they needed speed. At our warehouse, we hold over 500 lines of stocked size and material combinations and this means we can offer a next day service.
‘This promise even includes full pallets if ordered by noon. To ensure we could keep this promise going forward, we needed the extra capacity that a second machine would offer, and after a trouble free two years with our first D350S and over 12 million linear meters converted, there was never a question that our second machine would also be supplied by Daco Solutions.’
‘The new machine has enabled us to expand our range by offering SRA3 Labels, the format sought by the print industry,’ continued Hawker. ‘By offering SRA3 labels we are able to unlock clients in markets we have not worked with before. As with our A4 sheets, we expect to dispatch most of our SRA3 orders within 24 hours, even when we have to make them to order.’
