CV Labels has worked with pharmaceutical, medical, and healthcare labeling sectors for more than 30 years. Bsed in Irvine, Scotland, the company was founded in 1989 and has more than 20 employees. It has recently expanded the production area to 2,000 sqm (21,000 sqft). It holds a PS9000:2016 accreditation developed by the Pharmaceutical Quality Group (PQG).  
 
The FB350 is an ideal choice for CV Labels and is specialized in printing pressure-sensitive labels for pharmaceutical and medical products. The new press is a 7-color flexo press with several customized features for CV Labels including an inserter making it possible to create multi-page peel and read labels using different substrates. Other custom features include UV-curing, the latest version, rail system and rail-based auxiliaries, de/re-lamination, a turnbar, re-register unit for preprinted webs, video inspection, and standard die stations. 
 
The FB-350 with this exact configuration, is the first of its kind on an FB-press in the UK.  
 
Bob Veitch, owner and managing director at CV Labels, said: ‘We have always been very pleased with the Nilpeter presses we have had so for us it was an obvious choice to add another one to our production line. Our business is growing, and we needed more volume and more colors. We got that with our new FB350. The new press gives us a number of new opportunities, and especially making it possible to create multi-page peel and read labels has been a valuable contribution.’  
 
Nick Hughes, managing director at Nilpeter, added: ‘I have known Bob for ages, and we have always had a great partnership. It’s always nice to see that our customer’s business is growing, and we are very happy to help them find the right solution in order for them to meet the constantly increasing demands of their customers. We managed to do it this time, and I am confident we will continue to do it in the future as well.’  
 
The partnership between CV Labels and Nilpeter dates all the way back to 1983 when Veitch visited Copenhagen, Denmark, to test a Nilpeter B-200 letterpress. Veitch, who at this time worked at another company, was stunned by what he saw in Copenhagen: ‘Honestly, I was blown away by what I saw in Denmark. The advanced technology was revolutionary compared to everything else. I consider Nilpeter as one of the top manufacturers in the world, and it matches the ambitions of CV Labels – we only want to deal with the best.’
