Macfarlane Label, with label manufacturing facilities in the UK, Ireland and Sweden, invested in a 10-color Nilpeter FA-17 to meet increasing workloads within the company’s regular product offerings.
The new press joins a fleet of five other Nilpeter presses.
Macfarlane Labels provides self-adhesive and resealable labels to a wide range of sectors including food, health and beauty, household products, beverages and pharmaceuticals.
Following the COVID-19 outbreak, the company has seen a growth in demand for labeling and packaging products, creating both challenges and opportunities that have lead to the acquisition of the new 10-color Nilpeter FA-17.
“This significant investment for our label business in Kilmarnock is in response to increasing and changing demands from our customers and their consumers,” said Angela Campbell, resealable labels director at Macfarlane Labels. “This latest technology in printing produces the highest label quality to ensure that our customers’ brands are perfectly presented. The press allows us to meet our customers’ ever-changing needs and demands, led by innovative marketing trends."
“It is great to see Macfarlane pushing forward with new technology in the midst of a pandemic. Macfarlane has a fleet of Nilpeter presses, and the FA-17 brings the latest technology to allow greater production and less waste,” added Nick Hughes, managing director, Nilpeter Ltd.
