Macfarlane Labels provides high quality, 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 of labelling and packaging products, creating both challenges and opportunities that have lead to the acquisition of the new 10-colour Nilpeter FA-17.
Customer Brands Perfectly Presented
“This significant investment for our label business in Kilmarnock is in response to increasing and changing demands from our customers and their consumers,” commented 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,” added Campbell.
Pushing Forward During a Pandemic
“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,” says Nick Hughes, Managing Director, Nilpeter Ltd.
Nilpeter’s FA-Line is the most versatile flexo press on the market – designed to accommodate the printer’s ever-growing needs, and built around the modern print operator, with an intuitive user interface and fully mobile print controls. A benchmark of flexibility and modularity, the FA allows printers to enhance the performance of their press with Value-Adding Units, Application and Automation Packages, according to application needs and budget.
