The Label Printers Invests in Four Systems to Increase Capacity
The Label Printers has, over a period of nearly 15 years, been building and expanding its manufacturing and knowledge base in anti-counterfeiting technologies. This track record of experience in the fast-changing brand protection market has allowed the company to develop strength and expertise in a broad array of variable imaging technologies. The new inkjet system allows The Label Printers to keep pace with customers’ needs for track-and-trace types of system options.
Tom Erickson, plant superintendent, was part of the team that brought this investment option to management. “Certain features of our old inkjet system created a time consuming process, and a potential quality issue. The new Domino system gives us a smoother operation, with less down time. From a manufacturing perspective, it improves our product quality and gives our press operators better control of the process.”
Lori Campbell, chief of operations, adds, “I am ecstatic to work for an organization that doesn’t preach ‘continuous improvement’ as a worn-out sales pitch, but actively pursues it…and backs it up by making these well-considered investments. I am very proud of our teams for their dedicated research and recommendations. We know exactly what each of these purchases will provide in terms of quality, efficiency, sustainability, and most importantly, alignment with our customers’ needs.”
Bill Kane believes that these investments point to the long term strength of the company. “We have managed the company to be able to make these [continued equipment] acquisitions, so that we can better serve our customers and position ourselves for managed growth.”
