There’s no better way to keep abreast of the latest product innovations and technologies in the label industry than to see them for yourself. Recently, several of us from Supermarket Labels were able to do just that during the 2012 Labelexpo in Chicago.
Labelexpo is the world’s largest event for the label and product decoration industry. It’s held in the U.S. every two years and we always look forward to it. It’s an excellent opportunity to learn more about advances in our industry and how we can incorporate them in our business to better serve our customers. We see everything from the latest technologies in digital printing to new paper combinations. Then we ask ourselves, “How can we capitalize on these new innovations and opportunities?”
This year was no exception. We purchased on site an amazing new rewinder manufactured in England. This rewinder makes thousands of adjustments per second so that each label roll is consistent from beginning to end. This advantage is passed onto our customers. The greater consistency in our label rolls makes it easier for them in their application processes.
We’re continually investing in ways to improve our manufacturing capabilities and product quality, especially when we can bring those improvements to our customers.
