Willenhall, West Midlands, 24th March 2014 – West Midlands digital label leader CS Labels are continuing to develop and invest as they announce another stage in their growth plan.

The company has continued to grow 20% year-on-year. Already the largest digital printer in Europe to use Xeikon technology, MD Simon Smith has made another giant step forward this quarter with investment into yet another large digital label press, to join the existing three that are working flat out at the site. The new press, a Xeikon 3300, is unique as it can utilise revolutionary ‘ICE’ toner which expands their reach to also cover extremely high quality PE (Polyethylene) labels that are often used on toiletries, as well as other heat sensitive materials such as thermal labels. CS Labels are the first printer in the UK to utilise this solution.

In line with the company’s recent accreditation of ISO 14001 in January 2014 for environmental commitment, ICE toner, like the other toners in use, has no VOC emissions, combined with the fact that digital printing is inherently cleaner and more environmentally friendly than other techniques such as flexographic or lithographic.

The expansion will cope with the growing demand for digital print and increase production capacity by 25%. A further four jobs have been created in the manufacturing facility and office, to compliment the already strong recruitment drive that the company has enjoyed during the past year.

Managing Director Simon Smith said “Digital print is really opening up various other avenues for us, and pushing boundaries is the foundation of our success. The new press, with the addition of the ICE technology means that we can print on substrates never thought possible before, and fulfil the huge demand that we have had for these kinds of products already.  Making sure our customers brand really stands out by harnessing the power of digital print is still our mantra, and like everything these days digital doesn’t ever stand still. I’m pleased to say we are continuing to stay on top of our game, and myself and the whole team look forward to even more innovation in the coming years as digital continues to grow and grow.”

Simon will be presenting a session entitled ‘Adding Value in the Labels Sector’ at 12.30pm in Theatre 2, on 28th March at the IPEX Exhibition, Excel, London.
