Print and apply labelling specialist Industrial Labelling Systems (ILS) is celebrating its twentieth anniversary in 2022.
During this time the company has grown to become one of the UK’s leading suppliers of automatic print and apply labellers for a variety of industries including food and drink, pharmaceutical and healthcare, automotive, e-commerce and logistics. Its wide portfolio of products includes pallet labellers, outer case and tray labellers, large character inkjet marking, and barcode inspection and validation systems. In addition, the business manufactures a wide range of plain labels and print consumables to meet clients’ labelling needs from under one roof.
From its original small office in Rochdale, ILS now operates from an 11,000sq ft facility in Middleton, near Manchester. As well as the company’s extensive UK customer base, which features leading names such as ASOS and Adidas, sales have extended across the world to Europe, the USA, South Africa and Australasia.
Central to ILS’s success has been the ability to deliver customised solutions to meet the individual requirements of each client. Its fully integrated machines deliver a fast and reliable performance for every application and are designed to provide maximum safety and protection for users. In addition, all ILS machines are supported by a network of service engineers to ensure comprehensive after-sales back-up.
Alongside its wide range of machines, ILS’s in-house label manufacturing facility produces plain white label stock and LPN (license plate number) labels for the fashion industry. Together with the availability of consumables such as ink and thermal transfer ribbons, this provides a single-source supply for customers’ print and labelling requirements.
“We pride ourselves on a fast-response and personalised service, with a consultative approach to every new enquiry,” explains ILS’s Managing Director Denis Brett. “Our longstanding expertise and experience mean we can identify the most appropriate solution and tailor it accordingly.”
Most recently ILS has enjoyed great success with its FlexWipe pallet labelling system, the first machine of its kind that is capable of operating in sub-zero temperatures down to -28oC as standard without the need for insulation or heating cabinet.
“We are very proud of our 20th anniversary milestone and what we have achieved to date,” concluded Denis. “With our committed team and the wealth of knowledge that they offer, we look forward to continuing our journey and to further successes in the future.”
