Hub Labels, one of the leading US-based pressure sensitive adhesives market players, has recently announced that it has invested in a fully equipped MPS EF press – a highly automated and high-quality multi-substrate flexographic press that is used for label production and flexible packaging printing. Reportedly, the investments will help the company to produce high quality linerless labels.
As per sources, Hub labels operates a 110,000 square feet facility in Hagerstown, Maryland and is engaged in manufacturing linerless labels and pressure sensitive products for the local businesses such as the Perdue Farms and other US-based customers.
For those unfamiliar, Perdue Farms Inc., is a Maryland-based producer & distributor of agricultural products and food. The company offers organic pork, chicken, and turkey products to the consumers through food service, retailers, and distributors worldwide.
If reports are to be believed, the linerless label technology serves as a significant environmentally friendly option that eliminates the liner found on the traditional pressure-sensitive labels. Industry experts deem that the addition of the new flexo press will complement the Hub Labels in expanding its current service portfolio, customer base, and application scope in pressure sensitive adhesives market.
According to Label & Narrow Web, Hub Labels is one amongst the only two companies in the U.S. to offer linerless labels and flexible packaging printing solutions to its customers. The addition of the flexographic press will provide the company with the suitable ability to print myriad range of substrates such as the shrink sleeves, paper, thin film, and flexible packaging.
The President of Hub Labels, Thomas Dahbura, said the company is extremely excited to offer new and advanced options to the customers to help them develop their brand. He further added that the relation between the company, a linerless labels & pressure sensitive adhesives industry player, and Perdue Farms is a part of the company’s new growth strategy of conducting business with other regional companies in Maryland.
