Europe: Mercian Labels, AC Labels to merge


Mercian Labels will be merging its wholly owned subsidiary AC Labels Ltd into its main business.

Since its purchase by Mercian Labels in 2010, AC Labels’ reputation for producing high integrity variable data and barcodes has resulted in them being awarded the prestigious IPIA Trade Printer of the Year award twice in two years.

In October 2012, the company also received accolades for producing the world’s longest barcode label that is  40 m long.

From 2010, AC Labels has provided barcode solutions to blue chip companies and institutions, mainly via the print trade, in industry setting lead times.

Mercian Labels itself provides many millions of labels annually to both the print trade and end users, using a combination of digital, flexographic and hotfoil presses to ensure a bespoke labelling solution that spans all industries.
