Label specialist acquires new building to aid growth plans

AZTEC Label has announced the acquisition of a further 4,000 sq ft of operational space as part of the firm’s growth plans.

The manufacturer of self-adhesive label and tag products revealed the new building is directly adjacent to the company’s Kidderminster HQ.

MD Colin Le Gresley said, “This new acquisition takes our total facility footprint to almost 20,000 sq feet. I’m delighted we’ve been able to get the deal finalised despite the ongoing pandemic situation, and we’re very excited to begin the extensive refit work on the new premises as we move into the second half of the year.

“We have enjoyed enormous growth since our first labels rolled off the press in 1993. We are always moving forward, and this latest acquisition will help us continue delivering on our pledge of meeting the demands of any size job for our customers, providing quality products and always on time.”

Colin explained that work on the additional factory is likely to begin as soon as this summer, with plans to ensure it is brought up to the same standard as the main premises, which underwent a £250,000 refurbishment in 2018.

“There is a lot of work to do,” he said. “Our commitment since day one has been to using top-of the-range modern equipment and facilities across the business, and we are looking forward to revealing our plans for the new space once we have completed the necessary work.

“We have already investigated adding solar panels to the roof of the new building to increase the capacity of our own already impressive 360-panel, 98kwh solar energy system, which currently generates a significant part of our own electrical consumption. The additional power generated will help us towards meeting our long-term goal of becoming completely self-sustaining in terms of electricity use.”
