Three-day event marks opening of new technical facility

AM Labels recently marked the opening of its new Technical Experience Centre with a three-day event.

The occasion, which was sponsored by printing technology manufacturer Epson, took place at the firm’s head office in Northamptonshire and brought together a number of the print and packaging industry’s suppliers and manufacturers, as well as current and prospective customers.

Councillor Keli Watts, the mayor of Kettering, gave a speech and congratulated AM Labels as well as cutting a ribbon to officially open the new facility. AM Labels’ MD Tony Mariani and sales and marketing manager Brendon Bass presented the history of the company and spoke about the benefits that the Technical Experience Centre will offer.

Visitors were invited to have their own personalised cookies printed using the DTM Eddie printer, which utilises edible ink to print full-colour photos, logos, text and other designs directly onto the surface of food items. The AM Labels team also demonstrated a variety of products from its portfolio, enabling guests to learn more about the range of labelling, barcoding, RFID, robotics and automation equipment on offer.

Tony Mariani said, “The opening of our new Technical Experience Centre was a great success, and on behalf of the entire AM Labels team, I would like to say a big thank you to everyone that joined us throughout the three-day event. We are also extremely grateful for the support received from several of the industry’s leading manufacturers and suppliers, and a special thank you to Epson for being our event sponsor.

“Since relocating to new premises at the beginning of 2022, we have invested heavily in the creation and build of our Technical Experience Centre. Now that the space has officially opened, it will act as a hub for businesses across the UK to experience demonstrations of the latest and most innovative technology available on the market, including colour label printers, applicators, finishing machines, barcode scanning and RFID equipment, along with and robotics and automation.”
