We have a dedicated trans-Tasman TPIM Team (Technical, Product, Innovation and Marketing) to solve problems, address opportunities and deliver fit-for-purpose outcomes.
Business as usual activity is typically about resolving a current labelling challenge such as finding a better way of achieving a desired outcome. Whereas blue sky activity is about research and development of product and service solutions that we may want to take a lead position on e.g. printed electronics and functional labels.
We work collaboratively with local and international suppliers to develop innovative solutions. Our Christchurch laboratory provides an industry-leading research and development service for our clients. All testing is completed in accordance with international FINAT or ISO standards. The laboratory team are responsible for conducting comparative and quality control tests on all new materials and products before launch – removing risk for our clients.
We have been at the forefront of environmental change within the labelling industry for some time. We were the first label manufacturer in our region to be FSC® chain of custody certified and PEFC™ certified. We were able to leverage this position to create meaningful and lasting change for good. Through a shared commitment with our supply chain we have delivered greater transparency and significantly improved the use of sustainably sourced paper materials across the labelling industry.
In conjunction with our global supply chain we have developed a broad and continually growing selection of environmentally sustainable label material options. Our range includes recycled content, renewable content, compostable and biodegradable materials. We also have materials made from renewable content like cotton, sugarcane and limestone, and also waste content like grape and citrus.
Additionally, we are committed to providing responsible and sustainable printing practices to our customers and continue to innovate to reduce waste and improve the sustainability of our processes.
Our team of label experts would be delighted to work with you to develop an innovative labelling solution to meet your needs.
