Baker Labels are excited to announce that they have picked up the keys and started work on expanding their premises at Hubert Road in Brentwood. Bakers has been in their state of the art, purpose built factory in Brentwood, Essex since the move from Walthamstow in 2011 and has been rapidly increasing production capacity, turnover and staff recruitment ever since.
As part of his continued investment in the company, Managing Director Steve Baker saw the vacant neighbouring warehouse as an opportunity not to be missed and has some exciting plans for the extra 10,000 square feet.
‘It’s been 7 years since we moved to Brentwood and it’s been an incredibly exciting period in our history with year on year very positive investment and growth. We look forward to continuing this trend so need more space and being next door it was a very easy decision!’ Steve Baker, Managing Director.
The new building will become home to the Materials division of Bakers. The plan is to be installed there by the end of April, leaving the current materials warehouse available for further equipment investment and the possibility of branching into new, exciting areas of print. Watch this space!
New Turret Rewinder
Bakers continue to invest in the latest technology to keep improving efficiency and performance.
The newest addition to Baker’s factory was delivered on the 20th February. The new Auto Set Vectra SGTR glueless turret rewinder from AB Graphics will save hours of set-up time. The Vectra SGTR holds the substrate to the cores at the start of a new roll without stopping or slowing down the converting equipment. In addition, it is fitted with a print and apply label applicator to close the finished roll with a label. Quick, fast and clean, it is especially suitable for rewinding labels which have been printed on heat sensitive substrates, or using heat sensitive inks, finishes or decorations.
"The demand for faster turn around and higher output is key to our long term success and equipment like this helps to make it a bit easier. Reinvesting the profits in equipment and staff training has and will always be our main priority. This is a great piece of kit which the guys are already very comfortable with and are impressed with the ease of set-up." Steve Baker, Managing Director.
