November 14, 2011

In addition to manual quality checks, each barcode is verified to ANSI grade on the press immediately after being printed.

AC Labels has manufactured its 200 millionth unique barcode label since reforming in April 2010 as part of the Mercian Labels Group.

“Producing so many high quality variable data labels is a sure sign that we are getting it right,” said Peter Hartshorn, general manager. “This proves we are supplying our customers with the service and value they expect and our small team at Derby is very proud.”

AC Labels specializes in variable data printing and manufactures barcode labels and tags with 100% barcode verification for medical, pharmaceutical, logistics and courier markets. According to the company, AC Labels is able to manufacture difficult and complex constructions to solve customer problems.

“Understanding what we offer is key to our strategic success. Our next goal is to identify new market sectors that require the benefits we bring along with new customers in sectors already served,” said Hartshorn.

The company has recently regained the ISO:9001 certification to UKAS standards.
