The new Manchester facility brings together three well-respected British brands—Harland, Graham and Sleevit, with their associated self-adhesive and shrink sleeve labeling technologies—in one center of excellence, enabling shared R&D and manufacturing efficiencies.
“Accraply’s investment in a larger, modern facility provides a strong foundation from which to grow and serve our expanding global customer base,” explains Lafferty. “It will provide our team members with a state-of-the-art facility and serve as an excellent location to showcase our expanding range of labeling and sleeving solutions.”
By the summer of 2020, the 46,000 square-foot facility will house engineering, manufacturing and all related support functions. It will also act as the support hub for Accraply’s sales and service network across the EMEA region, and provide the company with a base from which to share best practices and engage with technology and supply chain partners—all with a goal of delivering exceptional value to customers.
The new Manchester location complements Accraply’s global manufacturing footprint, with locations in the US and Canada, as well as service hubs across North America, the UK, Mexico, France, Germany, Italy and China.
