Joined Labelnet: 1999 (Founder)
I worked in the print industry after leaving school for my Dads business until he retired and sold the company. At the time I felt that the self-adhesive label market was not being served well by the label producers. I spoke to loads of potential customers and realised so many label companies seemed to be letting their customers down with delivery or quality or both and the ones that weren’t seemed to be massively over charging for their products. I decided to start Labelnet with the aim of putting customers first and trying to keep costs to a minimum.
22 years later and the principles remain the same. Many of the customers we supplied in the first year are still ordering with us today and right now we’re growing faster than ever. We’ve continually invested in the latest machinery and systems and that has helped us to become one of the leading label companies in the UK.
Of everything we’ve achieved, I’m most proud of the team that’s been created at Labelnet. We have ambitious and determined employees that share the same values as the ones that the business was founded on and they will be the ones that ensure Labelnet continues to thrive over the next 22 years and beyond…
