By Bizerba   

(PresseBox) (Milton KeynesThe weighing, cutting and labelling specialist Bizerba opens another location for the production of innovative and individual labels. The opening in Milton Keynes is an important milestone for the global player to expand its business in the UK and to be able to offer holistic solutions to customers from industry and trade.

Bizerba is proud to announce that they have opened new offices and label manufacturing facility in Milton Keynes, UK. In a state-of-the-art building, an ultra-modern printing plant has been set up, which specializes in the production of a wide variety of labels. The new plant is fully equipped with a ten full-colour EFA 530 printing press from MPS, in another first for the company. This means that they can produce all kind of labels which can be processed with Bizerba systems. Decorative labels, thermal labels and linerless labels are just as much a part of the portfolio as special labels that are produced on an individual customer basis. The portfolio of the labelling specialist Bizerba in the UK market is thus ideally completed.

The offices of Bizerba UK will also be in the new building from now on. In a new, fully equipped showroom, customers and partners can experience the broad portfolio and smart interaction of Bizerba hardware, software and labels solutions.

Investment in Integrated Solutions


Bizerba pursues globally a holistic approach and offers the right software, full-service support and a large portfolio of high-quality and individual labels for all Bizerba installations. An in-house print shop was necessary in order to be able to deliver labels faster and more easily in the future. In particular, the demand for the patented CleanCut® Linerless solution is increasing rapidly in this market. This solution prevents soiling of the label applicator and does not require any liner for the labels.

Andreas Kraut, CEO & Shareholder of Bizerba visited Milton Keynes to officially open the new facility. Speaking ahead of the unveiling ceremony, he said: “This is an incredibly exciting new development for Bizerba UK, and we could not be more proud of what we have achieved with this new facility. We have invested heavily in some of the best, market-leading printing equipment. The incredible printing press is installed and ready to go.”

Sourcing Bizerba Labels locally or as close as possible to the production locations will give a lot of advantages: Communication, transportation, flexibility and also stock management will be much smoother.

Charles Pullen, Managing Director of Bizerba UK, says: “Bizerba Labels & Consumables is a growing and dynamic business, and our new facility is the beginning of something very important for the UK. It has been long-planned and the equipment carefully chosen, to ensure we become leaders in this field.
