This announcement consolidates the work of these three key members of staff whilst they have been with the company. They have all dedicated themselves to the well being of the company and this move helps them share in the benefits of their hard work. It also gives me confidence that the company is in safe hands when I am away from the office.
Positive ID Labels have invested £330,000 in a MPS EB370 8 colour UV label printing press this year on top of the £330,000 investment in the Jetrion 490 digital printing press and in-line laser cutting station in November 2015.
