Industrial Labelling Systems (ILS) has marked its tenth year as the longstanding distributor of Evolabel products in the UK and Ireland, as the business continues to grow with the addition of two new support team members.
Evolabel is a pioneer in print and apply systems, enabling fast and precise automatic labelling in production and warehousing. The company’s extensive range of machines have been distributed worldwide successfully by ILS over the last ten years.
Since the partnership began in 2013, ILS has played a pivotal role in supplying Evolabel’s state-of-the-art technologies in North America, Europe and Australia. Food and drink, pharmaceutical and healthcare, automotive, e-commerce and logistics sectors, have all benefitted from the partnership, with countless businesses streamlining their labelling processes, increasing efficiency, and maintaining the highest standards of product labelling.
Key to the partnership’s recent success has been the FlexWipe Pallet labeller, the first machine of its kind capable of operating at -28oC without the need for insulation or a heating cabinet.
Recognising the importance of a pallet labelling system that performs seamlessly even in extreme conditions, ILS and Evolabel collaborated closely to verify the suitability of the Flexwipe for such demands. With the support of ILS, Evolabel conducted tests on the Flexwipe Pallet labeller within frozen containers, simulating a real cold chain environment. Throughout this two-month testing period, the team monitored the system’s functionality, ensuring the solution would work for customers operating in subzero temperatures.
Successful ten years
As a result of this trial, ILS and Evolabel’s collaboration brought a pallet labelling solution which is setting new standards in the cold chain industry. With its ability to apply labels non-stop in often harsh operational environments, the FlexWipe Pallet labeller is helping remove employees from these conditions, increasing site safety and production efficiently. To date ILS has successfully deployed more than 80 FlexWipe systems in locations such as North America, France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Britain, Denmark, Holland and Australia.
“Our partnership with ILS has been integral to building sales of Evolabel machines over the past 10 years,” said Martin Selin Dijkstra, Marketing Manager at Evolabel.
“The team at ILS are partners in the truest sense, not only selling our machines but also working with us to ensure we develop what our customers want. We are delighted with the success of the first 10 years working together and look forward to the next 10 and beyond.”
As one of the UK’s leading suppliers of automatic print and apply labellers, ILS operates from an 11,000sq ft facility in Middleton, near Manchester. Having celebrated its twentieth anniversary in 2022, the company has seen significant growth and appointed two Technical Support Engineers to strengthen its operations.
Chris Cheshire joins ILS having previously worked for materials handling software provider, Dematic. In addition, his experience in the use of conveyor systems will prove invaluable for incorporating labelling successfully across clients’ production lines.
Kenny Docherty brings his expertise in maintenance engineering to the business, having worked for a global food and beverage manufacturer using Evolabel’s machines for over 10 years.
Denis Brett, Managing Director at ILS, added: “We are immensely proud of our successful partnership with Evolabel, delivering their market leading print and apply systems across the UK, Ireland and beyond.
“By continuing to invest in our team we will make sure that we deliver the service our partners know ILS for, and we look forward to expanding our reach and ensuring that businesses receive the best labelling technology and support.”
