Making our mark on the label sector


ur sister company Arden Engraving is now making an impression on the label industry.

As a leading manufacturer of complex tools and dies for the packaging sector, we have supplied embossing and hot foiling stamping tools to the carton industry for two decades.

Now we’ve expanded into the label market – offering advanced rotary and flatbed tooling solutions to some of the largest label manufacturers in the world.

Simon Lynch, Operations and Sales Director at Arden Engraving, said: “With 20 years’ experience providing high quality embossing and foil stamping tooling to the carton industry, it’s been a very natural progression for us to expand into the label market

“In recent years there’s been a real surge in demand for embossing and foiling on packaging and labels within the food and drinks industries, who recognise that this level of embellishment can add a sense of elevated quality and luxury to a brand.

“However, with the number of rotary die manufacturers in the UK being limited, we are delighted to enter this bespoke market to offer a collaborative and innovative alternative to the label industry’s converters.

“We’ve invested heavily in the latest CNC engraving machinery and advanced laser technologies to provide highly precise foil stamping tooling to help ensure our customers are making the right impression.”

With 20 state-of-the-art CNC engraving machines, a team of highly skilled CAD engineers, and the latest 3D technology and laser technology, Arden Engraving is already working with some of the largest global producers in both the label and packaging sectors.
