Smart label innovator Timestrip has teamed up with US giant CCL Label to create a significant new partnership agreement. The venture will integrate Timestrip’s label technologies into CCL’s premium labels and packaging.
CCL is a global leader in the manufacture of high-quality packaging and labelling for the consumer products and healthcare industries. The partnership with Timestrip will initially concentrate on the cost-effective integration of the Timestrip® and iStrip™ technologies into a range of CCL’s labels for healthcare products. The new range of integrated solutions will be promoted to customers worldwide by CCL’s international sales force.
The first of a number of integration concepts will be launched at the upcoming Interphex show at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York on April 24th. It’s a significant development for Timestrip, as Paul Freedman, Joint CEO, explains: “Partnerships with industry-leaders like CCL are vital to demonstrate market acceptance of the Timestrip technologies to the widest possible audience. I’m confident that CCL will develop a range of integrated solutions which are popular with its customers on a global scale.”
Timestrip has recently changed the configuration of its signature label, moving the blister which activates the Timestrip® from the back to the front of the label. With the reverse of the label now completely flat and therefore fully adhesive, the process of integrating Timestrips® into product packaging has been made much less complex.
Robert Ryckman, Vice President of Sales, North America for CCL Label, is enthusiastic about the opportunities the new partnership presents: “We’re excited to be working with Timestrip. At CCL we have the ability to seamlessly incorporate the Timestrip® and iStrip™ technologies into customised label solutions, making high-quality products available across multiple industry segments. This project has huge potential.”
CCL Label is the global leader for pressure-sensitive self-adhesive labels and promotional products. The company has a strong reputation for offering innovative solutions in response to customers’ unique requirements, along with a proven track record of delivering state-of-the-art technology to the packaging industry. Established for over 50 years, CCL employs more than 4900 people and has 49 plants across North America, Europe, Latin America and Asia.
Timestrip plc floated on the UK Alternative Investment Market (AIM) in 2005 and the company has since worked with an impressive client list across a wide range of industries. Timestrip will be showcasing its ideas for label integration with CCL at the Interphex show at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York from April 24th – 26th.
