That is why we have invested significantly in our production and provide the highest quality label core on the UK market.

Quality & Sustainability of the cores
Our experience and understanding in providing top-notch label tubes for the label industries direct us to provide the best solutions for our customers. Quality, reliability, and consistency are the main factor for our products. Our label cores dust-free, made from 100% recycled paper and durable. We make each cardboard tube using high-grade raw materials from Forest Stewardship Council certified (FSC certified) paper mills. These materials are the highest environmental and quality standards available, all backed up by our 9001 & 14001 ISO certification. Label cores are blast-dried to guarantee radial durability, and this reduces the chances of expensive cores crush issues at the point of label winding or at your customer. It allows several clients to decrease wall thickness specifications and lower the cost, if you’d like to work with us on this just get in touch.
