Newman Labelling celebrates 75 years with VIP visit

Newman Labelling Systems, a leading manufacturer and supplier of specialist labelling machines, was honoured to welcome local MP, Theresa Villiers, as part of its 75th-anniversary celebrations at its premises in Barnet, North London this November.

The event, which took place on 2nd November 2018, was part of a year-long celebration marking Newman Labelling Systems’ achievements in its incredible 75 years in the industry. Newman Labelling Systems Director Martha Newman, Managing Director Shaun Baker and Production Manager Martyn Bell took Theresa Villiers on a guided tour of the facility, demonstrating labelling machines in action and presenting the company’s manufacturing capability. A specially prepared display exhibiting the long history of the company proved particularly interesting. Theresa spoke with a number of employees and finished the visit with a cup of tea and a specially made Newman 75 year anniversary cake.

Commenting on the event, Managing Director Shaun Baker said: “It was a pleasure to welcome Theresa to our company, she was both friendly and engaging. Newman Labelling Systems is a rarity in Barnet: a manufacturer alive and well in what is primarily a residential area. Theresa was impressed with our many achievements and was interested to hear about the company history, as well as our plans for the future.”

The history of the company began in 1943 when two gentlemen, Bob Newman and Dave Friend, started Newman Labelling Machines (which later became Newman Labelling Systems). The company has been based in its current location since 1960 and currently employs around 30 people. The company remains privately owned by the Newman family. The current company owner, Martha Newman, is the daughter-in-law of the original founder, Bob Newman.

Newman Labelling Systems is a UK company that designs and manufactures a complete range of high quality, customisable labelling equipment to meet the specific demands of the pharmaceutical, veterinary, biotech, nutraceutical and other regulated industries both in the UK and worldwide. Newman labelling machines are designed for fast, reliable and accurate application of both paper and clear pressure sensitive labels to a wide range of containers, including ampoules, vials, syringes, carpules, glass bottles, plastic bottles, square containers, securitainers and cartons.

4 Reasons to Visit Newman Labelling Systems at PACK EXPO 2017 – North Hall Booth N-437

September 25-27th 2017
Las Vegas, NV USA
North Hall Booth N-437

With our industry and engineering expertise, there’s always a good reason to visit Newman Labelling Systems at PACK EXPO, but this year there are four great reasons!

1. S350 labelling system
A working S350 fully automatic labelling system will be demonstrated. The S350 has been designed to operate 24/7 at a true production rate of up to 300 cpm with high levels of efficiency according to DIN 8743. It is capable of applying both paper and clear plastic labels to cylindrical containers in glass, plastic, metal and composite materials. Both label and container size changes can be rapidly achieved without the use of tools and digital scales provide repeatable container changeover in minutes.

2. See Newman’s unique Faulty Label Removal (FLR) system in action!
Is your current labelling system applying faulty labels to good product? Working in conjunction with the vision system, the FLR automatically removes ‘faulty’ labels from the labelling process before they are applied, reducing waste whilst allowing full batch reconciliation.

3. Meet Newman’s new MD
Having joined Newman Labelling in March, this is the first PACK EXPO for Managing Director Shaun Baker. Shaun has a wealth of experience in the pharmaceutical sector, from engineering through to sales and marketing. Take the opportunity to meet with Shaun and share your thoughts on both Newman and the industry at large.

4. Save nearly $30,000!
As if three reasons aren’t enough! As an extra bonus, order the S350 Labelling System at the show and qualify for a very generous discount; that represents a saving of nearly $30,000.00.

So, if you hadn’t planned to already, be sure to visit Newman Labelling Systems at this year’s PACK EXPO in North Hall Booth N-437

Newman Labelling Demonstrates FMD Compliant Systems at Interpack 2017 – Hall 15 / A10

Newman Labelling Systems, a leading supplier of specialist pharmaceutical labelling systems, will be displaying its S350 fully automatic versatile labelling system at Interpack 2017 in Dusseldorf, Germany, 4-10th May. The S350, along with all of Newman Labelling’s systems, is fully compatible with the Track and Trace requirements of the Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD) and is available with comprehensive validation support and a wide range of printing and inspection systems.

The S350, on show at Interpack, has been designed to operate 24/7 at a true production rate of up to 300 containers per minute with high levels of efficiency according to DIN 8743. It is capable of applying both paper and clear plastic labels to cylindrical containers in glass, plastic, metal and composite materials. Both label and container size changes can be rapidly achieved without the use of tools and digital scales provide repeatable container changeover in minutes.

A compact cGMP Design, manufactured in stainless steel 304 finish, the S350 comes with a range of features as standard, such as ‘Auto-teach’ label length facility, a positive accept security system and In-Process Control.

The latest data-bus technology has been utilised within the machine, so as to simplify the integration of security and ancillary devices such as Visions Systems to ensure full compatibility with the Track and Trace requirements of the FMD. The S350 at Interpack will be displayed with a working Vision System to demonstrate these capabilities and effectiveness.

A further enhancement to Track & Trace requirements comes in the form of Newman’s unique Faulty Label Removal (FLR) System with its automatic controlling of reject labels, which will also be demonstrated at Interpack. In operation, should the FLR system not receive “good signals” from the scanning/security devices in use (including bar code reader, missing overprint detector, OCV camera and 2D matrix code reader), the faulty label is securely removed from the label web prior to application onto the container. These faulty labels are then transferred to a paper roll for batch reconciliation and inspection.

All Newman Labelling Systems have many optional extras to suit budget and specification, details of which are available at the show.

Interpack 2017 marks the first major show for Newman’s newly appointed Managing Director Shaun Baker. “Since starting at Newman in March I have been immersing myself in the business. Interpack will be my first chance to meet a wide range of Newman’s customers and partners from around the globe, so is an excellent relationship building tool as well as a key sales opportunity.”

Newman Labelling Systems is a leading manufacturer of specialised labelling machines for the pharmaceutical industry, with a customer base that includes the world’s top ten pharmaceutical companies. All purpose-built systems are fully compliant with FDA cGMP requirements and can be supplied with validation completed up to PQ.
