AboutLogopak International Ltd
Logopak is a unique marriage of English entrepreneurship and German engineering. Founded by an Englishman in Germany, Logopak invented the first print and apply labelling system in 1983.
We have continued to be a major innovator in this field, launching new print and apply innovations such as the integrated barcode verifier Vericoderin 2013.
Our German-built fully automated industrial label printers are designed for reliability and continuous operation. Our diverse range of applicators means print and apply labels can be placed with precision on any part of the line product.
Our award-winning aftersales service covers the whole of the UK.
Skilled staff in our manufacturing complex in the countryside north of Hamburg design our own machinery, electronics, and software. We manufacture, assemble and thoroughly test all Logopak print & apply labelling systems ourselves.
We are confident that when installed on production lines, our product is more reliable, more efficient, lasts longer and has much lower downtime than every other competitive product in the market place.
