Mercian Labels Group appoints new Chairman

Labelling specialists the Mercian Labels Group, based in Cannock UK, have recently appointed Mr Dennis Marrison as Chairman to support its next phase of expansion.

The Group is experiencing rapid domestic and export growth with the success of Label Lock, launched this year as a flagship brand of the Security Labels International division, and continued expansion of Mercian Labels, the market leader in fast-response short run labelling.

Marrison, with a background in manufacturing and the management of premier product brands, is the first board appointment from outside the business and the industry. “My work at Hamilton Acorn Ltd raised its performance to world class levels and won a Best Factory Award from Management Today and Cranfield University” he said, “and I am delighted to be able to put my business experience to use in the expansion of this innovative and dynamic company”.

Dr Adrian Steele, Managing Director, added “Dennis’s appointment adds significant strength to our board as we plan for further growth in the coming years. Despite the recession, we only see the Group continuing to build on its recent successes with another major new product launch due out shortly.”
