Mercian Labels celebrates 45th Anniversary

mercian_historyAward winning label printer Mercian Labels has marked its 45th anniversary with a celebration including all its staff.

The Staffordshire based printer was incorporated on 11 April 1969 and originally traded from a town-house in the picturesque village of Penkridge.  Now based at its modern purpose-built factory in nearby Cannock, the group employees 37 people across 2 sites, trading with over 20 countries and over 9,000 businesses.

 “45 years of trading marks another significant milestone in our growth story” commented Managing Director Dr Adrian Steele. “The business continues to enjoy year on year growth thanks to the fantastic team we have at Mercian Labels.  Our reputation for manufacturing labels that are delivered with speed and backed by excellent service has seen us continuously acquire market share in the UK in recent years through the recession.”


“Holding a small celebration to mark the anniversary on our 45th birthday to recognise this success was appreciated all round” added Steele.  “If nothing else, we all got to enjoy a wonderful celebration lunch with a surprise cake!”
