Lancaster based self-adhesive materials manufacturer, Metamark LTD, has commissioned a further coating line at its Lancaster UK manufacturing location.
Metamark is among the UK’s largest manufacturers and suppliers of materials sold primarily to the signs and graphics industries, and is well known among its customers for industry leading products such as its MD5 digital media of which the company has manufactured and sold over thirty million square metres.
The new line will enable Metamark to expand its production output to include new types of specialist adhesives offering its customers greatly enhanced specification choices and application specific performance. The line includes state-of-the-art energy optimisation controls and process monitoring measures that will help Metamark improve yields from the resources it employs.
The company says that the new line sailed through its commissioning and that it’s now a fully employed and very productive asset. To handle the increased coating capacity in Lancaster, Metamark has also improved its co-located materials conversion and distribution capability. The primary targets for the new production are the graphics markets and developing demand for functional films in construction and other sectors.
Metamark has an impressive record of recent growth and is recognised as a leading brand in the industries it supplies. Recently the subject of its own MBO, Metamark is pursuing further growth through organic development, geographical expansion and new market initiatives.
