The management teams of US-based Spear, Inc. and UK-located Sparkprint, a division of Ferguson (U.K.) Limited , announced in April the creation of a new partnership under the name Spear UK for the production and servicing of the clear pressure sensitive film label industry within the United Kingdom. Spear, Inc. (headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio) is credited with the creation of the primary film label market, for both opaque and clear label applications, in the personal care, beverage and food industries. Created over twenty years ago, the company says it has built an international award-winning reputation and is recognised as the leading supplier of clear film labels worldwide. Sparkprint, with over thirty years of expertise in printing labels and producing labelling equipment, has earned a reputation and ranks as one of the United Kingdom“s foremost companies in the label printing field. According to the company, this wealth of experience is built on sound total quality management principles, sustained investment, and the very latest production techniques. Sparkprint production is accredited to British Standards – BS 5750 Part II, ISO-9002, and EN-29002. Based on the announcement, Spear UK was created due to the success of the Spear system in the United Kingdom and the desire by Spear“s customers to have their labels manufactured locally. Up until the creation of Spear UK, all of the requirements in the United Kingdom for the Spear system were manufactured in their Cincinnati, Ohio facility. Customers of Spear UK will have the advantage of local production, and yet have access to the global marketplace through Spear and their international network. Further, the creation of Spear UK will offer the United Kingdom competitive prices and better scheduling flexibility. Both Spear, Inc. and Sparkprint will be involved with the daily operations of Spear UK, with Spear, Inc. providing the material and technological support and Sparkprint charged with the daily manufacturing. Concurrent with the announcement of the creation of Spear UK, a further announcement was made stating that John Daniels, former vice-president of sales and marketing at United Glass, has joined the Spear UK sales and marketing team. Mr. Daniels will assist in the continued sales and development of Spear UK“s presence in the United Kingdom clear film label marketplace. Spear UK began operations mid-first quarter 1996, and its production includes popular labels such as Foster“s Ice, Strongbow Ice Cider, and Appletise.
