Record figures and new US subsidiary for Herma's Labelling Machines division

Sales in 2015 increased by about 10% reaching a record €42m

Martin Kuehl, Head of Herma's Labelling Machines division: 'Significant growth is being fuelled by the healthcare sector'

Herma's Labelling Machines division shipped more than 3,000 labellers for the first time in 2015, driven by 'significant growth' in the healthcare sector.

Sales increased by about 10% reaching a record €42m, the firm said.

The German self-adhesive technology specialist expects further growth after establishing its first subsidiary in the US, which will focus exclusively on the distribution of labellers and labelling machines.

The company is to commence operations this July at the new subsidiary located in Fairfield, New Jersey.

Over the last two years, Herma has invested in optimising manufacturing processes, including in lean manufacturing for standard machines, and most recently in an entirely re-engineered labeller production line.

In the coming three years, the firm says it will invest a further €100m in a variety of projects, including a brand new labelling machine plant in Filderstadt, Germany.

Herma also promises the launch of more products to coincide with Interpack 2017.
