Meet The Team
Keith Gypps, Managing Director
In excess of thirty years in the labelling industry and founder member of the company, Keith has an almost unhealthy passion for all things “self-adhesive”. Having seen many changes over the years both in design and origination and more recently print technology, Keith is as passionate as ever about the print industry. With an almost unparalleled knowledge in “Chemical Labelling” and the legal requirements involved Keith is your first point of contact for all print and label enquiries that are a little difficult or different. Passionate about customer service and insistent on quality of product and believing the customer always comes first, Keith continues along with business partner John Attaway to drive the company forward.
