Hub Labels Announces Marel Partnership

Hub Labels Announces Partnership with Marel to Provide More Choices in labelling solutions to the Poultry, Meat and Fish Packaging Industry

Hub Labels Poised to Make Significant Waves in the Linerless Label Market Segment

Hagerstown, MD [January 24, 2020] – Hub Labels is pleased to announce a partnership with Marel as a preferred label manufacturer for the M360 labeler offered by Marel. The M360 Labeler is designed for linerless labeling of all popular tray sizes and is ideally suited for skin pack trays.

“The partnership between Hub Labels and Marel demonstrates our commitment to creating solutions that work for our customers,” said Thomas Dahbura, President of Hub labels. “At Hub, we have been partnering with various material providers to bring more choices and supply chain safety to our clients. Our open source solution provides clients more flexibility to choose their own substrates and gain more control over their package fulfillment. Finally, food manufacturers can now get best-in-class equipment and linerless labels, with more freedom than before. This equates to an immeasurable value for our clients who now have a dedicated team to keep their labeling manufacturing line running at optimal capacity and minimal downtime. The partnership with Marel, will enable us to offer outstanding labelling solutions for our customers.”

Hub Labels first introduced linerless labels to the United States marketplace in 2009. Linerless labels provide all the benefits of self-adhesive labeling but with many improved efficiencies through their non-utilization of carrier backing paper. Without backing paper, roll weight is significantly reduced by as much as 40%, which equates to less waste, more labels on a reel, and less changeovers.
Available in silicone coated paper, board, or synthetic materials, linerless labels adheres to a tray through strategically placed glue strips. This revolutionary label delivers consistency on the shelf, as well as an increased surface area to deliver a brand’s message.
