Leading provider of labelling and auto-identification solutions for the UK Retail, Food & Drink, Industrial and Healthcare sectors, SATO UK has invested £7 million in a new state-of-the-art production facility adjacent to its existing site in Harwich, UK.
At 35,000ft2, the new site houses a modern office space for the company’s customer service, purchasing and logistics teams, as well as extensive manufacturing and warehousing facilities. The production floor is now a temperature and humidity controlled cleanroom with a positive pressure to minimise contaminants. The carefully controlled environment and improved lighting will ensure SATO UK produces only highest quality labels, tickets and tags. An improved waste management system will further improve productivity and reduce the environmental footprint.

We have over 80 employees here in Harwich and are delighted that we can now offer them a contemporary up to date working environment, as well as facilitate our further manufacturing growth to be a trusted partner addressing the diverse tagging needs of customers.”
