Brite Solutions – Case Study
Location: Cheshire, UK
Brite Solutions needed to find a cost-effective solution to bring their chemical labels into compliance with Classification, Labeling, and Packaging – European Chemicals Agency (CLP-ECHA) requirements, which is part of the worldwide Global Harmonization System (GHS) effort. They manufacture and package more than 80 chemical products for the Household, Garden, Car Care, and Professional Cleaning markets. The sheer volume of label changes required a different solution.
- Cost-effective label compliance solution
- The ability to rapidly change label designs
- Reduce label cost
Return on Investment
To print a new label design on an offset press, it was necessary to create hundreds of dollars’ worth of plates. Going through the design-change and proofing process could cost thousands. An Afinia Digital Label Press virtually eliminated that expense by printing digital designs and eliminating the need for plates. Now, Brite Solutions can make label changes “on-the-fly” to comply with governmental requirements.
They also can print as many labels as they need, when they need them. They also have a sister company that provides marketing and branding services for companies wishing to launch retail and commercial chemical solutions. Their Afnia DLP-2000 allows them to print short runs for trial product introductions.
Brite Solutions calculates that their equipment will pay for itself in less than one year.
