How we got here
Since 1980 we have been innovating in the label printing industry. This is how we got here.
Hine Labels began life in a back room at the Old Rectory in Whiston, Rotherham, where the Hine family lived. Peter Hine retired from his engineering career, and bought a Hot Foil printing machine from his employer. The idea was that he’d supply his old employer with labels. Quickly, Peter gained a reputation locally as a talented label-maker.
The business quickly outgrew the family home and moved to Westgate in of Rotherham town centre.
Having bought five more hot foil machines, the Hine family needed to move premises again, to an industrial unit on Fitzwilliam Road.
We needed to print faster and in bigger volumes due to consumer demand. Flexography label printing was the answer and raised the quality significantly. By now we had outgrown our premises and moved again, this time to Hope Street on the edge of the town.
We progressed, now owning five UV Flexo presses producing Labels, Tags, Tickets, Luggage Tags, and many more other products.
We become one of the first adopters of digital printing technology in the UK. This means unlimited colours, faster turnaround, and more competitive pricing for our customers.
We introduced full-colour management to keep our digital ink colours matching our flexo ink colours meaning, no matter our printing method, your brand colours will be consistent.
We introduced our first high-speed Digital UV Ink Jet press. Now we could offer faster printing and vibrant colours – helping your product labels to stand out on the shelf.
We achieved BRC Global Standards for packaging, a globally recognised standard for product safety and quality, started by the five big supermarkets to ensure high standards with their supply chains.
We introduced low-migration digital printing. Low migration inks are designed to ensure that they don’t contaminate food via the label (protecting your products). These inks are ideal for pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and more.
The world closes down during the Covid-19 pandemic. But, for us, it is a time of evolution. With a new factory extension completed and new brand identity, we look forward to an exciting future.
An exciting year for transformation! We’ve expanded our customer service team and technical knowledge.
A massive year for Hine! Our new management team is fully formed, bringing in a fresh era for the company.
