Bar Graphic Machinery Expands UK Operations

Bar Graphic Machinery (BGM) has expanded its facility in Bradford, West Yorkshire, UK, more than doubling its production capacity, according to a published report.

BGM is a manufacturer of label finishing systems, die-cutting slitter rewinders, digital label converting finishing systems, and flexible packaging finishing equipment for the global label and flexible packaging industries. It bought a building adjacent to its current site in fall 2021. “The expansion more than doubles the company’s production capacity and houses a dedicated machine shop for the manufacture and storage of components,” according to a report in L&NW magazine.

The company is seeing tremendous demand for its technology, and the new facility will allow it to increase manufacturing output by at least 60% in the first year, says Annemarie Rhodes, managing director at Bar Graphic, in the article. The expansion also enables the company to build bigger machines and expand on its digital finishing and flexo press ranges using the old machine shop as extra build capacity.
