Lurgan Firm Exceeds Sales And Export Targets

Lurgan based JH Label Solutions has exceeded all its sales and export targets, securing over £5m in sales in just four years with the support of Invest Northern Ireland.

The company produces printed self-adhesive and pressure sensitive labels for both small and large local businesses, as well as many major blue chip end users outside Northern Ireland. It sells into several sectors including food, beverage, personal care, pharmaceutical, engineering and chemical.

Owned by brothers Keith and Alan Hamilton, JH Label Solutions has been very successful in securing export business with around 50% of the company's sales going to end users outside Northern Ireland, including Great Britain, Republic of Ireland, Dubai, mainland Europe, Canada and the USA.

Ian Murphy, Invest NI's Director of Growth and Scaling, said: "JH Label Solutions has demonstrated great energy and focus and has shown that, with the right strategy and people, it is possible to create sustainable sales, controlled growth and high quality employment.

"Invest NI's support has helped this young company to quickly establish a strong position in the marketplace and in particular to secure some big name clients in export markets. We are continuing to work with JH Label Solutions to help them take their business to the next level."
