The Netherlands-based Clondalkin Group, in its Specialist Packaging Division, has invested £300,000 in finishing equipment at its UK Labels business to support its expansion in the pharmaceuticals and cosmetics markets. Clondalkin Group is installing three AB Graphics finishing lines at self-adhesive labels specialists Harlands Labels in Hull and Ditone Labels in Kimbolton.
