The company supplies 70% of its adhesive material to customers worldwide, while 30% is used for producing such as self-adhesive label sheets for PC printers and copiers.

Herma MD Dr Thomas Baumgartner says: "This coating plant represents the start of a new era, with the potential annual production capacity for adhesive labels set to triple." the labelling specialist says it is also set to triple.
