1996 – it seems like yesterday!
It was the year when The Spice Girls launched their first single, Charles and Diana got divorced and Dolly the cloned sheep hit the headlines. Also, we all sang “Three Lions on my Shirt” as Terry Venables took England to the semi-finals of Euro 96 …. ‘football’s coming home.’
But something else very significant happened in 1996 – Kingfisher Labels was formed, and 25 years later we are still going strong.
We are obviously delighted with how we have developed as both an organisation and a group of colleagues; we’ve always been a close-knit family business, fiercely proud of both our employees and our west country roots.
It has certainly been an interesting journey; rather like riding a horse in the Grand National – we’ve galloped along nicely, then every now and again a horrible, big obstacle has loomed up in front of us. So we’ve tightened our grip on the reins, successfully negotiated each obstacle and continued our progress.
We make no apology for repeating that our mantra from day one has been simple. We were determined to become a major player in the self-adhesive labels market by achieving steady, consistent business growth, through total customer satisfaction. Keeping our customers happy has helped us grow and be able to invest in state-of-the-art technologies to ensure our customers become even happier! It’s a straightforward, down to earth philosophy, but it works.
And it also reflects the profile of the company. Kingfisher employees are a fantastic group of passionate, dedicated local people who are totally committed to satisfying our customers’ business requirements quickly and efficiently while focussing on quality. And we love what we do. Offering a high-quality label printing service covering a wide range of products and services is what makes us leap out of bed in the morning full of enthusiasm for the day ahead.
We expect to meet, and exceed, any print quality expectations regardless of the size of the print run. We are big enough to work with large multinational organisations and small enough to deliver a personalised service to all our customers – whether you’re a global brand or a local business. We are proud of our hugely committed team, we are passionate about remaining innovative, we are ruthless in our pursuit of excellence and we are dedicated to keeping our customers happy.
When you buy a label from Kingfisher you are not just getting a high-quality product; you are also buying into our history, our heritage and our years of experience. And we will carry on ensuring our current customer-base enjoys a great service whilst attracting new customers looking for quality, reliability and reassurance.
We are Kingfisher Labels Limited – a proud, Bristol-based company that was established in 1996 – and we may just shout about it a few times during this year as we celebrate our 25th Anniversary!
