Label converter leverages FLEXcon's Underwriters Laboratory (UL) Adoption Program to eliminate cost of compliance and boosts sales

FLEXcon, an innovator in adhesive coating and laminating, today announced that Cummins Label is leveraging the Company's Underwriters Laboratory (UL) Adoption Program and expertise to reduce the risks of delays to market, lower the costs associated with end product certification, and increase sales.

Cummins Label is an integrated label converter that services the Food and Beverage industry, Medical Device Manufacturing, Personal Care, Pet Products, Agricultural Chemical, Lawn & Garden and other specialty markets. The company is committed to providing the highest levels of quality, service, innovation and technical support to its customers.

Working closely with FLEXcon, Cummins Label was able to successfully integrate numerous UL-recognized FLEXcon products into their own UL portfolio. These include THERMLfilm® NEXgen™ products which offer the next generation in topcoat, film and adhesive technology solutions, as well as "greener" options such as a more eco-friendly adhesive and the industry's first post-consumer waste release liner. FLEXcon's UL program enabled Cummins Label to offer more competitive label products to the marketplace, and also to provide more eco-friendly solutions for their increasingly environmentally conscious clientele.

"As a label converter in a highly competitive industry, we can't afford the time or expense of UL testing ourselves," said Scott Nagel, Cummins Label. "FLEXcon's UL Adoption Program enables us to offer more competitive label products while clearly demonstrating our commitment to customers' safety requirements."

Underwriters Laboratory (UL) is the United States' largest and oldest recognized testing laboratory, which offers consumers the confidence in continuous product compliance when making their purchases. The UL mark – which is actively sought by most manufacturers and familiar to millions of consumers – indicates compliance with rigorous industry safety standards in North America. It certifies that the product has been evaluated and found to comply with all applicable UL requirements.

"FLEXcon offers the broadest portfolio of UL-recognized products in the industry and continues to lead the charge when it comes to UL education," said John Bennett, vice president, FLEXcon. "For years, we have been committed to helping converters streamline the process of achieving UL label compliance to fulfill industry and consumer-safety standards while reducing time and costs. Our UL Adoption Program offers them more incentive to get their products approved to ensure consistent quality and gain the international compliance and recognition they desire."
