Northern Label Systems About Us

About Us

Northern Label Systems was founded by Simon Brown in 2003.  Simon started working in the label industry in 1988 when he was a field service engineer for Toshiba which involved the on-site repair of label printers in the south east of England.  He then went on to manage the label printer repair facility at Toshiba in Preston in 1992 and after three years there worked in several positions as label printer installation engineer then sales account manager for a global label systems provider.  As managing Director of Northern Label Systems Limited Simon uses his many years of experience in the label industry to ensure that only the highest quality products are sold by us.  This is why we only sell products that we are confident meet our standards and that we can trust.  This is also why you may notice that there are some products we do not sell - even the biggest and most popular brands release products that we consider not to our standard so we leave that particular product or range off of our website.

Northern Label Systems Limited  is located just a few minutes away from the M6 and M65 junction in Preston, Lancashire.  The business has been built on a reputation for supplying high quality labels at the best possible prices. We supply label printers by Zebra Technologies, Citizen and Toshiba TEC, as well as self adhesive labels available in a wide variety of sizes, colours and adhesive types to suit all label machines and applications, making it effortless to print your own labels!

We can make you more efficient - Our products can create Address Labels, Iron-On Nametags and Accessories which include Dispensers, Unwinders and Rewinders. These useful tools are designed to make your label processing more efficient. In addition to local towns and cities in Lancashire and Merseyside - including Preston, Liverpool, Bolton and Manchester - Northern Label Systems deliver to all UK addresses, as well as the Scottish Highlands, Northern Ireland and some offshore addresses.
