Rugged and Robust Labelling Manufacture

North Yorkshire,
YO7 1PS Other,
United Kingdom

UID UK is a specialist in the manufacture of rugged and robust labelling. Our rugged and durable labels are capable of working in the harshest of environments. We can supply rugged labels for a wide range of projects and specifications, and work closely with both national and international clients.

We have the expertise and capability to ensure that you can successfully mark and identify your product whatever the environment it’s exposed to.

UID UK operates from GSM Graphic Arts, the label, nameplate and fascia specialist and part of The GSM Group. GSM Graphic Arts has a comprehensive background in barcoding and direct part marking and it was this knowledge and experience, gained over more than 35 years, that led to the creation of UID UK.

We are involved with many new and emerging technologies and also with the development of more traditional ones. We advise the AIDC and barcoding community of the technology available to meet the marking standards required. Our unique Primodise digital printing technique enables us to print photographic images, infinite colour combinations and sequential barcode information.

Rugged labels for extreme conditions

Wherever your product is located, inside or outside, exposed to extremes of temperature, harsh chemicals, salt spray, oil or fire, we have the durable label for you.

We have vast experience of working with all industry sectors including automotive, aerospace, military, logistics and retail, health services and local government.
