GEORGE NEWS - In 1995, Ben and Jeanette Raubenheimer founded Label Leaders in George with a single three-colour press and three staff members in a 110m² factory. They could never have dreamt that 23 years later they would employ 38 people and have a 2 000m² state-of-the-art factory.
There is now a studio where they produce their own plates, four pre-press machines, five printing presses, three finishing machines and four high-speed rewinders.
Their newest edition of finishing machines can do print jobs with exceptional precision and is the only of its kind in Africa.
Label Leaders is a thriving label printing operation that's one of few, if not the only, narrow-web flexographic printers between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth!
Ben and Jeanette Raubenheimer have decided to retire and since last year the day-to-day operational management has been in the capable hands of Theo Raubenheimer and René Koen, son and daughter of the founding members - both now directors and shareholders.
Label Leaders operates its own in-house DTP department. They pride themselves that they have gained the marketing knowledge to advise clients on designing the most effective label to sell their product. It is never "just a label".
Over the years Label Leaders has constantly invested in technology, acquiring the latest presses to stay ahead of the ever-changing need of their clients.
Label Leaders will continue their vision as a family business that will lead in technology, but service and quality will never be compromised. They live their motto: "Let's grow together!"
