Established in 1999 in Beirut, Lebanon, Label Plus started production on a Comco narrow web press; Comco has been acquired by Mark Andy Inc. in recent years. Mr. Haytham Sinno, owner and Managing Director of Label Plus acquired his first Mark Andy 2200 in 2006 at the Labelexpo in Brussels and last year expanded its machine park and bought a Mark Andy 2200 XL. A few months later in 2010 Label Plus purchased its third Mark Andy machine, also a 2200 XL.
Today, Label Plus offers 6 color print labels to its customers mainly in the food and beverage, detergent and security seals industries in the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia.
