Tipografic is joining forces with Royal Sens


We are pleased to announce that Tipografic and Royal Sens, both leading suppliers of cut & stack paper labels, reel-fed BOPP labels and flexible packaging to the UK and European markets, have decided to join forces. The combination of these 2 leaders in their respective markets creates an organization that will be able to serve customers even better and will allow us to remain competitive in the marketplace.

  • Royal Sens has been producing labels since 1896, has grown internationally to become a trusted leader in the manufacturing of  wet glue labels. With its headquarters located in Rotterdam, employing over 240, it has four branches in three countries supplying across the UK and Europe.
  • Tipografic (website) founded in 1989, moved to its current site in Birkenhead, UK in 2003. Over recent years it has grown substantially entering new markets and employs over 130 people.  It has progressively become the unquestioned market leader in the UK in producing wet glue labels for the food, drinks and household industries.

With Royal Sens acquiring 100% of Tipografic, effective today, the foundations are laid for a healthy and long-term successful cooperation with benefits for both organisations. This cooperation will bring Royal Sens closer to its customers in the UK, enabling optimized lead times, increased flexibility and the removal of import barriers. For Tipografic the merger offers contingency in its production capacity, access to the markets in Continental Europe and a guaranteed long term future while the company completes the transition from its original founders to the next generation. Combined, Royal Sens and Tipografic will ensure stability and predictability for our customers, who will benefit from our increased size and enhanced service levels. 

Both Tipografic and Royal Sens will remain focused on serving our customers with the same dedication and quality which we have always provided.

Sander Koster (CEO) and Gary Davey (MD Tipografic)
