Label Tech was established in 1992 by the father of our current MD, James Costello. The ethos of the business has always been based on quality and service. We like “going the extra mile” to ensure our customers are completely satisfied. In 2002, David Keogh, a Chartered Accountant, joined as a shareholder, Chairman and Finance Director. David’s passion for change and innovation was a perfect match for Label Tech’s commitment to going above and beyond for our customers. Together, James and David began growing the business through significant investment in people, new technologies and production capabilities.
This dynamic environment has allowed Label Tech to continue to not only meet, but exceed our customer’s expectations. At Label Tech we believe a company is only as good as its people. That’s why we take the time to invest in ours, by fostering talent and encouraging people to grow within the company. It’s about getting the right people on the bus, and then in the right seats. We believe we have achieved this.
As our name suggests, Label Tech also has a strong interest in the technical side of printing. Our staff are continuously researching and reviewing the latest technological innovations across the industry to bring you the best labelling solutions possible. We take a lot of pride in the work we do. Nothing is too much trouble for our customers, whether that means pulling together to rush out a last minute order, or taking the time to find the perfect finish for your product. It’s this commitment and expertise that has allowed us to retain our strong and longstanding customer base over the last two decades.

Label Tech was established in 1992 with 5 employees. Our goal was to fill the 'quick turnaround' gap that we identified in the label sector in Ireland.
Some of our key staff members had extensive experience in the sector already, so we had many contacts on both the customer and supply side of the business. With support from these loyal contacts, we were able to quickly grow Label Tech's sales pipeline and secure our position as a quality label printer.
In 1995 Label Tech won the Microsoft Windows ’95 pan-European labelling contract. This growth required investment in a new state of the art 6 colour Mark Andy 2200 UV Flexo machine to deliver on requirements.
This printer went onto become a game changer by facilitating a move into the FMCG market with its multi-colour capability.
