Press Release Strategic Partnership with Kernow Coatings and OKI Europe Ltd

OKI Europe Limited are pleased to announce a key strategic partnership with Kernow Coatings and Baker Materials to further develop and address a range of specialist media requirements across a number of different and durable label applications.


“As a part of OKI’s continued expansion providing solutions for printing labels in house, we are seeing an increased demand for specialist media requirements, particularly in the area of durability.

As such it is important that we can help customers understand how to source and create durable labels, which might need to withstand a range of conditions such as chemicals, water, abrasion etc.

The range of synthetic durable media from Kernow Coatings provides outstanding results on OKI printing machines and are the perfect match to suit these high-quality application requirements that customers demand, ranging from beauty and cosmetics, through plant tags to beer bottles and a whole host more, giving businesses the ability to print a huge range of labels in-house and on-demand.

Recognising how important it is to source media in a ‘ready to print’ format, quickly and easily, Baker Materials are now holding stock of the Kernow materials approved to run on the OKI Pro10xx. Using their extensive experience and first class facilities Bakers are able to offer conversion into a wide range of finished stocks ready to run on the OKI Pro10xx roll to roll label printer”. Rob Brown, EMEA Head of Business Development, Pro Series.

“As current stockists of a range of Kernow Coatings products we’re delighted to add this new range to our product list. At Bakers we pride ourselves on fast turnarounds and low minimum order quantities of over 400 different label substrates, that allow our customers to keep their presses running no matter what the material demand is.” Paul Sykes, Production Manager at Bakers.
