Quote from Paul Sykes, Production Manager at Bakers
“The continued challenge for us to be able to satisfy the demand from customers to provide them with a faster, even more efficient quality service was the driver behind us investing in two new slitters. The quality of the new ASHE Diamond and Solitaire slitters is fantastic and our Materials team have been working hard in training to adapt to the new kit.”

Why order from Baker Materials?
It’s with a pinch of sadness that we will be waving farewell to our sales administrator Natasha Kinsella at the end of this week as she heads off on her globe trotting travels.
Natasha has been with us at Baker Materials since graduating from university in September 2017 and we’ve really grown quite attached to her. However we cannot hold an adventurous young woman back and wish her well with her future endeavours. We’re sure you all feel the same.
We’d like to introduce you to Baker Materials’ new sales administrator Abbey Benstead.
Abbey joined Bakers in February this year and has moved over from the Baker Labels team to join Nicola Kender in Materials. Of course it’s much more fun over on our side of the office and the commute is the same so it wasn’t a difficult decision for Abbey to make! She’s looking forward to getting her teeth into the new role, but learning about our stock of 400 materials takes time so we appreciate your patience while she settles in.
We could “bearly” contain our squeals when we received these gorgeous images of Port Lympne resident Spectacled Bears playing with the cardboard cores we shipped to them this week.
Heavy duty cardboard cores are a waste product produced when we slit down the master reels of self adhesive materials for label production. Depending on demand we can build up at least one or two pallet loads of cardboard cores in a month. We looked for new ways to recycle the cores that could re-use them in their orignal state rather than having to be broken down which uses more energy. Having previously discovered the animal enrichment program at Colchester Zoo and delivering cores to them we contacted other wildlife reserves to see if we could help them too.
Port Lympne Reserve in Kent were quick to respond saying they thought the cardboard cores would be perfect for their Spectacled Bear pair Oberon and Rina. The name Spectacled Bear comes from the markings around their eyes that sometimes resembles spectacles. Port Lympne has the largest Spectacled Bear enclosure in Europe. Food was placed inside the tubes, keeping the bears both physically and mentally stimulated and promoting natural foraging behaviours. Judging by the photos, it looked like the tubes were a bit hit for the two beautiful bears.
