Like Heaford, OPM are a family business who put people at the heart of their business. Led by Chris Ellison, Managing Director and with over 40 years’ experience in this sector OPM are not only well know but also well respected. Innovators in their field they adopt a collaborative approach to all they do, in fact, Chris was previously elected President of FINAT, the European association for the self-adhesive label industry.
Nigel Heaford commented: “We’ve had a long and mutually beneficial relations with the team at OPM, who I have to say, are a pleasure to work with. They demonstrate such attention to detail and have a very personable approach, it’s really not surprising they are such a success!”
OPM purchased their first Heaford ELS model in 2000 and when they saw the FTS launched in 2013 they instantly recognised the benefits this would bring to their business as well as a definite return on investment. A second FTS was then installed 5 years later to support the growing production capacity within OPM.
Here’s what Chris Ellison, Director, OPM Group had to say about Heaford: “The Heaford mounting process is easy to understand and requires minimal training to operate the machine. The semi-automated camera system simplifies mounting, which allows accurate plate mounting position to be reached in seconds.
As a trusted family business we find Heaford has a sense of commitment and accountability for their products and a great understanding of our industry, with a team that sees the importance of building and maintaining strong customer relationships.”
