ATLAS for Industry was founded by David Nethercote at home in 1998. ‘ATLAS’ was a family effort, together coming up with a name reflecting the first products available; Adhesive, Tapes, Labels, And Stretch wrap. Over the years the business has grown from humble beginnings in the family study to the current premises in Co. Armagh, Northern Ireland. Over time the business has evolved and we now supply and manufacture a much larger and ever expanding range of adhesive and industrial tapes, adhesive labels (plain, printed/bespoke), tags, packaging and paper products throughout the UK and Ireland.
Our service is personal and professional, with the customer at the centre of the journey; we take pride in getting to know our customers and establishing a strong working relationship – many of our products are designed personally for you, and your input is essential to the success of the project – no bespoke orders will be processed before every stage has been confirmed by you. Using an existing logo, for example, may represent quite a swift turnaround but if you are a new company, or have a rebrand in mind the design process can take longer – all part of the service!
Once confirmed, your design is passed to the production team; many of our products are made in our own factory by skilled operators. The manufacturing side of the business began with a simple slitting machine in rented premises but at the point of expansion, production was also moved on-site and over time manufacturing has expanded and we can print labels and tapes in up to 9 colours, and have large production capacity for laser labels and meat tags. Branded stationery is also produced on-site.
Not all our products are bespoke, we carry a large range of stock products in standard sizes, please see our homepage and products page for more information.
Whether standard or bespoke, the ‘raw materials’ used to produce your goods are of the highest possible quality from carefully selected suppliers; we are proud to be affiliated with well known brands such as 3M, Manuli, Raflatac, Fasson, Avery, Adhere Industrial Tapes Limited, and the most recent addition, Teufelberger.
