PPL can trace its history back to the beginning of the last century as one of the first companies to produce labels for Dispensing Chemists and continues to be the market leader today.

Welcome to PPL

PPL combines its traditional pharmacy labelling business with cutting edge, high technology, bespoke labelling supplying a wide range of national and multi-national organisations.

As one of the few companies in the world capable of the creation, print and conversion of self-adhesive laminates in a single process, PPL is able to produce innovative products and creative solutions which can enhance presentation and increase profitability though reduced costs and waste.


PPL is able to trace it’s origins back to 1878 when as part of Thomas Waide & Sons we began supplying gummed labels and pill envelopes to Chemists.

As self-adhesive materials were introduced and computers became part of the dispensing process we have changed our products to reflect the requirements for labels

In 1996 we started supplying labels to The Royal Mail and in seeking to satisfy their demands invested firstly in machinery to print more colours and then in the ability to create, print and convert self-adhesive laminates in a single process. Few companies in the world are able to achieve this and offer the special products which can be created.

In 2011 we became the only supplier of Dispensing labels that manufactures the laminate used to create the labels. This means that we are able to use an adhesive which is better able to meet the needs of modern dispensing which required adhesion to a wide variety of substrates.
