Matform Delivers a Cut and Dry Solution 

Labels applied to the exterior of tractors need to not only withstand the elements but last for decades, which is why one of the country's leading tractor and combine specialists selected Matform to supply new long-lasting waterproof labels for its machinery.

C&O Tractors Ltd sells New Holland tractors, balers and combine harvesters to both national and international customers. It also sells quad bikes and garden machinery.

The supplier needed new labels for its tractors and agricultural machinery. In the past, the labels it used had peeled off and the writing became illegible; in short, they didn't stand the test of time.

So C&O Tractors searched online for a new supplier and found Matform. Before placing an order, C&O Tractors spent time talking to Matform, ensuring they could supply labels that are durable and waterproof, as tractors and agricultural machinery regularly undergo power washing and are exposed to the elements.

Matform was brought on board to produce 3,000 oval labels; 1,000 each in small, medium and large sizes. The labels feature C&O Tractors' logo and contact details.

The process used to produce the labels ensures longevity; they are reverse-printed on clear PVC and the colours are built up from the back - this prevents fading or wearing off.

Catherine Snow, Marketing Co-ordinator at C&O Tractors said, "When we sell a new tractor now we know it will still be in the field in 20 years' time. So we were looking for labels that were good quality and would still be advertising in decades to come.

"The labels have gone on very well and are suitable for everything from combine harvesters through to quad bikes. We're extremely happy not only with the labels but with the efficient service we received from Matform, who were very helpful and delivered a quick turnaround," added Catherine.
