Construction

At Griffin-Rutgers, we understand the importance of durable, reliable labeling within the building and construction environment.  We offer a wide range of high-performance labelling solutions that work well within every sector of the building and construction industry that are suitable for all applications of building supplies, both commercial and residential.

Building products such as wood, metal and roofing materials require waterproof inks to ensure that in wet or rainy conditions, the information on the label is still legible. Many hardware items, such as nails, screws and assorted electrical parts come packaged in trays, blister packs, or cardboard boxes. Each packaging type has different labeling system requirements. The labels are not only used to track inventory, but quickly communicate the required information to the consumer.

Griffin-Rutgers sees the never-ending demand for consistent, accurate labeling, along with the need for print clarity and product tracking mechanisms throughout the packaging and distribution chain. As you consider the purchase, we can help you determine the best product identification (labeling and coding) system for your unique needs. Contact the professionals at Griffin-Rutgers, and we will put our experience to work to select the exact system for you.
