About Murrplastik

Murrplastik GmbH was founded in Oppenweiler, Germany in 1963 by Horst Hölzl and Andreas Fröhlich as a manufacturer of plastic articles for household use. By 1984, Murrplastik had moved into manufacturing plastics solutions for industrial use, with its patent application for the first openable cable drag chain. Shortly after, in 1986, Murrplastik developed the first computer-aided labelling system (ACS) for single wires, clamps and control gears. In 1990, plastic conduit solutions expanded the product range and, by 1993, Murrplastik had developed its first cable entry systems.

Today, we provide plastic solutions to your unique challenges in the areas of cable drag chains, conduit and fitting systems, cable entry systems, automation and robotic equipment and labelling systems. Our high-tech plastic products can be found worldwide in just about every industrial sector, ranging from the rail and automotive industry, through to toolmaking and mechanical engineering, electrical and medical engineering, packaging and woodworking.

As an international company, we operate a global network of branches and offices in France, Italy, Switzerland, Spain, the United States and China. We are also represented by many offices in Europe, North and South America, Africa, Australia and Asia. Our UK subsidiary opened in 1983 alongside our sister company Murrelektronik. Today, the UK team provides expert advice and sales support, account management, a technical helpdesk and a team of National Sales Engineers, on hand to provide application advice and support to our wealth of UK customers.

Labelling Systems – A world leading manufacturer of industrial labelling systems

Murrplastik is the world’s leading manufacturer of manual and computer-controlled labelling systems. We manufacture a diverse range of industrial label printers and systems, including: plotters, Inkjet printers, engraving machines, laser printers and thermal transfer systems. All our labelling systems use our universal (ACS) labelling software and provide you with all the colours, numbers, symbols and plain text you might need. It’s the quick and uncomplicated way to create meaningful labels in-house for your machines and systems.

The Murrplastik labelling system facilitates the labelling of single wires, terminal blocks, control gear, push buttons, signal lamps, components and cable labels – irrespective of make and type. Of course, each of our labelling systems offer different outputs and material properties, so some labelling systems are better suited to particular industrial applications than others. Fortunately, our UK customers benefit from the expert knowledge and technical advice from our Labelling Systems Technical Sales Manager, who is on hand to talk you through the various labelling system options.
