A family business that has been running for 46 years, hopes to spend 2019 giving back even more to its community.
Leading trade label printer Baker Labels, Hubert Road, Brentwood, was set up in King’s Cross by Roy and Marion Baker, in 1973 before their son Steve Baker took over alongside his wife Mandy, with help from their son Harry.
Having moved to Brentwood in 2011, it has continued to grow with more employees than ever, re-investing in the latest quality equipment and being at the forefront of label printing technology.
But it isn’t always about business, as Baker Labels has donated more than £50,000 to charities and worthy causes since making the move to the borough.
Managing director Steve Baker said: “Our team has always aimed to achieve the best results with every job they complete and the ‘can do’ attitude that we have worked hard to promote has proved invaluable in making Baker Labels a preferred partner of its customers.
“We are obviously running a business to be successful but we measure that success in many ways other than just financial.
“We genuinely care about our people, not just the conditions and equipment they have but equally their wellbeing.
“We also care about our local community and do what we can to support local charities and events.”
Two of the charities that Baker Labels supports are Kids Inspire which supports young people across Essex who are at an educational, social or economic disadvantage and GTCA (Georgia’s Teenage Cancer Appeal) which was set up in memory of Brentwood-born Georgia Cordery who died of cancer in 2010.
At Christmas Baker Labels decided to donate £5,000 to GTCA, £3,000 to Kids Inspire, as well as £3,000 to SNAP (Special Needs and Parents) and £2,000 worth of shopping to the Brentwood Foodbank.
Steve added: “We hope to continue to improve every year so that we are able to give back more to our staff and local community.”
