To deliver the right solution, the company last November teamed up with its label material supplier UPM Raflatac.
“The support we get has been fast and good, and always to the point. For the past years, we have had several projects together, and naturally, UPM Raflatac came right on top of the list for this project,” the company’s owner Andreas Jost tells.
Decades of research put to test in vaccine cold chain
As one of the world’s leading producers of self-adhesive label materials, UPM Raflatac has devoted decades of research and development to engineer world-class label solutions for the requirements of the pharmaceutical and health care industries.
Pharmaceutical labels with full regulatory compliance
In AJK Etiketten’s case, the labels are required to withstand the harsh condition – down to -80°C in storage – during the transportation and distribution process and continue to stay in place when they are transferred into ultra-cold freezers at health clinics until final use. The label materials need to adhere well even to moist and cold surfaces, ensure legible printing, and remain securely intact after harsh storage and handling, without absorbing moisture or tearing.
With the technical expertise, global pre-tested label material range, and change management control to ensure long-term availability, UPM Raflatac was able to act swiftly and assist AJK in providing the right labeling solutions to match the demanding needs.

“We decided together with AJK to go for a label adhesive that is specially designed for the intended application conditions to make sure that the material will withstand the required temperature, with the swift rollout we need to operate with lowest risk strategy”, Mihaela Kreh, Sales Manager at UPM Raflatac in Germany, explains.
When the whole world is eager to unwind the Covid-19 pandemic, the supply must be quick and dependable. “UPM Raflatac’s delivery time was exceptionally quick. With a partner like them there is real potential for us to play a bigger role in the market, both for the proven cold chain labeling solution and the vaccine labeling – a winning combination for all parties involved,” Andreas Jost concludes.
