The Watershed Group Difference

Industry leading labelling technology

The Watershed Group is an Irish, family owned, international supplier of self adhesive labels, unsupported film and carton sleeves with five specialist sites across Europe. Corporate headquarters is based in Dublin, along with two manufacturing sites in Dublin and Tipperary, respectively. Other group sites in Poland, the UK and Germany are strategically placed to service the needs of European based companies with multiple plants.

The group produces a comprehensive range of innovative, best-in-class labelling and packaging solutions for the food, beverage, consumer and retail sectors for many of Europe’s leading brands.

“Watershed Group is the first and only approved label supplier to Asda Walmart in the 32 counties of Ireland”.

Operational Advantages

Technology: Consistent investment into the latest printing technology, over the last five years, including the purchase of ten Mark Andy award winning, P5 series flexographic printing presses has placed the Watershed Group’s print quality at the forefront of Europe’s self-adhesive and printed top web film industry.

“There is no doubt that today’s HD-Flexo technology is a commercial match for any print process, and offers significant advantages in certain areas such as colour vibrancy”.


Our recent addition of a first to market, hybrid digital concept, the Mark Andy Digital Series the first of its kind in Ireland and the U.K ensures that the Watershed Group remains at the forefront of the European print packaging industry. Future proofed by its capability to respond to any changes in market demands, the Digital Series delivers top quality print, at speeds previously unachievable in digital.

Quality: One of the benefits of the quality produced on the Mark Andy presses is the ability it gives the group to sell in to traditionally offset markets.

By offering added value finishing inline, such as screen, cold foil, hot foil, embossing, tactile varnishing, sequential numbering, reverse printing and laminating we can offer premium labels to any market sector – and significantly, differentiate ourselves from other label converters.


Commercial: Faster operating speeds on the latest presses means we can offer a range of new top quality print options, real cost saving benefits and quicker lead times to our international customer base. Our full, Esko, studio, finger printed to all Watershed production sites, produces zero dot clarity, delivering offset standard printing at flexographic prices. Industry leading quality results are achieved from fully accredited European BRC Grade A/HAACP and ISO standards sites.

“Running at unrivalled speeds of 70mpm, the Digital Series offers maximum flexibility for single pass printing”


Investment: Recent investment into the latest printing technologies, both in line and off line has enabled us to also service the high-quality drinks, pharma and body care sectors.

“At the Watershed Group, we are acutely aware that our product is the first thing that your customers see and therefore it must have maximum impact and exceed expectations.”
