Coding & Marking specialist’s direct experience of Icoder TIJ printers and Bestcode CIJ printers set to ensure seamless transition of Icoder business


One of the UK’s leading specialists in high performance coding and marking systems, Sheffield-based Needham Coding (+44 (0) 114 2570007; – part of The Needham Group – will be supplying the consumables, service and support for Icoder printers with immediate effect.


Icoder supplied own brand thermal ink jet printers and was the UK distributor for Bestcode continuous ink jet printers. The Icoder business transferred to Needham Coding following the announcement that it was set to cease trading from the end of last year due to the retirement of Managing Director, Nick Miller.


Aled Ellis, Managing Director at The Needham Group comments: “It is our pleasure to continue to support Icoder printers and we are committed to ensuring the smooth transition of the business. Our team will do everything in their power to provide first class service delivery to Icoder customers going forward.


He continues: “The fact that Nick approached us in the first instance is testament to Needham Coding’s unrivalled reputation and expertise in the supply, installation and continued support of coding and marking systems in the UK.


“Plus we have direct experience of Icoder thermal ink jet printers and Bestcode continuous ink jet printers,” Aled adds.


The Needham Coding / Icoder agreement follows the transfer of the Sauven Marking ink business to sister company, Needham Inks in a similar arrangement. Since 2015, Needham Inks has been supplying Sauven ink products including oil, solvent and cleaner ink cartridges and spray bottles to the food, beverage, pharmaceutical, industrial and electronics industries for in-line product coding, marking and identification.


Needham Coding also offers on-going servicing and repair of Sauven contact and non-contact printers.

“Backed by a UK wide team of field service technicians we look forward to building long-term relationships with Icoder customers in the future,” Aled concludes.
