Over the last 20 years Brothers range of label printers have become "standard equipment" for thousands of electricians worldwide.
The PT-7600 and PT-7100 have so far been well received at the previous Elex shows this year, and Glasgow was no exception. General attendance was a little lower than expected, but it was great to see that those who did attend we enthusiastic
