WE LOVE WRISTBANDS!
Founded by Chris and Gill Wilkey on their kitchen table in Royal Tunbridge Wells, ID&C entered the world back in 1995 with a vision to become the most respected and forward thinking wristband and accreditation supplier in the world. ID&C's passion for wristbands and its innovative approach to security print has helped the business realise this dream over the last 25+ years with established locations in the UK and USA and customers in more than 100 countries.
In January 2020 ID&C was acquired by CCL Industries
(a world leader in specialty label, security and packaging solutions for global corporations, government institutions, small businesses and consumers) and now forms part of CCL's Avery
segment. The business continues to be run by Matt Wilkey who takes a very hands on approach to the day to day running of the business.
ID&C stands for Identification & Control, which is the core of our business, but a lot has changed since 1995. In 1999 ID&C introduced the UK's first fabric wristband at Glastonbury Festival; a product which is now widely used at festivals and events around the world. While the business still supplies millions of tyvek, vinyl, fabric and silicone wristbands to all kinds of events, ID&C now also provide a whole range of accreditation products such as lanyards, laminate passes, festival guides and ID cards.
ID&C strives to always make the latest wristband technology available to its customers. With more events switching to cashless payments and faster access control with the use of RFID and NFC technology, ID&C are proud to be leading the way in innovative and forward thinking concepts. ID&C also holds a number of patents on wristband technology developed in-house.
