ProMach, Cincinnati, acquired Code Tech Corp., a Princeton, N.J.-based provider of thermal inkjet (TIJ) marking and coding solutions, thus expanding ProMach’s labeling and coding solutions portfolio.

Code Tech provides date coding, track and trace, serialization and anti-counterfeiting solutions for the food and beverage and consumer product industries, among others.

“ProMach already had one of the most robust lineups of labeling and coding solutions in the marketplace with highly regarded product brands, including ID Technology, EPI, Greydon, P.E. Labellers, Packlab, Axon, NJM and WLS,” says Alan Shipman, president of ProMach’s labeling and coding business line. “With the addition of Code Tech’s solutions for cartons, cases, films and containers, our coding portfolio and thermal inkjet lineup is now second to none in the industry.”

Code Tech leadership, sales, engineering and customer service staff will join the ProMach labeling and coding team. Michael Shaw, chief executive officer of Code Tech, and Dina Lewisohn Shaw, chief operating officer, will continue leading development of thermal inkjet solutions as part of ProMach.

“ProMach has shown a serious commitment to growing their labeling and coding lineup in the past few years, and we’re excited to be a part of that growth story,” says Shaw. “This will immediately help us continue our rapid expansion into the marketplace, as we leverage the power of the vast ProMach sales team to bring our cutting-edge TIJ technology to customers throughout North America and Latin America.”
