ProMach, Cincinnati, acquired Jet Label & Packaging, a Canada-based producer of labels for a variety of industries. This addition expands ProMach’s labeling and coding capabilities.
Jet Label manufactures labels and printed tape for a broad range of industries, including food and beverage, consumer packaged goods, agriculture, forestry, transportation, grocery stores and mass-market retailers. Jet Label also manufactures labels for industrial applications, producing a range of durable, water- and weatherproof labels for harsh environments.
“We’re pleased to welcome the outstanding Jet Label team to ProMach,” says Mark Anderson, president and CEO of ProMach. “With the addition of Jet, ProMach continues our label converting expansion that began over a decade ago with the vision of providing our North American customers with a labeling and coding partner that could serve all their needs, including labels, machinery, sales, service and support that is close to wherever they are. Bringing Jet into the ProMach family helps us fill in a significant piece of this vision with their strong operational base and well-earned reputation for providing solutions across all of Western Canada.”
The addition of Jet Label now adds a seventh flagship converting facility as well as additional sales and service offices ProMach’s portfolio, which also includes ID Technology’s six label converting facilities throughout North America.
Darrell Friesen, president and CEO of Jet Label, along with Rod Froment, vice president and COO of Jet Label, will continue leading the Jet Label team. Also joining ProMach is Jet Label’s sister company, Jet Marking Systems, a provider of label applicators, industrial printers, tracking and traceability solutions, as well as other ancillary equipment, led by Dan Stickney, general manager of Jet Marking Systems.
“ProMach understands the importance of being close to the customer, which is a core value for Jet Label,” says Friesen. “Their vision for how to support labeling customers is perfectly in line with our own, which makes this a great partnership. We have many existing loyal customers who will now have immediate access to an expanded network of labels, machinery, service and support with ID Technology’s existing infrastructure, as well as access to ProMach’s innovative packaging equipment portfolio that runs from the front to the end of the packaging line. From our days as a single-press, single-client startup over two decades ago to becoming one of Western Canada’s most prominent label manufacturers to now being a part of ProMach’s labeling and coding portfolio, it’s been an amazing journey, and I’m looking forward to many years of continued growth and success.”
“The addition of Jet Label, with their offices across Western Canada, immediately expands the coverage for our North American national customers,” says Alan Shipman, president of ProMach’s labeling and coding business unit. “Combine that with Jet Label’s cutting-edge technologies and capabilities, from digital printing, single-pass RFID insertion, precision color-matching, 24/7 operation and total platform redundancy, and ProMach is well-positioned to continue helping customers of all shapes and sizes grow their business with a single source partner for labels, equipment, service and support.”
