Resource LabelGroup merges with Mid South Graphics

August 14, 2007

Resource LabelGroup LLC, a manufacturer of high quality label products with locations in Franklin and Memphis, TN, USA, has completed a merger with Mid South Graphics of Nashville, TN.

Resource LabelGroup LLC, of Franklin, TN, USA, has merged with Nashville, TN-based Mid South Graphics Inc. Both companies are to be located at Resource LabelGroup’s headquarters.

Resource LabelGroup has been in the label converting business since 1987, serving many major end-use markets. The group’s merger with Mid South Graphics expands the company’s offerings into the technology-driven RFID sector.

Resource LabelGroup’s CEO, Allen Barnes, says, “Packaging buyers and consumer packaged goods companies are exploring technology at such a fast pace, and they’re looking to their label suppliers to expand their service offerings beyond printed pressure sensitive prime labels. It’s imperative that label converters grow and change in order to become effective solution providers. The merge with Mid South Graphics catapults Resource LabelGroup to the highest level of application engineering expertise across narrow web technologies, and a turnkey range of services that will meet our customers’ needs well into the future.”

Founded in 1957, Mid South Graphics was a pioneer in the computerized labeling and application industry, and in 1991 the company shifted its primary focus to the production of specialty tags and labels. Mid South entered the RFID arena in 2002, and today RFID applications make up more than 30 percent of the company’s total revenues.

Mark Davenport, CEO of Mid South Graphics, has been appointed President of Mid South RFID, a newly formed division of Resource LabelGroup. “I have always viewed ResourceLabel Group as one of the highest quality, customer-driven operations in the industry and I’m very excited about the merger between our two companies,” he says. “ResourceLabel’s prime label converting capabilities, coupled with Mid South’s smart label expertise, will present a unique opportunity to our customers and to our employees.”
