Michigan Label acquires Accent Label Company

October 8, 2008

The acquisition gives the company significant hot stamping capability.

Michigan Label Inc. (MLI), located in Westland, MI, USA, has acquired Accent Label Company, a privately owned operation in Redford, MI, about 20 miles from Westland.
“This addition allows us to offer hot stamp labels to our current multi-color and four-color process customer base,” says MLI president Bob Qualls. “We also filled a need by adding a narrow web press to print our smaller quantity runs, and keep our eight color presses free for the premium label business.”
Accent Label’s assets, including two hot stamp presses and a 7” Mark Andy, were moved to MLI’s operation. The Redford plant has been closed.
MLI, a 21-year-old label converter that employs 20 people, services Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and Wisconsin. Qualls says that the company is looking to widen its customer base by adding sales reps in some eastern states.
Chuck Armaly, MLI’s vice president of sales, says that he has begun putting together a sales team to handle the company’s growth. “We are excited about some of the big opportunities we have landed,” Armaly says. “We are doing things right. We’ve been on overtime for the past eight to nine weeks and there’s no end in sight.”
