I.D. Images acquires Specialty Tape & Label

July 6, 2010

The acquisition brings such capabilities as digital printing and multi-web handling for combination forms.

I.D. Images announced that it has acquired the assets of Specialty Tape & Label, a converter based in Chicago, IL, USA. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed. Specialty Tape & Label is the second acquisition over the past year for I.D. Images.

“The acquisition enhances I.D. Images' capabilities with unique technology, equipment and processes,” says President Brian Gale. “Enhanced capabilities include digital printing as well as unique multi-web handling for combination forms, coupons and integrated cards to name a few. The acquisition also enlarges our distribution footprint to meet the growing demand of variable information labeling media products in the region. These capabilities align strategically with I.D. Images’ long-term focus on higher value growth segments like healthcare, food, electronics, chemical and consumer durables.

“We’re very excited about the acquisition, as it will provide our collective customer base with a host of new capabilities, products, and services to better serve their customers,” says Gale. “Specialty Tape & Label has a history of providing unique solutions to technically challenging applications. Both companies share a 'customer first' approach to business. We look forward to working with Al, Ken and Rick Paveza and the team at Specialty Tape.”

I.D. Images will continue to maintain operations at the existing Specialty Tape & Label facility and expects to expand products distributed out of that facility to better service customers in that region, Gale adds

I.D. Images was founded in 1995 and is based in Brunswick, OH, USA. The company specializes in variable information labeling, and provides labels for product and package identification across varied markets including transport and logistics, retail, food and beverage, office products, consumer durables, and healthcare. I.D. Images sells exclusively through distribution with a primary focus on packaging distributors, value added resellers and other label converters.
