York Label and Pago Group have formed a partnership focusing on international customer expansion and support, innovation and technology exchange and operational and efficiency benchmarking. York is based in Omaha, NE, USA, and Pago is headquartered in Grabs, Switzerland.
The companies collectively have more than 20 facilities, 140 printing presses, 1,900 employees, and serve the household and personal care, food and beverage, wine and spirits, and healthcare markets. The companies remain independent with respect to ownership structure and local business activity.
“We are excited to partner with Pago and leverage each other’s manufacturing capabilities, innovation pipeline, customer base, operational footprint, and supply chain efficiencies, which provide our customers with a true compelling global supply solution,” says Dave Klotter, York’s vice president of sales and marketing.
Dirk Lautenschlager, director of the Pago Business Unit Product Decoration International, adds: “We are very happy to close this partnership with York Label, a company with similar targets and strategies as we’re following. The central point is to create an extended service structure for our mutual multi-national customers. By doing so, technology exchange and joint developments will drive both of us further for the benefit of our customers.”
