August 21, 2012

The combined companies provide geographic and economic advantages while increasing print capacity.

Labelink, a label converter headquartered in Montreal, QC, Canada, has announced its acquisition of Markham, ON-based Labelad. Led by Labelink President Stephen Bouchard, Labelink assumed day-to-day management of the Labelad operation on August 3.

The strategic acquisition and immediate synergies will result in cost savings in the company's manufacturing of PS, shrink sleeve, roll-fed labels and flexible packaging products. Benefiting the combined customer base is full-scale manufacturing support with multiple locations in Quebec and Ontario. Additionally, the acquisition brings the introduction of a wider range of new products into both regions, as well as an increase in both flexographic and digital print capacity.

"These are truly exciting times for Labelink," Bouchard says. "The future has never been brighter with the combination of best-in-class low cost manufacturing expertise and some of the industry's most innovative product offerings making Labelink a true full-service packagng provider."

Joe Campbell, formerly Labelad's VP and general manager, is now Labelink's VP of sales.
