Labeltronix, a Southern California producer of high quality wine, food and consumer product labels, and supplier of on-demand label printers and supplies, celebrates its 20th year in business this month. The company – which has grown at an annualized rate of 30% in recent years – attributes its success to helping its clients advance their brands, and being an innovator.
Founded in Orange, CA, by Dan Blair and Eric Shepard, Labeltronix began by selling printers and labeling supplies. Ten years ago, the company bought its first printing press – a bold move to enter the market and compete with printers that have been in the business for 30 to 50 years.
As Labeltronix expanded, it outgrew the Orange facility and relocated in 2011 to a new 50,000-square-foot headquarters not far from Disneyland and Angel stadium. The Labeltronix building is strategically designed to make the labeling process run smoothly, and to inspire creativity among those who visit it for tours or educational seminars on printing and branding.
"We started from scratch. This month will be another record month in manufacturing – a real milestone. Every one of our labels is custom, high-quality and requires fine printing, so great effort and care goes into making them," says John Trail, Labeltronix president and partner with Shepard and Blair.
Labeltronix which has been a "gold" award winner in the international Flexographic Technical Association awards annually for the past five years. In 2010, Labeltronix earned its ISO 9001:2008 certification, a quality standard designation that it continues to uphold annually.
