Abbott Label, a family-owned label manufacturer based in Dallas, TX, USA, has announced it has acquired Brandt Affixing, a Carrolton, TX-based trade-only supplier of a wide variety of affixed and integrated products.
Abbott Label is a leading manufacturer of stock, custom and digital labels with a longstanding and growing national customer base of both distributors and re-sellers. Brandt Affixing’s expertise lies in affixed and integrated labels, cards and bar code products. The acquisition of Brandt Affixing, a long-time Abbott resource, will provide both companies new capabilities and increased convenience for customers.
“We’re excited about adding Brandt Affixing to the Abbott Label family,” says John Abbott, president of Abbott Label. “Not only does this acquisition totally align with our growth strategy, the synergy is ideal, as we’ve always shared the same core values. And because of our synergy and long history of working together, the transition promises to be smooth and a true benefit for everyone.”
“This is an ideal fit for us,” comments Ed Brandt, former owner and managing partner of Brandt Affixing, “One that will ensure that our customers will continue to receive the exemplary service and highest quality that they have come to expect from Abbott Label and Brandt Affixing. We are excited to be able to expand our product offering with Abbott Label. Our specialty product line is a perfect complement to Abbott Label’s broad product line of stock, custom and digitally printed labels.”
”It’s a ‘win-win’ for both companies, and for our customers and employees as well,” adds Beverly Grimley, former owner and managing partner of Brandt Affixing added. “We are excited about being part of the Abbott Label family, and are looking forward to implementing many of the LEAN manufacturing processes that have made them such a successful and well run company.”
Abbott Label plans to move all Brandt employees, equipment and operations to Abbott Label’s facility at 10865 Sanden Drive in Dallas. Both companies adhere to a strict “trade-only” sales policy, with no direct sales to end-users. Former Brandt Affixing owners Beverly Grimley and Ed Brandt will remain with Abbott Label in managerial roles, and all Brandt Affixing employees are expected to join Abbott Label.
