Tapp buys Ben Franklin Press & Label

April 10, 2013

Tapp Label Technologies (TLT), a manufacturer of pressure sensitive labels for the wine and spirits industry, has purchased the assets of Ben Franklin Press & Label (BFP&L) of Napa, CA, USA, for an undisclosed amount. Under the transaction, TLT, with operations in Napa and Vancouver, Canada, has also hired around 30-36 employees of BFP&L.

Since its establishment in 1983 by BFP&L President and General Manager Dennis Patterson and proprietor Teri Ann Faychild, the company has been providing printed products such as pressure sensitive and wet-glue/cut and stack labels for the wine and spirits industries.

Purchasing the assets of BFP&L will allow TLT to increase its offerings, which currently includes three distinct printing and packaging platforms – waterless offset lithography, flexography and digital offset. Patterson said the acquisition will allow Tapp to offer customers with expanded goods, product lines and service capabilities.

“All of us at BFP&L are extremely pleased to join Tapp Label Technologies because of our like-minded commitment to our customers’ success and how we approach serving the wine and spirits marketplace,” Patterson says
