The company was founded in 1928 as Brown-Bridge Mills by two Troy businessmen: Herbert Brown and Perce Bridge. From its humble beginnings as a manufacturer of water sensitive conventional gummed papers and cloths, Brown-Bridge saw its family of products expand extensively over the years to now being Spinnaker Coating LLC, an employee-owned company.
“Today, our expanding product line is used throughout the label printing and converting industry in a wide variety of applications, including food packaging, health and wellness, chemical and drum labeling, as well as brand protection/security” says Mike Marasch, vice president of roll sales and marketing. “Combined with the industry-leading service we provide to our customers, we strongly believe that the company and our employee owners are well-prepared to continue to provide the service and innovation that our customers have come to expect from Spinnaker. We believe that we are positioned for a bright and thriving future for Spinnaker and all of its stakeholders.”
