Safety Seal Plastic has agreed to buy the shrink sleeve business of Jones Packaging Inc. of London, Ontario, according to Plasticnews.com. The Guelph Mercury newspaper also reports that, as a result of the purchase, Safety Seal plans to move the shrink sleeve operation to Guelph after purchasing a 50,000-square-foot building in the Ontario city.
Plasticnews.com reports the current Safety Seal operation in Hamilton, Ont., is on four levels and accounts for just 18,000 square feet in area. Safety Seal operates eight printing presses, explains Plasticnews.com, as well as seaming machines, cutting machines and slitters to make shrink sleeves for customers in food and beverage, pharmaceutical, consumer goods and other industries.
Safety Seal Plastics was formed in 1989 to provide PVC (polyvinyl chloride) tamper-evident bands to the pharmaceutical and food industries. The company grew to become one of North America’s largest shrink sleeve manufacturers. Safety Seal states its major breakthrough came five years ago when it began printing multicoloyred shrink sleeves on a new eight-colour Chromas LXflexo.
Safety Seal’s client base include major brands like Ocean Spray, Associated Brands, E.D. Smith & Sons, Patheon, McCormick Canada, Bausch & Lomb, Cadbury Schweppes, Ciba Vision, Renee’s Gourmet Foods, Lounsbury Foods, Novopharm, Pfizer Canada, Stoney Creek Dairy, Trophy Foods, Unico and Wrigley.
