ProMach has acquired Jet Label & Packaging, a move that will expand its labelling and coding capabilities and provide customers across Canada with enhanced sales and support, it says.
Founded in 1998 and headquartered in Edmonton, Alta., Jet Label manufactures labels and printed tape for a range of industries, including food and beverage, consumer packaged goods, pharmaceuticals, agriculture, forestry, transportation, grocery stores, and mass-market retailers. Jet Label also manufactures labels for industrial applications, producing water- and weatherproof labels for harsh environments. Jet Label provides sales, service and support from seven offices throughout Western Canada, from Vancouver to Winnipeg.
“We’re pleased to welcome the outstanding Jet Label team to ProMach” says Mark Anderson, ProMach President and CEO. “With the addition of Jet, ProMach continues our label converting expansion that began over a decade ago with the vision of providing our North American customers with a labelling and coding partner that could serve all their needs – including labels, machinery, sales, service and support – that is close to wherever they are. Bringing Jet into the ProMach family helps us fill in a significant piece of this vision with their strong operational base and well-earned reputation for providing solutions across all of Western Canada.”
ProMach’s ID Technology product brand has six existing label converting facilities throughout North America, with locations in California, Texas, Wisconsin, Georgia, New Hampshire, and Ontario that provide flexographic labels, blank and shell labels, digital labels, synthetic labels, and more. ID Technology also provides a range of labelling and coding systems, offering customers ranging from small local startups to national retailers with a solution that includes both labels and machinery, supported by a network of more than 15 sales and service offices. The addition of Alberta-based Jet Label now adds a seventh flagship converting facility as well as additional sales and service offices so customer needs can be met by a local team of labelling and coding personnel.
Darrell Friesen, President & CEO of Jet Label, along with Rod Froment, Vice President & COO of Jet Label, will continue leading the Jet Label team, spanning over 80 employees across its multiple locations. Also joining ProMach is Jet Label’s sister company, Jet Marking Systems, a provider of label applicators, industrial printers, tracking and traceability solutions, as well as other ancillary equipment, led by Dan Stickney, General Manager of Jet Marking Systems.
“ProMach understands the importance of being close to the customer, which is a core value for Jet Label,” said Friesen. “Their vision for how to support labelling customers is perfectly in line with our own, which makes this a great partnership. From our days as a single-press, single-client startup over two decades ago, to becoming one of Western Canada’s most prominent label manufacturers, to now being a part of ProMach’s Labeling & Coding portfolio, it’s been an amazing journey and I’m looking forward to many years of continued growth and success.”
