In a move described as being in line with growth plans to expand its presence in Ohio and the Midwest U.S., the California-based Western Shield Label Co. has acquired Label Print Technologies.

The financial terms of the deal have not been disclosed.

Label Print Technologies, based in Mogadore, Ohio, has been providing digital and flexographic label services since 2011 for demanding applications in the specialty food market, beverage, and thermal and direct thermal labels.

“Label Print Technologies provides a very exciting opportunity for Western Shield,” said Western Shield CEO Nizar Elias. “The second location in the Midwest greatly increases our capacity and capabilities in the region as well as offering a new breadth of products and services to Label Print Technologies’ existing client base.”

“Merging with Western Shield provides us with a major growth opportunity in terms of pursuing new business and offering additional products to our current clients,” Label Print Technologies president Jodi Westphal said in a statement. “With the stability and backing of Western Shield, our employees and customers will benefit from improved capabilities, products, services and innovation.”
