US-based label and shrink sleeve provider Resource Label has acquired QSX Labels in an effort to bolster its presence in the US’ New England region.
Based in Everett, Massachusetts, QSX Labels offers digital, flexographic and screen-printed custom labels, including advanced finishing capabilities.
The company also provides graphic overlays, domed labels and nameplates among other label products.
It was founded in 1957 as New England Industrial Supply, before rebranding as The Quik Stick Label Company and finally QSX Labels.
The financial terms of the transaction have not been disclosed.
QSX Labels owner Robert Karess said: “We are excited to be a part of the Resource Label Group family.
“Their focus on delivering a strong network of capabilities and services for customers has established them as an industry leader and the right partner for QSX.”
As well as expanding its regional presence, the deal is intended to strengthen Resource Label’s position within the label and packaging industry.
Resource Label president and CEO Mike Apperson said: “The team at QSX Labels has built an impressive business and will add significant expertise in New England.
“Their focus on service and exceeding the needs of customers make them a welcome member of the Resource Label Group family.”
Based in Franklin, Tennessee, Resource Label offers pressure sensitive labels, shrink sleeves and radio frequency identification (RFID) and near-field communication (NFC) technology for the packaging industry.
The company serves a range of sectors, including the food, beverage, chemical, household products, personal care and pharmaceutical industries.
It currently operates 22 manufacturing facilities across North America, employing more than 1,600 people in total.
The addition of QSX Labels marks Resource Label’s 23rd acquisition to date.
In October last year, Resource Label acquired e-commerce label company StickerGiant for undisclosed terms.
