Mactac Purchases Canadian Roll Label Distributor, Label Supply

The acquisition is expected to close June 1 and expand Mactac’s reach in Canada.




Mactac (Stow, Ohio), a LINTEC Company, announced that it is acquiring Label Supply, headquartered in Whitby, Ontario, Canada. Label Supply has been servicing the Canadian roll label market for more than three decades, according to a press release from Mactac.

The acquisition is expected to close June 1, and consists of “an established, turnkey facility with 11 finishing assets, a comprehensive transportation/shipping fleet, robust laboratory and technical resource group, and an in-house ink partner,” per the release. “With the added support of Mactac, Label Supply benefits from a larger customer base, capital access, information technology, and broad, consistent product supply.”

The acquisition expands the geographic reach of both companies in the Canadian market, creating a service and product offering that provides specialty products, service, and large quantities to more customers throughout Eastern Canada.

“Label Supply runs a highly successful business that is fast, agile and customer service centric.  They excel at meeting small to medium converters’ needs within Ontario, Canada, particularly the greater Toronto region,” Ed LaForge, Mactac president and CEO, is quoted in the press release. “This acquisition, like others we’ve made within the past two years, will build upon the proven success of Label Supply. We will enhance what they do by broadening service throughout Eastern Canada and providing additional equipment and technology solutions that will also meet the needs of the region’s larger customers.”
