Fortis Buys Kala Packaging

Fortis Solutions Group has bought Utah-based Kala Packaging, a printer of pressure-sensitive labels and flexible packaging that offers variable content printing, anti-counterfeit solutions, and food-safe flexible packaging.

“We are fortunate to join forces with such an outstanding team and are excited to further the value-added offerings we provide,” said John O. Wynne, Jr., Fortis president and CEO.

Kala President and CEO Maui Chai said technology has always been an important company characteristic. “Supporting our customers as a vital extension of their operation is a foundational principle at Kala. Fortis understands the importance of these relationships and will persist in the continual removal of industry barriers that our customers have enjoyed with Kala over the past 18 years.”

Employing over 850 employees across 14 sites, Fortis intends to continue its pursuit of acquisitions, the company said in a news release. Fortis is owned by Main Post Partners, a private equity investment firm.
