Ohio-based ProMach recently announced it has bought Lofton Label & Packaging in Minnesota.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
ProMach, which makes processing and packaging machinery, said in a news release that Lofton will expand ProMach’s labeling and coding capabilities.
Founded in 1981 in the Minneapolis–St. Paul metropolitan area, Lofton provides flexographic and digital label and film printing capabilities for products and packaging, including flexible packaging rollstock films, stand-up pouches, sachets, and stick packs.
Additionally, Lofton produces specialty label solutions, including global product authentication service labels for track and trace, brand protection, and consumer engagement. It also produces extended content labels, instant redeemable coupons, as well as multi-layer peel and resealable labels.
Lofton serves various industries, including agriculture; animal health; food and beverage; health and beauty; industrial chemical; nutraceuticals/supplements; and wine, beer, and spirits.
The deal continues an expansion that started more than a decade ago, according to Mark Anderson, ProMach president and CEO.
“This further bolsters our vision of providing our North American customers with comprehensive labeling and coding solutions and support from a partner that is close to them, wherever they are,” he said in a statement.
Rick Gajewski, founder and president of Lofton Label & Packaging, said in a statement that ProMach has a track record of investing in its companies and leveraging their strengths. “Plus, current ProMach customers will now have greater access to more options than before,” he added.
Mike Gaughan, chief operating officer of Lofton Label & Packaging, will continue leading the Lofton team, comprising over 70 employees in its Twin Cities suburban location.
ProMach is headquartered near Cincinnati, Ohio, with manufacturing facilities and offices throughout North America, Europe, South America, and Asia.
