The Kennedy Group Acquires Label Technique Southeast
The Kennedy Group, Willoughby, Ohio, officially announced the successful acquisition of Label Technique Southeast, based in Pensacola, Fla. This is the company's second strategic acquisition in one year.
A logical extension of The Kennedy Group portfolio, Label Technique Southeast was founded in 1979 as a manufacturer of specialty and custom labels serving the food and produce market. The company produces primary and secondary labeling while leveraging digital printing with sequential numbering and 2-D barcoding. The Kennedy Group also looks to leverage the production capabilities that the plant offers by introducing to its customers new products such as Roll Fed/ROSO films and promotional products. In the long run this is where the combined entities bring the most value. The company also offers a produce tracking software, StrataTrace that allows consumers to identify where food originates and determine any recalls.
