MONTREAL, October 11, 2022 — Labelink, the largest Canadian privately owned manufacturer of printing solutions for packaging, has acquired Pro Label in Appleton, WI. Pro Label is a privately owned business with 30 years of experience in creating high quality labels and specialty prints.

The acquisition strengthens Labelink’s vision of developing a network of printing hubs in key strategic regions. “Pro Label print capabilities and product offering will be valued by our growing customer base across North America,” said Stéphen Bouchard, President of Labelink and CEO of Pro Label. “As equally important, Pro Label is a perfect fit with Labelink customer-centric culture: we look forward to working with such an accomplished team of employees who foster longstanding client relationships.”

Since its debut in 1992 printing window and door labels, Pro Label has expanded into many specialty applications and a workforce of 120 people. “There’s a natural alignment here as our business culture and values are very similar,” declared Brian Hermann, former owner, and newly appointed President of Pro Label. Labelink’s desire to build on our success was another key factor in our decision to sell. We have worked hard to create best-in-class products and services and I would like to thank our remarkable employees for their commitment and excellence. We are thrilled to join the Labelink family to reach the next level.”

Pro Label will maintain its client portfolio and operate as Pro Label LLC — A division of Labelink. The current leadership team remains in place to ensure business continuity and market guidance.
