LABELPAC and LABEL PRESS Team Up for Strategic Partnership
WINDSOR, ONTARIO - LABELPAC is heading into March with renewed gusto, announcing an international expansion plan, a new partnership with Australia-based Label Press, and a revamped strategy to develop trust and relationships with growers around the world via its MOTOHEAD™ labeling system product.
LABELPAC offers its partners and customers 30 years of produce labeling experience. This experience coupled with its MOTOHEAD Print and Apply on-demand PLU labeling systems differentiates the company, which is one reason Label Press chose LABELPAC as its new strategic partner.
“At LABELPAC, we are always seeking strategic partners that place customer values first and offer local support and service. With nearly 40 years, Label Press has proven their reputation working with packing houses in Australia to provide labeling solutions while building long-lasting relationships,” said Sam Sleiman, President and Owner of LABELPAC. “We look forward to working with and supporting Label Press, which will bring positive changes and options to the Australian and New Zealand markets. Our systems are offered in a multitude of configurations to accommodate [customers’] labeling requirements.”
According to a press release, MOTOHEAD is the only labeler of its kind thanks to its ability to print on both high-quality, thin eco-friendly biodegradable glossy paper and polyethylene labels. In addition, the product touts the advantage of tracing back to the root of contamination via LABELPAC’s enhanced Item Level Traceability. It also helps customers save on label inventory because of the labeling system’s use of a multitude of generic PLU labels without the need to stock large label inventory.
“Since 1980, Label Press has provided quality printed labels and tags as well as innovative packing house solutions to the Australasian fresh produce industry. Along with LABELPAC’s expertise in fruit labeling technology and their internationally patent-pending and innovative Produce Lookup (PLU) labeling systems, Label Press can now offer unique options to PLU labeling requirements for the Australasian and New Zealand market,” said Cecil Hornbuckle, Director of Label Press. “Label Press has identified the MOTOHEAD system as proven technology that will facilitate smoother operations for Australasian growers and packing houses.”
On top of this new partnership, LABELPAC also has its eyes on expanding internationally.
“Recently, we added Peru, Germany, Australia/New Zealand, and Chile to the international team of distributors and label manufacturers,” continued Sleiman.
