United Label’s facility currently operates four conventional flexographic presses ranging in width from 7- to 10-in. and 3- to 8-station color capabilities, as part of a fully capable manufacturing facility with a wide variety of slitters, rewinders, finishing systems, and inspection systems. Over the next 18 months, Jet Label will be adding to this lineup with new machinery and, as needed, additional personnel. Jet Label’s Edmonton facility, which operates 24/7 across three shifts, uses two state-of-the-art HP Indigo Digital presses along with 12 traditional flexographic presses ranging in width from 6–20 in. and 3- to 10-station color capabilities.
Founded in 1998 and headquartered in its 54,000-sq-ft Edmonton facility, Jet Label manufactures labels and printed tape for a broad range of industries, including food & beverage and grocery stores, consumer packaged goods, pharmaceuticals, forestry, and industrial applications. In doing so, Jet Label produces a range of durable, reliably water- and weatherproof labels that stand up to the types of harsh conditions in which many of its customers operate. Jet Label also produces a variety of address labels, and supplies parking and boarding passes and baggage tags to Edmonton International Airport.
Acquiring United Label greatly expands one of Jet Label’s key customer sectors: mass-market retail. United Label’s client roster currently includes an impressive variety of retailers, wholesalers, and pharmacies, among them Costco, IGA, London Drugs and Safeway.
“Combining forces with our friends at United Label Company is a perfect fit for Jet Label strategically, bolstering our retail sector business segment while providing much-needed additional capacity to other branches of our customer portfolio,” says Darrell Friesen, president of Jet Label & Packaging. “Along with vp-Operations Rodney Froment and the entire team at Jet Label, I’m proud to welcome the staff at United Label Company into our family, and look forward to years of continued growth and success.”
