ProMach Acquires EPI Labelers to Continue Expansion of Labeling and Coding Business

Jan 27, 2016

Cincinnati, OH - ProMach, Inc., an industry-leading integrated packaging solutions company, announced today it has acquired EPI Labelers. The addition of EPI Labelers expands ProMach’s extensive labeling and coding product offering and complements existing capabilities in vertical form, fill, seal (VFFS) packaging equipment. ProMach completed the acquisition on January 28, 2016, and will continue to leverage the EPI brand and their current facility in New Freedom, Pennsylvania.

EPI Labelers is a dedicated manufacturer of high-quality labeling products for packaging and promotional needs. They are a trusted solution provider for many of the largest consumer snack food and bakery brands in the U.S., and their success is indicative of their market expertise. EPI has been developing standard and custom labeling solutions for more than 30 years and manufactures a wide range of tamp, blow-on, wipe-on, 2-panel, corner wrap, high-speed, and print and apply labeling solutions.

“We’re pleased to welcome the outstanding EPI Labelers team,” said Alan Shipman, ProMach’s Labeling & Coding Group President. “EPI strengthens our product offering in our labeling and coding business along with our existing ID Technology and Greydon brands, and provides our customers with the most comprehensive range of quality labeling and coding solutions.”

Instituting strong focus on customer needs has created a loyal customer base and a deep expertise in unique label machinery applications for EPI Labelers. In addition, ProMach’s integration with EPI will be particularly valuable to current customers needing additional products or service along the packaging line, including ProMach’s rapidly growing flexible packaging business.

The EPI Labelers team will join ProMach’s Labeling and Coding Group led by Shipman. Reporting to him will be Matt McLean, Vice President and General Manager.

“We’re excited about what EPI Labelers brings to ProMach and the opportunity to support both our current and future customers with new, innovative solutions,” said McLean. “Together, we have outstanding opportunities to expand our solutions in key markets and develop new products that complement ProMach’s existing lines.”
