Fortis Solutions Group has acquired Total Label USA, augmenting the group’s product portfolio and extending its geographic reach into the country’s Pacific Northwest region.
Founded in 2004 by Janet Farris and Chris Farris, Total Label manufactures complex pressure-sensitive, extended content and booklet labels utilising flexographic, letterpress, digital and hybrid printing technologies. The company primarily serves the agriculture, health and beauty, nutraceutical, home goods, and food and beverage end-use markets.
Moreover, with locations in Whitefish, Montana and Memphis, Tennessee, Total Label expands Fortis’ presence in the Pacific Northwest.
Fortis President and CEO John O. Wynne, Jr. commented, ‘Total Label is known throughout the industry for its highly engineered, value-added products with quick turnaround times. The acquisition of Total Label will further augment our product portfolio while expanding our geographic reach to the Pacific Northwest. I’m looking forward to working alongside Janet Farris and Chris Farris and the Total team to continue its growth trajectory.’
Employing over 900 employees across fourteen sites, Fortis intends to continue its pursuit of attractive acquisitions to further the breadth of product offerings and locations, from which it can serve customers.
Janet and Chris Farris will remain in leadership roles with the company. Ms Farris said, ‘As a family-owned business we have always been very purposeful in how we have built the culture and strategy of Total Label. A partnership with Fortis allows us to continue to grow, provide excellent products, and foster a positive environment for our employees.’
Mr Farris added, ‘Speed, quality, innovation. That is the motto we’ve employed at Total Label over the past 15 years, and it was the same way when we helped our father run his business. We chose to combine forces with Fortis because they will allow us to continue to innovate for our customers well into the future.’
