The Kennedy Group, a provider of labeling, packaging, promotions, identification and tracking systems, has acquired Label Technique Southeast, a manufacturer of specialty and custom labels serving the food and produce market. The company produces primary and secondary labeling while leveraging digital printing with sequential numbering and 2D barcoding.
The Kennedy Group plans to leverage the production capabilities that Label Technique Southeast offers by introducing new products such as Roll Fed/ROSO films and promotional products. The company also offers a produce tracking software, StrataTrace, that allows consumers to identify where food originates and determine any recalls.
“The expansion continues our footprint in the Southeast while enhancing our customer base and increasing our capacity and capabilities,” explains Michael Kennedy, president of The Kennedy Group.
Over the coming months, the company will integrate and leverage the combined forces of four production plants, the RFID Customer Solutions Center, sales offices in Cleveland, Atlanta, Daytona, Orlando, and Pensacola, as well as affiliate offices. The company looks to grow business opportunities in the Southeast region, adding to its current base of over 3,000 clients in 40 states and 7 countries.
