Main Post Partners’ portfolio firm Fortis Solutions Group has acquired Premier Georgia Printing and Labels and Austin Label Company.
Headquartered in Virginia Beach, Virginia, Fortis Solutions Group offers printing, packaging, and labeling solutions.
Situated in Flowery Branch, Georgia, Premier is a full-service labels, packaging, folding carton, offset and flat sheet printing company primarily serving customers throughout the Southeast in the food end-market.
Located in Austin, Texas, Austin Label provides custom pressure-sensitive labels using flexographic and digital printing technologies to customers in the wine, spirits and food end-markets in the US.
Fortis Solutions Group president and CEO John Wynne said: “The acquisitions of Premier and Austin fully support our growth strategy of product, end-market and geographic diversification.
“We look forward to extending our new folding carton capabilities across the Fortis footprint and growing our presence in Texas and the food, wine and spirits end-markets. We welcome the Premier and Austin employees to the Fortis organization.”
Fortis, which employs more than 440 employees across ten sites, said it plans to continue its pursuit of attractive acquisitions to further the breadth of product offerings and locations which can serve its customer base.
Fortis’ product offerings, which use the company’s flexographic and digital printing capabilities, include pressure sensitive and shrink sleeve labels, extended booklet printing, folding cartons, variable data printing, multi-ply coupon printing and flexible packaging printing.
The company also has manufacturing and sales offices in Austin, Texas, Ellington, Connecticut, Flowery Branch, Georgia, Fort Worth, Texas, High Point, North Carolina, Kansas City, Missouri, Memphis, Tennessee, West Chester, Ohio and Wixom, Michigan.
In July 2018, Fortis Solutions Group acquired Lewis Label Products, located in Fort Worth, Texas.
Founded in 1964, Lewis Label Products is a custom manufacturer of pressure sensitive labels, shrink sleeves and flexible packaging products.
The company provides high-quality distinctive labeling and packaging solutions to its customers across the US.
Lewis Label increases Fortis’ presence in the food and beverage end markets while also expanding into the nutraceutical sector.
The purchase strengthens Fortis’ product offerings to include shrink sleeves and enable it to expand its flexible packaging and pressure sensitive labeling capabilities.
