Bizerba thereby expands its service portfolio with technical expertise in the linerless technology with a particular focus on the food, retail and tire sector. The new company will operate under Bizerba Tekno Label Inc. in future.

“This partnership strengthens our position in the U.S. as the industry-leading provider of linerless, thermo-direct and quality labels”, said Frederic LaBrie, future President of the company. “We will particularly benefit from the know-how that this specialized company has in the industrial label-processing and coating sector.” The company has five employees and will be working with about 15 employees in a newly-equipped 2,400m² facility in Boucherville, Quebec.

Unlike conventional labels whose liner needs a lot of space on the label roll, linerless labels are provided with a special surface coating, and self wound like a roll of tape. Eliminating the liner means much more labels can be wound on a roll of a given diameter. Industry and retail customers thus benefit from less waste, a significant increase of the printable area per label roll and less roll change.

“The expansion of our US headquarters in Joppa/Maryland in 2015 has positioned us for the continuous strong growth experienced by all business segments in the U.S.”, said Andreas Wilhelm Kraut, Bizerba’s managing partner and CEO. “By continuing our expansion path in North America with this acquisition, we combine our leading position in the scale and industrial device sector with the technical expertise provided by Tekno Label. Therefore, users now have a one-stop shop for all devices and consumables.“
