US – Fortis Solutions Group, a portfolio company of private equity firm Main Post Partners, is expanding its own portfolio of packaging solutions through the acquisition of Kala Packaging.
Based in Orem, Utah, Kala Packaging is a supplier of pressure-sensitive labels and flexible packaging, serving the food and beverage, nutraceutical, and health and beauty markets.
The company’s offerings include anti-counterfeit and security solutions, food-safe flexible packaging such as pouches, and variable content printing.
“With its fleet of digital presses and top-tier flexographic printing technology, the Kala team have established a national presence in the quick turn labels and flexible packaging markets,” said Fortis president and CEO, John Wynne, Jr.
Wynne noted that his company was fortunate to join forces with such an outstanding team and are excited to further the value-added offerings we provide.
Kala president and CEO, Maui Chai, added: “While technology has always been an important characteristic of our ethos, supporting our customers as a vital extension of their operation is a foundational principle at Kala.
“Fortis understands the importance of these relationships and will persist in the continual removal of industry barriers that our customers have enjoyed with Kala over the past 18 years.”
Packaging solutions provider Fortis says that it plans to continue to pursue acquisitions that will expand its product offerings and add new locations from which it can serve its customer base.
Last year, the Virginia based company acquired Label Technology Inc, a California based flexible packaging, stand-up pouches, and pressure sensitive labels.
Label Technology serves a wide range of industries including the food, natural products, nutraceutical, cosmetic and health and beauty end markets.
The acquisition helped Fortis create a true national footprint for our organization while broadening its product offerings across multiple vertical markets.
