Fort Dearborn Acquires Renaissance Mark
ELK GROVE, Ill.—Fort Dearborn Company announced that it has acquired almost all of Renaissance Mark’s assets. The acquisition combines the two suppliers of cut-and-stack labels and expands Fort Dearborn’s scale and presence. Upon integration, all 10 of Fort Dearborn’s manufacturing facilities will operate as one company with unified systems, policies, and processes.
Fort Dearborn CEO Mike Anderson said, “Our customers are demanding greater variety, flexibility, geographic presence, and sophistication. Fort Dearborn is in an excellent position to meet those demands today and in the future.”
Renaissance Mark capabilities include cut-and-stack labels and specialty finishing options for leading consumer product companies in the food, beverage, personal care, and wine and spirits markets. Fort Dearborn supplies cut-and-stack, pressure sensitive, and full-body shrink sleeve labels across multiple printing technologies including digital, lithographic, flexographic, and rotogravure.
“The gain in scale will better allow Fort Dearborn to offer our customers unmatched value. As the industry continues to consolidate, we will have the opportunity to provide our full suite of label solutions across complementary markets and deliver the ‘one-stop-shop’ option our customers are seeking. Customers will also benefit from seamless migration across various label types and print technologies to best match their requirements,” added Anderson.
