Epicomm Seeks Buyer for Growing Custom Label Converter in the Northeast
Owner retains Epicomm to find partner who will provide resources to support
this successful company’s continuing growth strategies.
Alexandria, Va. (June 8, 2016) ― Epicomm, the Association for Leaders in Print, Mail, Fulfillment, and Marketing Services, seeks a buyer for a successful label converter, a custom manufacturer of pressure-sensitive labels and unsupportive films. The company, which has one main production facility that is located in the northeast United States, offers innovative label and packaging solutions in a wide range of materials, shapes, and sizes for decorating or packaging customers’ products.
“Over the last three years, the company has invested significantly in equipment and prepress technology, thereby positioning itself to offer gravure printing quality at flexographic prices,” says Tom Cobery, Epicomm Vice President and a member of its Business Advisory Group, which was retained by the company’s sole shareholder to find a buyer. The shareholder seeks to partner with a new owner who will provide the resources to support the company’s growth plans.
“The company’s sales in 2015 have increased as a result of the addition of a number of new customers and growth with existing customers,” Cobery continues. “It is a qualified vendor for a number of large national food companies, well positioned to compete in the growing flexible packaging market, and offers an excellent opportunity for a strategic or financial buyer who is looking for new markets or seeks to expand this market segment on a national basis.”
The company serves a broad range of markets, including food, personal care, high-tech, and medical packaging, and offers a variety of services that combine its strengths in attention to detail, high quality, and outstanding customer service. Its sales have grown steadily since 2012, reaching some $9 million last year—an increase of nearly $1.9 million, or nearly 27%, over the last four years. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA has grown steadily from 14% in 2012 to 22% in 2015.
