Wausau Coated Products, Wausau, Wisconsin, a manufacturer of pressure-sensitive products, label materials and custom coating technologies, has announced the acquisition of Pennsylvania-based Brandywine Drumlabels, LLC., effective Dec. 30, 2020.
Brandywine Drumlabels, a sales and distribution company of converted label materials, specializes in providing hazard communication labels and software to a wide array of customers in the chemical, pharmaceutical and petrochemical markets. Wausau Coated has been a technical and material supplier to Brandywine since the inception of the company.
Wausau Coated Products President Ben Reif said he is excited about the opportunities the acquisition presents to both companies. By joining forces, it will strengthen Wausau Coated’s ability to get application and technical knowledge to Brandywine’s customers.
Reif said Brandywine has the expertise and knowledge to assist Wausau Coated’s customers with implementation of full color print on-demand platforms. At the same time, the company can use its global footprint and sales and distribution channels to better serve Brandywine’s existing and prospective customers wherever they are in the world.
Brandywine Drumlabels president and CEO Chris Campbell stated that the company sees its new partnership through an exciting and optimistic lens. Although it will not affect the way Brandywine does business with its customers, it will enable the company to offer them a broader selection of inkjet label materials and allow its momentum and growth to continue by strengthening its ability to market its products.
Customers of both companies will continue to receive the same quality products and the high level of customer service they have come to expect from Wausau Coated and Brandywine.
