Brook & Whittle further expands in West Coast with Digital Label Solutions acquisition
Brook and Whittle Holding Corp., a leading provider of sustainable pressure-sensitive and shrink-sleeve prime labels, has acquired Digital Label Solutions LLC. Based in Yorba Linda, CA, DLS specializes in short-run digital printing of custom and complex p-s and shrink-sleeve labels across a variety of end markets.
The acquisition furthers Brook and Whittle's presence on the US West Coast, following the firm's previously announced acquisitions of Label Impressions in June 2020 and Tri Print in October 2020. The DLS acquisition is the seventh add-on transaction for Brook & Whittle.
Similar to Brook & Whittle, DLS is focused on growth segments of the prime market, primarily digital pressure sensitive and shrink sleeve labels. DLS's operational footprint and production assets are highly compatible with Brook & Whittle's digital-printing strategy and further augment Brook & Whittle's ability to serve its West Coast customers. DLS was founded by Sandy Petersen, Joel Marks and Susie Dobyns in 2006. DLS has developed a strong reputation for unique expertise in short-run digital printing of complex prime labels. DLS recently received its sixth Eugene Singer Award for Management Excellence from TLMI, one of the North American narrow-web industry's most prestigious and highest honors. DLS' current employees will continue with Brook & Whittle.
