Acquisition supports strategy to expand solutions across the print supply chain
San Jose, CA — Mountain View, California based Epic Labeling Solutions has been acquired by BR Printers of San Jose, California. Established in 1989 as Fernqvist Custom Labels, Epic’s long tenure is attributed to delivering label products and services at a fair price.
Epic provides the market with on-demand premium labels and label printing equipment and accessories. High-end flexographic and digital printing equipment deliver vibrant labels of up to seven colors and numerous shapes and sizes. Thermal, ready-to-print labels allow for data variability, ideal for ingredient lists, bar codes, nutritional information, and lot numbers.
With the ability to print on a variety of substrates, Epic also possesses extensive label enhancement capabilities including foil stamping, embossing, debossing, UV varnish and gloss laminating.
“Epic Labeling Solutions’ capabilities extend and complement BR’s existing print centric focus,” says Adam DeMaestri, President and CEO of BR Printers, “we look forward to integrating their products into our expanding catalog of print solutions.”
In addition to the manufacture of premium labels, Epic sources, installs, and services on-site label printing equipment and accessories to businesses with varying needs.
Thomas Vargas, President of Epic Labeling Solutions expressed, “The Epic staff is excited to join the ever-growing family of companies under the BR Printers imprint. We bring to BR a capability they don’t currently possess and are eager to join with them in providing a range of printed materials.”
DeMaestri states, “The addition of Epic Labeling Solutions provides our customers with a valuable and strategic resource within one business entity.”
