I’m excited to provide an update on the progress we are making since Barcodes West became a division of ID Label this past spring. Combining and integrating the two companies has been in the works for the past few months and I’m happy to report we are well down the path to completion.

We have integrated and cross-trained our sales and customer service teams, as well as finance, accounting, and other functions. We’re excited because the integration of our organizations means we can offer our customers a broader range of products, services, and solutions.

Key Advantages

Graphic3Founded in 1994, ID Label is the nation’s leading manufacturer of custom, variable-information barcode labels and tags used by thousands of organizations around the globe. Merging with Barcodes West gives the company a strong presence on the West Coast to pair with our facilities in the Midwest and eastern U.S., and adds a great team of experienced staff and a second high-quality manufacturing facility.

More importantly, the merger gives Barcodes West:

  • A larger manufacturing footprint with cutting-edge technology, including new high-speed digital UV inkjet presses for longer runs, greater throughput, and faster project turnaround
  • Greater collective sourcing of materials and suppliers for more competitive pricing options
  • Extensive experience in the warehousing and distribution industries, including nationwide installation services
  • A financial commitment to ensure the combined company continues to grow, invest in new technologies and products, and exceed our customers’ expectations

The integration of our organizations means we can offer our customers a broader range of products, services, and solutions.

What’s Next?

In the months ahead, you’ll begin to see fully integrated product offerings, unified branding under the ID Label name and a common website with a range of resources, product information, and e-commerce capabilities.

We’re excited to have brought two industry leaders together and look forward to providing you with unrivaled quality, service, and value. Thank you for being a loyal customer of Barcodes West.
