Inland, a supplier of advanced packaging and labeling technology based in La Crosse, WI, announced the completion of the acquisition of Monet Graphics (Downingtown, PA). The acquisition, which is the first of its kind for Inland, comes after a recent local expansion and rebrand for Inland.
"It is our goal to continue to grow this company. Finding the right partners to join the Inland family is one component of our strategy," explained Mark Glendenning, CEO & owner of Inland. "Not only did we see the level of experience and technical expertise that we were looking for, Monet's culture is one that fits well with what we've built at Inland."
Monet Graphics, a flexographic printer of primary labels and coupons, was founded in 1995. It employs 23 people at its 30,000-square-foot facility in Downingtown.
Inland plans on capitalizing on the newly acquired company by maintaining and growing its existing business, with future plans to include new business. The plant will serve as an addition to its three facilities in La Crosse, with the corporate office remaining in its current location.
A third-generation, family-owned company, Inland works collaboratively with brand owners and industry partners to advance innovative, best-in-class solutions for food, beverage and consumer product packaging. Inland has experienced an "impressive 70-year transformation from local supplier to global partner," said the company, which currently employs more than 300 people at three facilities in La Crosse.
