Identification, labelling and traceability of products and subsequently ensuring complete tracking of movements of goods is of high relevance for many branches of industry, such as the food- , automotive- and pharmaceutical industries, and will continue to gain in importance over the coming years. In establishing the new division “Identification Solutions”, Possehl, applying the buy-and-build principle, succeeded in positioning itself competitively in this global growth market through systematic acquisition.

Together with the two corporate groups Logopak Systeme and Novexx Solutions, the two companies Eidos and Nordvalls, which had been acquired in 2017, form the ninth division within the Possehl Group. In 2019, Etipack, another wellknown manufacturer of industrial identification solutions based in Italy, joined this division. Providing up-to-date products, highly diversified expertise and extensive software competencies, the group offers a wide range of individual solutions in the areas of development, production and sales of logistically integrated labelling systems serving as an interface between production and logistics, digital thermal-transfer printers, self-adhesive labels and thermal-transfer films.

The division has outstanding competence in the field of software solutions. In addition to its own firmware, it develops software packages for label designing and database connection. Most recently, through acquiring a majority share in datakamp System GmbH, the division further strengthened its competencies in this business field. Operating with some 840 employees in 13 countries, this division achieves annual sales of more than €160 million.
