The identification and labelling of products, and subsequently ensuring complete tracking & tracing of goods, is already of high relevance for many branches of industry, such as the food, automotive and pharma industries, and will continue to gain in importance over the coming years. In establishing the Identification Solutions division, Possehl, applying the buy-and-build principle, succeeded in positioning itself competitively in this global growth market through systematic acquisitions and has continuously expanded its market position.
Our eighth division within the Possehl Group comprises the two company groups Logopak Systeme and Novexx Solutions as well the companies Eidos and Nordvalls acquired in 2017. In 2019, Etipack, another renowned manufacturer of industrial labelling solutions based in Italy, joined the Possehl Group. The labelling business was expanded further by the majority acquisition of the UK-based company The Watermill Press Ltd. in 2020. In 2021, Lari Tryck, a Scandinavian family business, was added as a further company for the labeling sector, which has since been merged into Nordvalls. Further external growth, especially in high-quality consumables, is a focus of Possehl Identifications Solutions’ strategy for the future. With its sophisticated product portfolio, highly diversified know-how and extensive software competencies, the division offers a wide range of individual solutions in the fields of development, production and sales of logistically integrated labelling systems serving as an interface between production and logistics, as well as digital thermal transfer printers, self-adhesive labels and thermal transfer films.
Moreover, the division has outstanding competencies in the field of software solutions. In addition to its own firmware, it develops software packages for label designing and database connection. Most recently, the division’s know-how in this particular business segment was strengthened even further by the majority acquisition of datakamp System GmbH & Co. KG. Operating with 907 employees in 13 countries, the division achieves annual sales of around €200 million.
