US – US-based printed packaging company Fortis Solutions Group (Fortis) has completed the acquisition of Digital Dogma, a supplier of pressure-sensitive labels, shrink sleeves and flexible packaging.

Based in Santa Fe Springs, California, Digital Dogma serves companies in the food and beverage, wine and spirits, nutraceutical, health and beauty, and industrial end markets.

The company has manufacturing locations in Santa Fe Springs and Paso Robles, California.

On the other hand, Fortis, a portfolio company of funds managed by Harvest Partners, supplies pressure-sensitive and shrink-sleeve labels, flexible packaging printing, extended booklet printing, pouches, folding cartons and other solutions.

This acquisition will allow Fortis to extend its digital printing capabilities and footprints to California. The financial terms of the transaction have not been disclosed.

Fortis President and CEO John O Wynne Jr said: “As an early adopter of digital printing technology, Digital Dogma has always been at the forefront of innovation within our industry.

“With this acquisition, we are excited to extend our digital printing capabilities to California and offer coast-to-coast solutions for our customers.

“I am looking forward to working with Paul Mulcahey and the Digital Dogma team as we enhance our shrink sleeve, flexible packaging and pressure-sensitive offerings.”

Based in Virginia Beach, Virginia, the company has more than 1,300 employees across 22 manufacturing sites.

Digital Dogma owner Paul Mulcahey said: “We’re very impressed with Fortis Solutions Group’s approach to partnering with companies and joining them is a no-brainer for our continued growth and a bright future.”

The move comes shortly after Fortis announced the acquisition of Identi-Graphics, a manufacturer and printer of pressure-sensitive labels and flexible packaging products serving the snack, bakery, confectionary, cosmetic and chemical end markets in the US and Canada.

The company, based in Illinois, specializes in the printing of bar wrappers for the nutritional supplement industry in both heat and cold seal applications.

Earlier this year, Fortis also acquired Canadian flexographic and digital solution provider Profecta Labels.

Based in St-Hubert, Quebec, Profecta Labels manufactures flexographic and digital solutions of labels and flexible packaging printing.

The company serves industrial, pharmaceutical, cosmetics and food and beverage end-markets in North America.

Employing over 1,300 employees across 22 manufacturing sites, Fortis intends to continue its pursuit of attractive acquisitions to further the breadth of product offerings and locations which can better serve its customer base.
