Lewis Label, located in Fort Worth, Texas, is a custom manufacturer of pressure-sensitive labels, shrink sleeves and flexible packaging products. Established in 1964, Lewis Label provides high quality labeling and packaging products to its customers across the US.

Fortis President and CEO, John O. Wynne, Jr., said: ‘We are extremely excited to acquire such a terrific company. Gib Lewis and his team have established themselves as one of the top converters in the southwest. Lewis Label increases our presence in the food and beverage end markets while also expanding Fortis into the nutraceutical sector. This acquisition bolsters our product offerings to include shrink sleeves and allows us to broaden our flexible packaging and pressure sensitive labeling capabilities. In addition, we are able to strengthen and grow our relationships with our valued customers by having a presence in Texas. We welcome the Lewis Label team to the Fortis organization.’

Lewis Label CEO, Gibson D. Lewis, stated: ‘Lewis Label Products looks forward to becoming an extension of Fortis Solutions Group. This opportunity will allow Lewis Label to reach a new and higher level for our customers.’
