Fortis Solutions Group acquires Total Label

Fortis Solutions Group has acquired Total Label to further expand its geographic reach

Fortis Solutions Group, a portfolio company of Main Post Partners, has acquired Total Label with locations in Whitefish, Montana, and Memphis, Tennessee, to further expand its geographic reach.

Founded in 2004 by Janet Farris and Chris Farris, Total Label provides pressure-sensitive, extended content and booklet labels utilizing flexographic, letterpress, digital and hybrid printing technologies. The company primarily serves the agriculture, health, beauty, nutraceutical, home goods, food, and beverage end-markets. Both founders will remain in leadership roles with the company.  

‘Total Label is known throughout the industry for its highly engineered, value-added products with quick turnaround times,’ commented John O. Wynne, Jr., CEO, and president of Fortis Solutions Group. ‘The acquisition of Total will further augment our product portfolio while expanding our geographic reach to the Pacific Northwest. I’m looking forward to working alongside Janet Farris and Chris Farris and the Total team to continue their growth trajectory.’

‘As a family-owned business, we have always been very purposeful in how we have built the culture and strategy of Total Label,’ said Janet Farris. ‘A partnership with Fortis allows us to continue to grow, provide excellent products, and foster a positive environment for our employees.’

Chris Farris added: ‘Speed. Quality. Innovation. That is the motto we’ve employed at Total Label over the past 15 years, and it was the same way when we helped our father run his business.  We chose to combine forces with Fortis because they will allow us to continue to innovate for our customers well into the future.’

Employing over 900 employees across fourteen sites, Fortis intends to continue its pursuit of attractive acquisitions to further the breadth of product offerings and locations which can serve its customer base.
