Seamus Lafferty, president of Accraply, Inc., has announced the acquisition of Harland Machine Systems, LTD of Manchester, England. Harland specializes in the design and manufacture of a comprehensive range of high quality, reliable, efficient and cost-effective self-adhesive (pressure-sensitive) labeling machinery.
“The acquisition of Harland complements our existing self-adhesive business with robust technology, a global sales and service network, and a dedicated team that brings experience, passion and a determination to deliver exceptional performance for our customers,” Lafferty stated. “I am proud to welcome Harland to the Accraply and Barry-Wehmiller family, and I look forward to the combined knowledge and experience of our teams making an immediate and positive impact in the market.”
With the Harland acquisition, privately-held Barry-Wehmiller, headquartered in St. Louis, MO (USA), grows to 84 acquisitions. Since 1987, Barry-Wehmiller has experienced growth and anticipates revenues will surpass $2.4 billion in 2016.
