Based in Syracuse, NY, the new venture – SKYLARK™ – will bring TLC® (Thicker Label Closure) to the North American Moist Wipe Packaging Marketplace
Macaran Printed Products, Syracuse Label & Surround Printing and OPM Label and Packaging Group announced they have launched a joint venture. The new venture – SKYLARK™ – will market and manufacture TLC® (Thicker Label Closure) to the North American moist wipe packaging marketplace.
TLC® – a European and US patented re-seal label solution* – gives brand owners an opportunity to replace rigid flip-top closure systems with a semi-rigid label system. The TLC system optimizes product sustainability, maximizes package functionality, allows for better brand continuity, and lowers cost. It also improves product utility and delivers a better overall user experience to the consumer.
Chris Ellison, Joint Managing Director of OPM, said: “This is an exciting time for OPM and we are delighted to join forces with the newly merged Macaran and Syracuse teams to extend our business in the US for TLC; a ground breaking closure technology for the moist wipe market. We have a great relationship with the Macaran and Syracuse management team and are excited about what the future holds for Skylark as we invest for the future.”
“SKYLARK™ represents a significant milestone in the growth of both of our organizations,” said Tom Sargent, President of Macaran Printed Products. “OPM is an industry-leader with a proven track record of delivering cutting edge products. We are excited to partner with them to expand our product portfolio and bring TLC® to the North American marketplace,” he added.
Under the terms of the agreement, SKYLARK™ will be based in Syracuse, NY. A new 10-color, Nilpeter FA22UV flexo press with capabilities such as line and process color printing, outer surface and sub surface printing and specialty foil embellishments will be operational in Q4 2022.
SKYLARK™ kicked off the announcement by participating in the World of Wipes International Conference, June 27-30, 2022 at the Marriott Marquis, Chicago IL.
