Resource Label Group, a full-service provider of pressure sensitive label, shrink sleeve and RFID/NFC technology for the packaging industry, announced the acquisition of Best Label Company, broadening its west coast presence and leading position in the label and packaging industry.
Best Label represents the fourth acquisition in recent months for Resource Label, a portfolio company of First Atlantic Capital, a New York-based private investment firm, and TPG Growth, the middle market and growth equity investment platform of TPG.
Mike Apperson, president and chief executive officer of Resource Label Group, stated, “I am honored that Best Label has joined the Resource Label Group team. Best Label brings a group of talented individuals, a high level of product quality and innovative packaging solutions to our organization. I look forward to working closely with the team to continue to serve our growing customer base across North America.”
Located in California, Best Label is one of the largest label manufacturers on the west coast and provides labeling solutions across a variety of segments including the food, beverage, health and beauty, pharmaceutical, automotive, agricultural and chemical industries. It offers a diverse inventory of letterpress, flexographic and digital printing and enhanced finishing assets to offer a full breadth of pressure sensitive, extended content and promotional label solutions.
Ernie Wong, former chief executive officer of Best Label stated “We are extremely excited to join Resource Label Group. Resource Label shares our commitment to ensuring the long-term success of our customers and valued employees. This partnership is key to supporting our vision and the growth plans for the business.”
Roberto Buaron, chairman and CEO First Atlantic Capital added, “Best Label has an outstanding group of dedicated employees, diverse client base, and is a valued addition to Resource Label Group. We are pleased to continue to support Resource Label’s expansion, which includes fourteen acquisitions since our initial investment in 2011.”

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
