Blue Label Digital Printing, a label printing company specializing in custom label manufacturing, plans on a $1-million expansion of its facility in Lancaster, Ohio.
According to Columbus 2020, Blue Label Digital Printing reached capacity at its existing location in Lancaster and requires additional space for equipment to meet business and industry demands.
The 20,000-square-foot expansion will allow the company to continue its rapid growth, providing custom packaging to the craft brewing industry. The investment will be used to expand the existing building, update the on-site infrastructure as well as purchase new machinery and equipment.
“The Columbus Region has been integral to our company’s success and history and we’re excited to grow our footprint there,” said Blue Label Digital Printing President Andrew Boyd. “The local talent and available business resources made our expansion in Lancaster an easy choice.”
Blue Label Digital Printing has been a part of the Lancaster manufacturing community since 1957, originally as One Write Company, a producer of envelopes and forms, economic development officials said. The company’s Blue Label division focuses on the production of custom packaging for the food and beverage industries. Its One Write division continues to provide envelopes for churches and other non-profit institutions.
“Blue Label Digital Printing is a core Lancaster company, and we’re thrilled it’s expanding and creating new jobs,” said Lancaster Director of Economic Development Mike Pettit. “Lancaster offers the strong manufacturing capabilities and highly skilled workforce needed to help this company grow.”
“Blue Label Digital Printing’s expansion in the City of Lancaster will create new jobs and enable the company to fulfill growing customer demand on the West Coast and beyond,” said JobsOhio Managing Director for Advanced Manufacturing Glenn Richardson. “This investment speaks to the company’s confidence in attracting high-quality talent from Fairfield County to support its growth in North American and international markets.”
