Advised Imprint Plus on its sale to CCL Industries

CCL Industries acquired the entire share capital of Imprint Plus, a manufacturer of containers and packaging. CCL Industries acquired Imprint Plus for $25 million in April 2018.


Imprint engaged Capital West Partners (IMAP Canada) to explore a sale of the business as the founders were looking to retire.


Following a comprehensive transaction process, CCL Industries was selected to acquire the business, given their industry expertise, compelling valuation and ability to continue the company’s legacy. Imprint Plus is one of North America’s leading manufacturers of custom name badge systems, signage systems and related accessories.


CCL Industries, a multi‐national manufacturer of specialty packaging and pressure sensitive materials, has been making numerous add‐on acquisitions and Imprint Plus provided a strong addition to its product offering.
