Kamylon Capital Sells Portfolio Company to WS Packaging Group

WELLESLEY, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Boston based, Kamylon Capital, has sold all of its membership interests in wholly-owned Label World to WS Packaging Group Inc. Label World employs digital and flexographic printing technologies to manufacture custom labels and packaging solutions for end markets such as food, industrial, health and beauty, nutraceuticals, wine and specialty beverage. Kamylon acquired the assets of Label World in January 2006 and during the life of the investment completed a complimentary add-on acquisition, invested substantial managerial resources and capital to expand capabilities, and installed a world-class management system.

“The acquisition of Label World by the WS Packaging Group not only validates Kamylon’s original investment thesis but also demonstrates what an operationally focused managerial investing firm can accomplish,” commented Richard Spencer, former Chairman of Label World and Partner of Kamylon Capital. He went on to say, “I am proud of the many accomplishments at Label World. The team transformed the business to become an industry leader in lean manufacturing and digital printing, a pioneer of environmentally-friendly TLMI L.I.F.E certified label manufacturing, a many-times winner of PIA’s Best of the Best Workplace award and ultimately an industry profit leader amongst like-sized peers. I look forward to seeing what the team can now accomplish as part of the larger WS Packaging Group.”
