ID Label Celebrates 25 Years

ID Label Inc. is celebrating 25 years in business. Since its founding in 1994, the company has grown from a one-person start-up operation to become the industry’s leading manufacturer and installer of barcode labels and signs.

Household names like Amazon, Wal-Mart, Best Buy and Starbucks are among thousands of global companies that ID Label works with today.

“In 1994 I couldn’t imagine we’d be as big as we are today,” said Neil Johnston, ID Label’s founder, CEO and president. “Did I hope for it? Yes. But in all honesty, I didn’t know if I had it in me to run a multimillion-dollar company with several locations across the country.”

ID Label Converts Waste Into Energy

By its very nature, the label manufacturing process can produce a fair amount of waste, from set-up material and edge trim to matrix and container waste. Unfortunately, it’s estimated that 85 percent of label industry-specific waste is sent to landfills each year.

“We take our responsibility to the environment very seriously,” said Neil Johnston, ID Label’s president and CEO. “I’m proud to say that we’re committed to sending less than one percent of our waste to landfills.”
