Security Labels International, a leading manufacturer of world-class tamper evident security devices, is pleased to announce that it has today, 23rd April 2012, acquired Geoffrey Waldmeyer Associates Ltd, suppliers of plastic and metal C-TPAT security seals, asset labels and tamper evident bags.
This acquisition will add significantly to the Security Labels product portfolio, particularly its Label Lock ™ range of labels and tape.

“The acquisition of Geoffrey Waldmeyer Associates, an important player in our market, will enable us to build even further on our ability to meet customer expectations. The security label industry is constantly evolving and the level of R&D required to address the ongoing technical challenges calls for a scale of operation that this acquisition will help us to achieve.”
Hugo Gell, Sales Director, commented:
“This acquisition significantly adds to the portfolio of products we will offer to our global distributor and customer base, further enhancing the Label Lock ™ brand and its continued successful penetration of the security market.”
Geoff Waldmeyer added:
“I should like to thank our customers for the pleasant way in which we have conducted business over, in some cases, nearly 25 years. In Security Labels International we have found a company that will work to the highest standards to provide the level of service our customers are entitled to expect. Although I shall now retire, I remain available to the company to ensure the smoothest of transitions. I wish our customers and business associates every success in the years ahead.”
