All4Labels – Third largest label and package printing company formed

By merging the three companies Baumgarten-, Rako- and X-label Group, the owner families decided to form the All4Labels global packaging group. By joining forces, the group becomes the world’s third largest company of the label industry, providing solutions for more than 2000 customers at 26 production facilities worldwide. The complete name change of the companies will probably take 12 months.

The German Rako Group has an extensive professional know-how in digital production processes. Also headquartered in Germany, the X-label Group provides supply chain-oriented packing solutions with a focus on the industry of home & personal care. The Baumgarten Group has been one of the biggest printing houses in Latin America for more than 130 years. The companies made a turnover of over EUR 450 million altogether in 2016.

The headquarters of the new group are in Witzhave near Hamburg, Germany and remains an owner-managed company. Matthias Kurtz and Adrian Tippenhauer of Rako, Tim Fiedler and Jan Oberbeck of X-label and Fernando Gabel of Baumgarten are still the members of the executive board who have already strengthened the outstanding market positions of their companies.
