“I am proud to welcome Jason Grossman and his employees to our team,” said Bob Simko, President and CEO of Resource Label. “We will continue to support the business that Jason has successfully built over the last twenty years.”
According to Emilio Pedroni, Managing Director at First Atlantic Capital, Paragon, being located in the heart of the California wine region, will be a “tremendous addition to Resource Label”.”
Acquisition of Ingenious Packaging

Ingenious is fully equipped with flexo, digital and offset printing capabilities and the ancillary finishing assets to offer a full breadth of pressure sensitive, cut and stack and in-mould labels as well as shrink sleeves and banding products.
Resouce Label ordered a new 17″ (431.8”) wide Mark Andy P7 flexo press for the facility in Toronto. This order is, according Bob Simko, President and CEO of Resource Label, “an initial sign of the commitment to Ingenious’ employees, customers and capital expansion strategy”. According to him Resouce Label intends to provide the support to meet both the current and future growth needs of Ingenious’ customers throughout North America.
