The History of Lean Labeling at Labeltronix

Labeltronix Lean Labeling

After more than 28 years in the labeling business, we’ve learned a lot along the way. We’re passionate about helping our customers with their labeling needs, in fact we asked our customers nearly 20 years ago what their biggest labeling challenges were, and what their ideal label company looked like.

What we learned was our customers needed significantly more flexibility and control. So, we created “Lean Labeling” and built our operation and manufacturing facility with the purpose of providing customers with more control and flexibility. 

What is Lean Labeling?

We have a saying at Labeltronix: “Lean Labeling in everything we do,” which means we incorporate our Lean Labeling mindset in every area from our account management approach, customer experience, pricing programs, and customer learning center to our state-of-the-art label printing and converting operation. 

Our goal with Lean Labeling is to provide premium craft labels on time and on budget for wine, craft beer, spirits, cannabis, and other premium product companies.
