How CCL Industries quietly became the world’s largest label-maker
When it comes to CCL’s success, Stephen MacLeod, an analyst with BMO Capital Markets, points to a series of factors. “You have to take into account the company’s competitive position in the global label-making market, and its strong customer relations, [and] diverse user market,” he says. CCL’s operations span six continents and include 119 facilities, in large part the result of a series of smart acquisitions. The company’s strategy is to make small, tuck-in purchases that provide “exposure to a unique technology or a unique customer set,” notes MacLeod. But CCL has also picked up companies that operate somewhat outside its traditional line of business.
