Garment hanger, packaging, labels and RFID ticketing business Mainetti Group is bolstering its creative branding and packaging solutions in the US with the acquisition of The Star Group.
Located in Lodi, New Jersey, The Star Group supplies leading apparel retailers and brands with labels, tags, specialty trim and other personalised products. It has also capitalised on the growth of e-commerce by partnering with online retailers to brand their shipping packages.
Mainetti will be integrating The Star Group with its wholly owned subsidiary RECA Group, which also offers labels, hangtags and packaging for many of the world’s best-known luxury fashion firms. The new unit will operate as ‘Star-Reca, A Mainetti Company.’
“The addition of The Star Group’s professional talent and extensive portfolio of branding solutions deepens Mainetti’s ability to serve global retail brands with the most creative and unique products for their needs,” says Paul Withers, group global head of packaging at Mainetti.
“We understand the competitive demands of the retail and apparel industry, and we are confident we can help today’s brands effectively engage with their customers in a way no other company can.”
The Star Group also offers environmentally-friendly labelling and packaging products, as well as organic and recycled alternatives to traditional packaging.
