Signode Canada and International Bar Coding Form Strategic Partnership

Signode Canada and International Bar Coding form partnership to expand labeling and bar coding solutions for wood products and building materials sector.

Signode Canada, a division of Signode Packaging Group Canada ULC and International Bar Coding (IBC) formed a strategic partnership that enhances Signode’s position in wood products printing and bar coding while also expanding IBC’s reach into North American wood products mills.

The partnership is expected to increase Signode’s position in being a one vendor solution, while growing their market share in wood products using IBC’s label applicators and printer applicators.

“As the leader in innovation for the Wood Products Industry it was imperative we partnered with a company that could provide reliable and innovative solutions that our customers have come to expect from Signode. The partnership with IBC provides us with a further enhancement to our existing and growing printing business and gives us what we feel is the best solutions in the industry,” says Robin Deering, director of business development, Signode Canada.

“IBC was attracted to the partnership because of Signode’s long standing reputation for quality products, customer service, and customer relationships. These are all critical focuses of IBC since it was established 23 years ago. The phrase, ‘boots on the ground,’ is the approach that the partnership will deploy to deliver customer sales support and service for its entire line of IBC printer applicators, label applicators, printers, data collection solutions, labels, tags, and ribbons throughout North and South America,” says Chris Pedersen, president, IBC.
