Cypress MultiGraphics was originally founded in 1970 specializing in production of durable labels. Brad Weber, President & CEO, acquired the company in 2006. The company grew to two locations in Tinley Park, Illinois, and Brooklyn Center, Minnesota and has been a constant leader in the industrial label market working with many premier brands. As one of the leading durable label manufacturers in North America, Cypress MultiGraphics serves the Lawn & Garden, HVAC, Power Tools, Medical Equipment, and Appliances industries. The company offers state of the art screen and digital printing of durable nameplates and labels, including doming, as well as graphic overlays and faceplates, short-run hot stamp capabilities and flexographic and digital printing. Both facilities are ISO 9001-2015 registered, provide products that are UL and CSA approved, and are a 3M Select Converter.
“Bob Contaldo initially represented the seller when we bought the business 15 years ago,” said Weber. “We have been associated with XLCS with both buying and selling companies ever since. Their in-depth label industry experience, exceptional marketing materials, and highly refined process resulted in a very competitive buying climate. XLCS found a first-class buyer and put my business and employees in good hands. We leaned on the entire XLCS staff throughout the transaction and each team member performed their role at a highly professional, knowledgeable level. They are great people to work with.”
