Allen-Bailey Tag & Label acquires N.J. firm

Livingston County-based Allen-Bailey Tag & Label Inc. has purchased 60-year-old New Jersey printer Wise Tag & Label.

Terms of the sale were not disclosed, but Allen-Bailey officials said the company will acquire the brand, production equipment and customer accounts in markets ranging from automotive to fire and shellfish.

“The Wise Tag name is widely known in the industry and stands for service and dependability,” Allen-Bailey president and CEO Eugene Tonucci said in a statement. “By merging Wise’s brand identity with our 106-year reputation for quality custom products, this acquisition ensures the brand loyalty that has fueled both businesses over the years will continue to propel our business forward in target markets.”

Wise Tag ceased operations at its 14,000-square-foot manufacturing facility this month.

Allen-Bailey was founded by Sam Allen and James Bailey in Dansville in 1911. In its early days the company manufactured wooden sticks used in plant nurseries. In 1913, Allen-Bailey was offered a tax incentive to move to Caledonia.

George Phelps purchased the company eight decades ago and the company remains in the Phelps family today. The company employs 100 people in Caledonia.
