Joint Press Release: Metalcraft Acquires UID Label Division of A2B Tracking to Expand Market Presence and Enhance Service Offering

MASON CITY, IA (December 19th, 2023) - Metalcraft, a leader in the identification products industry, and A2B Tracking, a provider of software solutions for tracking and managing critical assets and inventory, announced today the successful acquisition of the A2B Tracking UID Labels and Plates division by Metalcraft. The strategic move is designed to strengthen Metalcraft's position in the market and broaden its portfolio of services. Furthermore, this relationship will allow A2B Tracking to increase their focus on their cloud-based Asset Management software solutions.

As of January 2, 2024, Metalcraft will take over the operations, assets and responsibilities associated with A2B Tracking's UID label and plate production. This acquisition aligns with Metalcraft's commitment to innovation and growth. The combined expertise and resources of both organizations will create a more robust and comprehensive suite of solutions for their customers.

"We are thrilled to add the IUID Label Production Division of A2B Tracking to the Metalcraft family. We've partnered with A2B for years and have always been impressed with how they run their operations. They are a top-notch organization which is why this is such a great fit for both companies," said Metalcraft CEO Kyle Bermel.

Metalcraft has been in the UID business for over a decade, but, as Bermel states, this acquisition increases that portion of the business. He also anticipates a smooth acquisition process with virtually no disruption to business for our customers. "This acquisition not only expands our footprint in the military industry, but it also adds valuable expertise and resources to our organization," said Metalcraft CEO Kyle Bermel. "We are committed to ensuring a seamless transition for employees, customers and other stakeholders."

A2B Tracking has been offering software and services to the UID Industry since 2004. Their industry-leading software UC! Web, which Metalcraft uses to manage their UID operations, provides a cloud-based Asset Management solution. Among many other benefits, it helps users to meet their IUID Compliance obligations including electronic reporting to the PIEE, WAWF and IUID Registry.

"The A2B Tracking IUID Label and Plate Division has been an important service that we have offered our customers. Over the past two decades, our label team has built an excellent reputation by exceeding expectations and paying  attention to the details. Metalcraft is the perfect partner to take over our Label division. A2B Tracking and Metalcraft have worked together for years and we have very confidence that their customer service and IUID Label expertise will provide the highest level of support available," said A2B Tracking's Founder and CEO, Peter Collins.

Embarking on this journey, both companies are dedicated to delivering outstanding products/services, maintaining the highest standards of quality and fostering a culture of collaboration and excellence.
