Starport Acquires Nashua’s RFID Division

Starport Technologies is excited to announce the acquisition of Nashua labels RFID division (part of Cenveo NSYE:CVO) on September 24th, 2015.  Starport Technologies is based in Kansas City, Missouri and is a RFID centric tag and label provider.  A spin off of Package Service Company in 2006, Starport Technologies’ management has over 90 years of converting experience.

IMG_1659As part of the acquisition, Starport increased its number of RFID converting platforms by acquiring an Omega 16” RFID converting platform. This unique converting platform was designed by, and manufactured by, ABGraphics Intl.  The converting platform houses a multitude of unwind and rewind stations. The platform is equipped with dual-axis servo driven rotary die cutting stations. The servo controlled rotary die stations allow for precise registration to RFID inlay placement and printed graphics. The array of rewind and unwind stations allow for the introduction of varying webs of face materials and unique transfers adhesives. Another capability of the platform is the ability to convert (dry) non-pressure sensitive inlays into individually die cut (wet) pressure sensitive inlays. This conversion of dry to wet inlays can be accomplished with or without a paper or film face.

Starport Technologies’ General Partner Jeff Nedblake states, “This acquisition is a direct result of our 80% average annual growth over the past four years and the overall growth of RFID adoption across the globe.  Starport’s RFID-centric approach has positioned us to become the go-to converter for challenging and high volume projects. We welcome Nashua’s customer base to our group and look forward to servicing their needs.  We are certain they will be very pleased with our delivery times and competitive pricing.”

Starport Technologies now has the capacity to produce over 4 million RFID enabled pressure sensitive labels per day.  Starport Technologies is an approved converter of the top three inlay manufacturers; Avery Dennison, Alien Technology, and Smartrac.  With millions of labels stocked for all types of printers, Starport Technologies can help your company investigate, evaluate and acquire competitively priced RFID tags for any application.
