Our History

In 1967, Chester Sykes created Label Makers, Inc. in the back of a Chicago butcher shop. Label Makers, Inc. focused on production of high-end labels for two major clients. Soon after, Chester recognized the growth of heat seal and foil die cut lidding in Europe. Seeing a huge domestic opportunity for the technology, he immediately adapted to the changing marketplace. The company began to quickly grow beyond our roots in Franklin Park, Illinois, but Chester’s vision of "creating a company where people could be heard" remains.
In 1985, Chester’s daughter, Virginia (Jean) Moran took over the leadership of the company as CEO. Jean worked to transition Label Makers, Inc. into LMI Packaging Solutions, a certified woman owned and operated business. Over the course of its history, LMI has grown significantly by weathering challenges and changes in both the economy and packaging marketplace. The company's success has been attributed to the core sales and marketing approach that features deep and long-lasting customer relationships. The leadership of LMI Packaging Solutions recognized the need to expand production in order to support our growth. In 1991, LMI purchased a second facility located in Lakeland, Florida to expand operations and support the business growth.
In 1994, LMI Packaging Solutions opened our current office and factory in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin. This location provided a key opportunity to consolidate our Franklin Park and Lakeland production capabilities in one location that allowed for new machinery greater distribution accessibility, increasing our efficiencies and adding value for our customers. 
As a leader in the flexible packaging industry, LMI is focused on partnering with food and beverage manufacturers that are looking for innovative lidding solutions. With a wide range of market, material and product performance expertise, we are more than just lidding professionals. Our goal is to be your most trusted supplier and partner.
