3 Sigma opens the doors to its facility in Covington, OH and begins offering pressure sensitive diaper sealing tapes and label stock. At the time, the label stock was able to be converted into price marking labels.Fun fact: This was before barcodes! Every item in the store needed a price marking label.
Operations expanded to include manufacturing of pressure sensitive masking and strapping tapes for construction and home use.
Up until 1989, 3 Sigma only used hot melt coaters. As the business continued to expand, so did the need for new technology. In order to better serve customers, 3 Sigma began using the emulsion coating assets for pressure sensitive label stock.
A new facility was built in Troy, OH. The new space was used to accommodate the company’s growth in staff, technology and hot melt and emulsion coaters.
3 Sigma acquired solvent coaters and doubled the size of the building to make room for the new coaters.
Purchased 80” emulsion coater.
3 Sigma partners with Neenah Performance Materials and their Neenah DISPERSA™ product line. This partnership will bring added value to our already strong line of Water Dissolvable products.
3 Sigma partners with Global Graphic Resources to further expand into the Graphic and Wide Format Market in North America. Together, we bring over 100 years of combined experience in the pressure sensitive films and media market. This partnership will allow us to meet the needs of even the most challenging applications.
3 Sigma is currently preparing space and mechanicals for the installation of new tape slitting equipment. A sheeter – which will allow for converting rolls to sheets – is being added to the equipment mix in mid-November. This will allow for 3 Sigma to control more processes in-house, bringing customers greater efficiency and faster lead times.
