Additional capital was provided by CapitalSource Finance, LLC and Hartford Investment Management. This transaction is the successful culmination of an initiative led by The Bigelow Company LLC to provide a value-maximizing liquidity event for the majority shareholder of RLG, while simultaneously providing ongoing management the opportunity to reinvest alongside smart capital to bolster management’s growth plan.

“After interviewing many of the leading middle market investment banks nationwide – I met one that had the characteristics I had been seeking. Bigelow has the fire power of Wall Street but the feel and compassion of Main Street.” Clayton D. Smith, President Resource LabelGroup, LLC
“Bigelow worked hard to uncover the aspects that supported what we intuitively knew – that RLG performed differently than other label printers. Who knew that such an investor even existed?” Darrell Stallcup, Founder Resource LabelGroup, LLC
