ACOA supporting expansion of Amherst label company


The Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) is helping Access Labels in Amherst expand its operations.

ACOA says it is providing a repayable contribution of $835,000 to the company to buy specialized equipment to make pressure sensitive labels and to convert a warehouse into a digital printing facility.

Access Labels employs 43 people and is the largest label printing company in Atlantic Canada.

The funding, announced Thursday, comes through the ACOA's Regional Economic Growth through Innovation Program.
