Scott Lucas – President & CEO
Thirty years ago, a young man from the Milwaukee area made a decision to follow his instincts to become an entrepreneur. As an early adopter of new technologies, he set out to redefine what a durable label converter should be. Instead of targeting mainstream identification applications, Scott opted to take on the challenges of custom applications, never-before seen products, and new materials. Scott helped pioneer many of the durable label solutions that exist today. He created an organization that’s driven by relationships and the values of our customers. As a result, we think of ourselves differently because we were founded on a different set of principles.
