Nordvalls Etikett AB took over Lexit’s label business as of 1 March. The newly organized company Lexit Labels AS will, under Nordvalls, work closely with Lexit Group in the future on all label deliveries – and the combined offer across labels and marking as described below will be the same as before.
ABOUT THE COMPANY
Lexit Group, established in 1993, has long operated in all the Scandinavian countries, but recently became Nordic after the acquisition of Informa in Finland. The company supplies integrated solutions, assets and products within two business areas: data capture & digitalisation and industrial coding & marking.
Lexit’s customers include leading organisations and brands in the food industry, transport, logistics and distribution, specialised trade and retail, as well as the public sector. We excel in combining software, labelling, hardware and service, adapting solutions to the industry and application area.
Lexit is currently one of Nordics´ leading groups and total supplier of data capture, RFID, POS/retail, industrial coding and marking and software solutions – both modular solutions and integrated software for complicated system solutions. The subsidiary Idnet, which operates under its own brand based in Sweden, also has deep expertise in digitizing processes for stores and warehouses including WMS and electronic shelf fronts (ESL).
Altogether, the group has close to 240 employees and a turnover of approximately NOK 1 billion.
Number of employees
Number of offices
Everything started back in 1993 with the dream of selling label printers, labels, handheld terminals and barcode scanners – in a yellow house with an apple orchard in Kløfta, Norway. At the time, the company was called Strekkodesystemer AS. Turnover in the first year was NOK 3.9 million, rising to NOK 8.9 million the following year (1994). As turnover increased, the product range and the number of employees both continued to grow steadily in the years that followed.
In 2001, LexIT was founded as a separate company within the Strekkodesystemer Group, which previously consisted of Strekkodesystemer Maskin AS and Strekkodesystemer Etikett AS. The range of products was further expanded to include POS and retail products. The group changed its name to Lexit Group AS.
To handle the demand for products and solutions in central Norway, the company needed a branch in this area, so a new regional office was opened in Trondheim in 2002.
2004 / 2008
To complete the product range, Lexit Group Sweden AB was founded in Frölunda outside Gothenburg in 2004 and with that, the company’s own label printing company was born. It didn’t take long before Lexit Group Sweden needed more space and larger premises, and by 2008 a new building was ready in Mölnlycke, Gothenburg, designed entirely according to the company’s specifications. The new premises were quickly filled with new printing presses and more staff to cope with the growing demand for labels.
2009 / 2012
The group’s Scandinavian presence was firmly established when Lexit Group Denmark ApS saw the light of day in 2009 with offices in Allerød/Copenhagen. In 2012, a new regional office was also established in Vejle, in southern Denmark.
The high demand for labels in Norway and Sweden made it necessary to have more printing presses and more storage space in Mölnlycke / Gothenburg, so plans for an extension began. This resulted in doubling the production area, and the new building was completed in 2017.
Lexit is currently one of Scandinavia’s leading groups and total supplier of data capture, RFID, POS/retail, industrial coding and marking, labels and software solutions – both modular solutions and integrated software for complicated system solutions. The subsidiary Idnet, which operates under its own brand based in Sweden, also has deep expertise in digitizing processes for stores and warehouses including WMS and electronic shelf fronts (ESL). Altogether, the group has close to 250 employees and a turnover of approximately NOK 1 billion.
