In 1987, Paul Henkel and his wife Sue decided to start their own label manufacturing company, Electronic Imaging Materials, Inc. They dreamed of creating a business culture focused on sustainability and healthy, balanced growth. Determined to set a strong foundation of smart business practices without losing sight of the truly important things in life—people—Paul and Sue started EIM, filling label orders out of their garage in Keene, New Hampshire.
Today, Paul’s son Alex Henkel and his wife Heather Bell serve as President and Vice President and continue to focus on sustainable growth—promoting ongoing research and materials innovation, profit reinvestment, employee development and strong community connections—all pillars of our success in the field of label manufacturing. And Paul’s dream of a different kind of corporate culture? To date, we’ve never had a layoff.
Labels for Every Industry
Our labels have been shipped all over the world—114 countries and counting—and solve both mundane and so-called impossible labeling problems across multiple industries. Our standout markets are Industrial & Manufacturing, Warehouse and Laboratory environments, for which we’ve created labels that can thrive in the grimiest and harshest of situations, not to mention withstand liquid nitrogen conditions. Our continuous product development and ongoing communication with our customers has created multiple one-of-a-kind label solutions. From adhesive free tags that stick to jet engine cores to our one of a kind permanent-yet-always-removable Everpeel material, chances are that over the years we’ve developed a solution to your labeling conundrum.
The Ultimate Label Geeks
We’re all not-so-secretly Label Geeks! Our ever-growing roster of multi-talented employees is constantly dreaming up new ways to use, test and innovate with every label material we can get our hands on.
We’re beyond family-friendly—as a second-generation family business, we’ve created not only flextime positions for employees with family commitments, we’ve also launched our Babies at Work program, giving some of our awesome parent-label-experts the freedom to design their own schedule and bring their newborn to work with them.
We regularly bring in local college students for internships that often lead to full time positions upon graduation. We’re passionate about employee development and internal promotions—because we know the best team of people are the people who grow with you.
