Founded in 1978, K-Sun Corporation is a unique source for custom labeling, marking, signage and industrial identification solutions and has numerous exclusive electronic labeling machines, software and supplies. As a label printer supplier, the company is committed to: technology innovations and products that meet end-user needs; strong end-user service and technical support ; and continuing reseller sales support and education.
K-Sun Corporation began as a manufacturer of proprietary printing cartridges for electronic labeling machines, sold through independent resellers worldwide. During expansion efforts in 1987, K-Sun began a partnership with Brother International by distributing Brother® P-Touch labeling machines on an exclusive basis.
In 1994, the label maker company began to manufacture and market its own brand of proprietary labeling machines and consumable supplies. Its product lines have continued to grow, including new machines, specialty supplies and accessories. In 1997, the company occupied its new facility in Somerset, Wis. That year K-Sun acquired MaxiSoft® Inc., a safety and identification software development company based in Reno, Nev. Expansions included a wider range of specialized, exclusive supplies for the core labeling business as well as ink jet, laser and thermal transfer technology plus the addition of specific industrial identification software for safety signs, pipe marking, chemical labeling, right-to-know and other uses.
As a label printer company, K-Sun is committed to community endeavors and has donated numerous label printers, equipment and supplies to such organizations as the University of Minnesota Bee Lab and the Emergency Food Shelf Network of Minnesota. K-Sun has established programs for electronic waste recycling, and has also developed a series of safety labeling white papers, called “Labels Save Lives.”
Compliance Magazine has given MaxiSoft® MaxiSigns® safety sign making software the Commitment to Worker Safety Award for being the best identification software for creating safety and security signs. In 2009, the LABELShop® BEE3®, a portable 3-in-1 heat-shrink tube, bar code and adhesive label thermal transfer printer, was selected by the editorial staff of Wire & Cable Technology International magazine as one of nine Top Wire & Cable Connector Products of 2008. K-Sun was also named a regional business of the year for 2008 by the St. Croix Economic Development Corporation. The Future K-Sun is committed to being a world leader in industrial identification solutions by providing unique solutions through technology innovations, strong customer support, dedicated professional employees, continued flow of new products, and aggressive distribution partnerships.
