Precision Datalabel Inc., is locally owned and operated by J. Edwin Simms and business partner, whom is also his wife of 46 years, Barbara Simms. Edwin initially got started in the label industry in 1988 with a long time friend David Shepherd. David came to Nova Scotia from Ontario in pursue of other life adventures and decided to launch a label company. David was involved with a family label business in Ontario so this was nothing new to him. David put the call out for a computer programmer and a mechanical master mind and Edwin answered the call.

Shortly there after Precision Datalabel began production of all types of business data labels, dot matrix data labels and all variable information data labels. This along with blank and preprinted single colour thermal labels was the mainstay for Precision Datalabel for the first few years of business.

In 1990 Precision Datalabel purchased it’s first of several new label making presses by adding a multi colour Hot Foil Stamping and Embossing press. In 1992 Precision Datalabel again purchased new technology by adding a second multi colour press. This time  flexographic. Again in 1995 PDL added a brand new multi Colour, 10 station flexographic press with all the whistles and bells. In 2011 Precision Datalabel moved into its new and  present day location at 333 Industrial Ave., in Truro's Industrial Business Park.  In 2014 after long hours of deliberation another new label press was installed. This time a dieless, toner based digital system was added to round out the production equipment.

Today in 2016, PDL has a staff, off and on of ten (10) both full time and part time. with Monday to Friday business hours. 8am to 4:30pm.

PD Label Inc., as we are sometimes referred to, produces some of the finest looking labels you will ever see, and has shipped from coast to coast, and as far south as Turks & Caicos.
