Who We Are

Our Story


Founded in 2001 by John Hurley, Marathon Labels represents a story about the power of the entrepreneurial spirit and high-performance manufacturing. Mr. Hurley saw a need for a customer focused printing company with a UL Compliant niche. Having spent his career in the industry, he identified there was a glaring need for a printing company to partner with the manufacturing industry to simplify the label engineering process. Add good timing, a little luck, and a lot of hard work; Marathon Labels was created.
