Material Handling Solutions

Creating Order, Increasing Efficiencies

The Kennedy Group is the leading provider of permanent and temporary identification systems for reusable containers, mobile/shipping racks, shelving and pallets. Our Original Placard and Nameplate identification products provide efficient, versatile and cost-saving means of labeling and tracking virtually any reusable asset.


A failed labeling system can translate into the shutdown of production lines, costing thousands of dollars in lost production and crucial labor time. It’s just not worth the risk to use products that are less than the best, or deliver subpar products to your customers. So before you do business, ask one question: Are you using Kennedy?


The Kennedy Placard Label Holder System features HOLD & Release™ technology,  a proprietary system that allows labels to be applied, removed and re-applied on the Kennedy Placard Label Holder hundreds of times with little surface degradation. Even when exposed to the elements and the typical abuse that comes from shipping. This means that labels don’t fall off in transit, so containers get where they are supposed to go. And that labels easily and completely come off when they are supposed to, with no torn labels or adhesive residue.  

Firmly established in the material handling management space for nearly two decades, The Kennedy Group has over 250 distributors and more than 2,000 customers worldwide in diverse industries, such as:

  • Automotive
  • Distribution
  • Chemical
  • Retail
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Governmental agencies, like the U.S. Department of Defense

The Placard Label Holder – Never Scrape Adhesive Residue Again

The Kennedy Group invented the Original Placard label holder, which allows labels to be applied and removed with ease, without label and adhesive build-up.  Never again waste time scraping adhesive residue or resolving mis-shipments. Placards can also dictate where labels should be placed, ensuring order and consistency. Watch our video to see for yourself.
