Rapid Labels is part of Hexagon Holdings, a group set up by Tom Sturgess and Mercury Capital in July 2014.
Hexagon Holdings is a competitively-based group of label & packaging businesses. They operate as independent financial and administrative entities while sharing a common CEO - Greg Howell. Rob Astley is the group CFO. Hexagon operates virtually with no head office or infrastructure.
Nelson-based Tom Sturgess is our chairman and primary shareholder. On top of Tom's industrial group, Tiri, Tom Sturgess is also a significant pastoral land owner, with eight sheep and beef stations (around 130,000 stock units) from Wairarapa to Otago. Tom's farming assets go under the badge Lone Star Farms and Lone Star have a website www.lonestarfarms.co.nz which details this impressive venture.
Tom and Mercury Capital also own Blue Star Group in New Zealand. While it has a similar shareholding structure, this group of companies is managed entirely separately to Hexagon Holdings.
