So is there anything different about winning this prestigious award for a third (straight) time? Lori Campbell, Chief of Operations at The Label Printers says, “Of course we love the Singer award, and the validation that it represents. And, it’s nice to jump off the CQIP highway for just a moment to enjoy it. But the real value is in the TLMI Management Ratio Study (the results upon which the award is given) itself, because it allows us to see areas that we can improve upon.”
As always, The Label Printers wants to acknowledge the involvement of their customers and suppliers in this award – suppliers who help in many ways, and customers who understand the value beyond the price. And Campbell echoes Kane’s remarks about the company’s employees – and how they’ve risen to the challenges presented by the economy for the last few years. “[The Eugene Singer Award] also makes it clear that tough decisions are good for the long-term health of the company.”
TLMI calls “the prestigious Eugene Singer Award for Management Excellence…one of the Tag and Label Manufacturers Institute’s (TLMI) highest honors…this award recognizes excellence in business management, measured and defined by an established set of ratios through the participation in the TLMI Management Ratio Study. The Singer Award is given annually to four narrow web converting companies; each company within a certain sales range category [which are]: Small company – annual sales of less than $6 million, Mid-range company – annual sales of $6 to $14 million, Medium company – annual sales of $15 to $35 million, and Large company – annual sales greater than $35 million.” The Label Printers won in the Medium category.
The Singer Award is a coveted honor both because it validates the performance of strong companies, but also because the companies submitting applications for it represent nearly 40% of the North American label market, and include the biggest competitors in the business.
