The Best Managed Company awards, named for Eugene Singer (who created the prize) recognize business management excellence as determined by results of the TLMI Management Ratio Study, an annual study of participating member companies that examines and compares financial and operating data. Awards are given in four size categories, based on annual sales dollars.
The winners for 2007, all US converter companies, are:
• Coast Label, Fountain Valley, CA, in the small company category (under $6 million).
• SpectraGraphics, Lenexa, KS, in the mid-range category ($6-$15 million).
• Consolidated Label, Longwood, FL, in the medium category ($15-$35 million); and
• Belmark, De Pere, WI, in the large company category (above $35 million)
Both, Coast Label and SpectraGraphics, are first time winners. Consolidated Label has taken home the Singer Award for six consecutive years. Belmark has won the prize for 10 years in a row.
