The regional organization will focus on improving pressroom productivity through employee motivation and education.

Bill Malm, technical specialist at Harper Corporation of America, and Mike Erwin, president of Tailored Label products, will address the Great Lakes Group of the Flexographic Technical Association (FTA) on January 7. The theme for the event is improving pressroom productivity through employee motivation and education.

Malm will discuss the role that training, process standardization and anilox inventory management play in making a print shop successful and profitable. He will also offer an overview of the Technical Education Services Team (TEST) program, a printer education initiative developed by the FTA.

Erwin will review proven approaches for motivating employees. His company has been honored with many regional and national awards in recent years.

David Lanska, FTA Great Lakes Group chairman, says the session promises to be a “must-attend” event for printers looking to reduce costs and improve productivity.

The event will take place at the Institute for Graphics & Imaging on the campus of Waukesha County Technical College in Pewaukee, WI, USA. For more information about the event, visit David Lanska's blog at For questions and to RSVP, contact Lanska at
