March 15, 2010

The awards recognize excellence in management, and are presented annually by TLMI.

Four US label converters who have risen to the top of their field have been presented with the prestigious Eugene Singer Awards for Management Excellence by the Tag & Label Manufacturers Institute. The prizes were presented March 9 at TLMI’s annual Converter Meeting, held in Palm Springs, CA, USA.

The awards recognize excellence in business management measured and defined by an established set of growth and profitability ratios through the participation in the TLMI Management Ratio Study, which is open to the institute’s members. The Singer Awards are given annually to four narrow web converting companies, each within a certain sales range category. Here are this year’s winners:

Coast Label Company, Fountain Valley, CA, won in the small company category (annual sales under $6 million) for the third time.

Kopko Graphics Inc. Fairfield, OH, won for the mid-range company category (sales of $6 to $14 million). This is Kopco’s second Eugene Singer Award.

The Label Printers, Aurora, IL, won for the first time in the medium company category ($15 to $35 million).

Consolidated Label, Longwood, FL, won in the large company category (above $35 million). This is Consolidated Label’s eighth Eugene Singer Award.

“TLMI would like to congratulate this year’s Eugene Singer Award Winners. The association’s converter members continue to realize the benefit of participating in the TLMI Ratio Study, and the tangible ongoing value the study provides to their businesses and to their business planning strategies. TLMI is honored to be able to continue to provide this service to our converter members," said Frank Sablone, TLMI president.
