The Tennessee converter operates a label distribution and serialization center within its customer’s facilities.

Consolidated Products Inc. (CPI), Knoxville, TN, USA, has been named Innovation Partner of the Year by A.O. Smith Corporation, a manufacturer of residental and commercial water heating equipment. A year ago CPI received the Supplier of the Year Award for Quality and Reliability from the same customer.

CPI was recognized by its customer for developing innovative inventory control programs as well as for the development of an Operational Print Services center within multiple A.O. Smith manufacturing facilities. These centers serve as the central point of label distribution and include on-demand serialization and sub-assembly of all compliance labeling, documentation and manuals required for Smith products.

The Tennessee converting company, established in 1988, specializes in producing and compliant labeling, serialization and documents to major manufacturers of appliances, medical devices, electrical components, and others.
