One of TLMI’s highest honors, the award recognizes excellence in business management measured and defined by an established set of growth and profitability ratios through the TLMI Management Ratio Study. The awards are given annually to four narrow web converting companies, each within a certain sales range category. The 2010 TLMI Eugene Singer Awards were given to the following companies at the association’s Converter Meeting in Palm Beach, FL, USA:
• Columbine Label, Centennial, CO, USA. The small company category is defined by annual sales of less than $6 million.
• Kopco Graphics, Fairfield, OH, USA, won in the mid-range company category, defined by sales of $6-$14 million. This is Kopco’s third Singer Award.
• The Label Printers, Aurora, IL, USA, won in the medium company category, defined by sales of $15-$35 million. This is The Label Printer’s second Eugene Singer Award.
• Consolidated Label, Longwood, FL, won in the large company category, for sales greater than $35 million. This is Consolidated Label’s ninth Singer Award.
“TLMI congratulates this year's Eugene Singer Award winners,” says TLMI President Frank Sablone. “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.”
