ILS received the awards subsequent to their revenue growth, progressive business strategy, and continued investment in the company – including two new WS6000 HP Indigo presses, automated workflow and ERP systems, and strategic planning and employee development programs.
The Manny Awards are committed to recognizing the manufacturing industry's greatest accomplishments, by honoring local companies for their innovation and best practices.
The Tri-State Success Awards were founded on the premise that the Tri-state's (Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio) strength as a thriving business center is built on the growth and success of its businesses. The Tri-state Success Awards honor the most successful and consistent public, private and emerging companies in the Tri-state region.
Small businesses play a vital role in the economic well-being of the Cincinnati region, and Small Business Excellence Awards honor those companies that are excelling in this critical segment of the business community. “2010 was a banner year for ILS,” says Kathy Popovich, ILS director of marketing and communications. “We made a significant investment in equipment, ERP and workflow systems, as well as in strategic planning and employee development programs in order to further position ILS as the North American leader in HP Indigo printing for labels and packaging.
“Cincinnati has a very vital business community, and we were honored to receive all three of these awards. Our goal, through the recession, was to emerge stronger and better than ever,” Popovich adds, “And the receipt of these awards definitely proves that our strategy is working.”
