The Flexographic Technical Association has presented John Crammer of Best Label as the sole recipient of the 2013 FTA President’s Award.
According to the organization, Crammer has demonstrated an ongoing and strong commitment to the goals and objectives of the Association and Foundation. "He is a vocal proponent of education, and routinely stresses the importance of elevating skill sets at all levels within the flexographic business community. He first investigated, then invested in FTA’s FIRST Certification Program, earning recognition as a FIRST certified Implementation Specialist. From there, he and a group of his managers set about embarking on the next level, a FIRST Company Certification, as the very first business to achieve this designation," the organization says.
Crammer is active in sharing what he and his company have learned. Presenting on FTA and affiliated organization meetings agendas, he has addressed topics that pertain to the importance of process control and the utilization of technology to successfully achieve business objectives. As a speaker at the 2011 Printing Industries of America Color Management Conference and in the FIRST Session—in addition to co-chairing the Emerging Trends Session—at the 2013 Forum, Crammer has never been shy about stepping up and helping others learn from his experiences.
In representing the narrow web printing community, Crammer recently assumed the definitive role of organizational leader as he joined the FTA Board of Directors and FFTA Board of Trustees in March of last year.
"John is a serious 'can-do' leader who’s not afraid to plow new ground and commit his personal and company resources for the common good of the flexographic business community. For this admirable quality, he is well deserving of the 2013 FTA President’s Award," the organization says.
