TLMI's Eugene Singer Award Winners
GLOUCESTER, Mass.—The Tag and Label Manufacturers Institute (TLMI) announced the winners of its Eugene Singer Award for Management Excellence. One of TLMI's highest honors, the award recognizes excellence in business management as measured and defined by an established set of growth and profitability ratios through a company's participation in the TLMI Management Ratio Study.
The Singer Award is given annually to four narrow-web converting companies—each company within a certain sales range category. The 2010 TLMI Eugene Singer Awards were given to the following companies at the association's recent converter meeting:
• Fountain Valley, Calif.-based Coast Label Company won in its category for the third time. The small company category is defined by annual sales of less than $6 million.
• Fairfield, Ohio-based Kopco Graphics, Inc. won for the mid-range company category, defined by sales of $6-$14 million. This is Kopco's second TLMI Eugene Singer Award.
• Aurora, Ill.-based The Label Printers won for the medium company category, defined by sales of $15-$35 million. This is The Label Printer's first Eugene Singer Award.
• Longwood, Fla.-based Consolidated Label won for the large company category defined by sales greater than $35 million. This is Consolidated Label's eighth Eugene Singer Award.
"TLMI would like to congratulate this year's Eugene Singer Award Winners," commented Frank Sablone, TLMI president. "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."
