The Label Printers Wins TLMI’s Eugene Singer Award For Management Excellence

By Elizabeth Bellaver


The Label Printers has once again won TLMI’s Eugene Singer Award for Management Excellence.  Bill Kane, The Label Printers Chief Executive said, “We don’t run our business to win awards – but awards are a good outcome of a business well run. The Eugene Singer Award is always an honor – and a testament to our employees’ efforts. We manage our inventory, we invest in technology, and we do all of the little things – and it all adds up.”

Lori Campbell, Chief of Operations, said in an email to notify all of the company’s employees about this 5th consecutive Singer Award on the night she accepted it, “…At The Label Printers I believe we have ingrained in our DNA a sense of never being satisfied, never content to rest on our laurels.  It is one of the attributes that makes me most proud to work here…That doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate.  We should (and will!) celebrate our achievements, accolades, and awards and bask in the momentary glory….just as long as we keep asking “ok, what’s next?...Congratulations to us all and now let’s get back to earning next year’s award!!”

TLMI calls “the prestigious Eugene Singer Award for Management Excellence…one of the Tag and Label Manufacturers Institute’s highest honors…this award recognizes excellence in business management, measured and defined by an established set of ratios through the 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 [which are]:  Small company – annual sales of less than $6 million, Mid-range company – annual sales of $6 to $14 million, Medium company – annual sales of $15 to $35 million, and Large company – annual sales greater than $35 million.”  The Label Printers won in the Medium category.

The Singer Award is a coveted honor both because it validates the performance of strong companies, but also because the companies submitting applications for it represent nearly 40% of the North American label market, and include the biggest competitors in the business.

The company has now won the award for the fifth time in a row, in their fifth year of eligibility.
