Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania—January 24, 2012—The Label Printing Industries of America (LPIA), a special interest group of Printing Industries of America, announces the call for nominations for the LPIA Hall of Fame.
In my mind, being recognized by your peers is an honor and compliment on a job well done. —James Hammer, President & CEO, Hammer Packaging
Established in 2003, the LPIA Hall of Fame is awarded to an individual who has reached an unsurpassed level of excellence and achievement in the label converting, packaging, product decoration, or top-sheet industry. Sponsored by LPIA, this award is dedicated to the spirit of those industry pioneers whose hard work and determination created a vibrant, growing, and changing industry.
To be judged by your “peers” in the industry and selected to the LPIA Hall of Fame is an honor. For me to be alongside the individuals already in the hall of fame is unreal. I will be forever grateful for this honor and thanks to all who had a hand in putting me in the LPIA Hall of fame. —Steve Frantz, COO, Huston Patterson Corporation
Nominating an individual provides an opportunity to honor someone you believe has made a major, long-term contribution to and has had a significant impact on our industry. The award recipient will be selected by a panel of industry leaders and will be honored before his or her peers at the annual LPIA Fall Management Conference.
I am honored to be the recipient of the LPIA Hall of Fame. The LPIA organization has been a source for knowledge, experience, and friendship in the label industry for me and without a doubt, I have received more from being active in this organization than I have or could ever put back in. For that I am truly appreciative and humbled. As the Printing Industries of America profit leader data points out, the best in our industry focus on their niches. Groups like the LPIA are an important component for furthering the advancement of those niches. —Mark Glendenning, CEO, Inland Label & Marketing Services
