Press release from the issuing company
ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Nov. 27 -- InformationWeek magazine has ranked Mail-Well, Inc. among the top information technology (IT) innovators in the United States for 2001.
Mail-Well moved up to 190th place from 357th place last year in the rankings of the top 500 information technology users recently cited by InformationWeek. Within the manufacturing sector, Mail-Well received gold awards in E-business strategy and customer knowledge, a silver award for technology strategy and a bronze award in business practices.
For 13 years, the InformationWeek 500 has tracked the IT agendas of the nation's largest and most innovative IT organizations, providing a unique opportunity to understand and examine their business practices across core areas of operations. To obtain a spot in this annual ranking, companies must demonstrate a pattern of technological, procedural, and organizational innovation.
"We are pleased to be honored by InformationWeek as a top technical innovator among manufacturers,'' said Paul Reilly, Mail-Well Chairman, President and CEO. "We will continue to build on our technical expertise that we use in our day-to-day operations.''
Mail-Well has specialized in four growing multibillion-dollar market segments in the highly fragmented printing industry: commercial printing, envelopes, labels and printed office products. Mail-Well currently has approximately 15,000 employees and more than 140 printing facilities and numerous sales offices throughout North America and the United Kingdom. Mail-Well reported sales of $2.4 billion in 2000. The previously announced strategic plan will result in the company concentrating on its Envelope and Commercial Print segments where it holds today a leading position. The other segments will be exited. The company is headquartered in Englewood, Colo.
