Monday, February 17, 2003
Westmont, Illinois — As part of its ongoing Learning Leadership program, MAN Roland Inc. has agreed to sponsor the Economic & Print Market Flash Reports, published by the Printing Industries of America. Developed by PIA's Economics and Research Department, the reports are dispatched once or twice monthly directly to PIA and GATF members via email. They are also posted on the PIA/GATF web portal — the Graphic Arts Information Network (www.gain.net). "We are very excited that MAN Roland is going to be sponsoring our Flash Reports," said Ronnie H. Davis, Ph.D., PIA’s Chief Economist. "These reports have proven to be a very popular source of information among our members. Our latest surveys show that members rely on them to keep up with the latest economic and print market conditions." In announcing the sponsorship agreement, Yves Rogivue, CEO of MAN Roland Inc., pointed to his company’s Learning Leadership program. "This is an example of how Learning Leadership ranges beyond the hands-on training of press operators and production supervisors and reaches into the executive offices of printing facilities across the country," he said. "We are honored to partner with PIA to bring this vital service to our industry’s top decision makers."
