PARAMUS, N.J., JANUARY 6, 2006 – NAPL (www.napl.org), the trade association for excellence in graphic communications management, has selected 20 graphic communications companies to receive its 2005 Management Plus Awards, which recognize management excellence in all phases of operation. NAPL bestowed its highest Management Plus honor, the William K. Marrinan Hall of Fame Award, on The Sheridan Press, Hanover, Pa.-based company serving the scientific, technical, medical, and scholarly journal markets. (Editors: For more information on this award, see attached NAPL Press Release, "2005 Management Plus Hall of Fame Award Goes to the Sheridan Press.") Five companies earned Management Plus Gold Awards, 10 received Silver Awards, and four were named Merit Award winners. Gold Award winners were Z3 Graphix, Lenexa, Kan; Action Printing, Fond du Lac, Wis.; Daily Printing, Inc., Plymouth, Minn.; Patented Printing Co., Inc., Dayton, Ohio; and Nies/Artcraft Companies, St. Louis, Mo. "Succeeding in today’s hyper-competitive marketplace requires nothing less than management excellence and these companies have shown that they excel in all operational areas," said Joseph P. Truncale, NAPL president and chief executive officer. "I and everyone at NAPL extend our sincere congratulations to all the 2005 Management Plus honorees." The awards will be presented at a special banquet on Thursday, March 2, during NAPL’s 2006 Top Management Conference in Orlando, Fla. The annual NAPL Management Plus program is sponsored by Compass Capital Partners, MAN Roland, and American Printer magazine. In addition to receiving the award, the Hall of Fame inductee and the top Gold Award winners in each category (there are five categories based on sales volume and one for in-plant printers) have the honor of presenting scholarships to the graphic communications schools of their choice. The scholarships are funded by NAPL and the Management Plus sponsors. All Management Plus award winners become members of the NAPL Management Plus Society, a peer group dedicated to improving and promoting the graphic arts. The Society offers valuable opportunities for networking with executives of leading companies in the industry.
