Friday, March 03, 2006

Press release from the issuing company

PARAMUS, N.J., MARCH 2, 2006 - Eastman Kodak Company, a leading supplier of innovative products and services to graphic communications and other industries, is the recipient of the 2006 Industry Award of NAPL (www.napl.org), the trade association for excellence in graphic communications management. Kevin Joyce, managing director, United States and Canada, Kodak's Graphic Communications Group (GCG) will accept the award on behalf of the company on March 3, 2006, during NAPL's Top Management Conference in Orlando, Fla. "Kodak has nurtured the growth of graphic communications in myriad ways for nearly a century and continues to make groundbreaking contributions as the industry changes and expands," said Joseph P. Truncale, NAPL president and chief executive officer, in announcing the award. "The company's innovative products, steadfast commitment to corporate responsibility, and significant support of industry education uniquely qualify Kodak for this honor and NAPL is extremely proud to present its 2006 Industry Award to this exemplary organization." "It's gratifying to be recognized by an organization so strongly dedicated to helping printers grow their businesses," said Joyce. "Kodak is proud to share NAPL's commitment to helping print providers improve their profitability through innovation and technology, and we're honored to receive the 2006 Industry Award." The NAPL Industry Award is bestowed annually to a graphic arts manufacturer or supplier company in recognition of specific, noteworthy contributions to the industry. Candidate companies must also have an untarnished record of conducting business fairly and honestly and of providing quality products or services. Kodak is being honored for its long history and its current record of innovation for and service to the graphic communications industry. From the company's first sale of photo-materials for commercial printing in 1912 to its first electronic color separation scanner in the 1930s, first high-speed photo-typesetting papers and films in the 1960s, and first infrared digital printing plate in the 1980s, the company has continually helped printing and graphic communications company act on new opportunities. This is evidenced in the development of Kodak's current broad range of offerings, which includes computer-to-plate printing solutions and state-of-the-art workflow technologies serving graphic communications companies of all sizes and all industry segments. Kodak has also supported graphic communications education and the dissemination of knowledge in the industry in a number of ways, including its support of NAPL education activities such as periodicals and conferences. The NAPL Industry Award is part of the NAPL Awards program, which also includes a Technical Leadership Award (Marc Olin is the 2006 recipient of this honor) and, this year, a Lifetime Achievement Award (awarded to Harrie F. Lewis). See accompanying press releases for more information.
