Tuesday, May 10, 2016

Sayville, NY: The Sustainable Green Printing Partnership (SGP), the leading certification organization for the printing industry, continues to show high re-certification rates for the certified print community. Many SGP facilities have maintained certification for a number of years. In the first quarter of 2016, the following companies have been re-certified.
 
Global Packaging, Oaks, PA, first certified 2011
Miller Zell, Atlanta, GA, first certified 2012
Minuteman Press, Lawrence, KS, first certified 2009
Modernistic, Stillwater, MN, first certified 2010
Navitor, N Mankato, MN, first certified 2011
Premier Press, Portland, OR, first certified 2011
 
SGP printers are required to be re-certified every two years. This involves meeting the current SGP criteria and passing an on-site audit. A number of these facilities have been certified since the early days of the SGP program, but because of the value they see in continuous improvement and maintaining certification, they they have been re-certified a number of times.
