Banta Named to Fortune Magazine Most Admired Companies List

Press release from the issuing company

MENASHA, WI --- For the second consecutive year, Fortune magazine named Banta Corporation as one of its "Most Admired Companies" in America. The Menasha-based company was ranked second overall in the printing industry category and increased its overall score from last year’s rankings (from 5.89 to 6.09). Appearing in the March 4th issue, Fortune’s 20th anniversary list was compiled following extensive research and analysis. A select group of 10,000 executives, directors and analysts rated the 10 largest companies (by revenues) in each of the 58 industries based on eight attributes: innovation, financial soundness, employee talent, use of corporate assets, long-term investment value, social responsibility, quality of management, and quality of products and services. In the printing industry, Banta ranked first in the employee talent attribute and second in use of corporate assets, social responsibility, financial soundness, long-term investment value, and quality of products and services. "We are honored to be included on this prestigious list for the second consecutive year," said Donald Belcher, chairman and chief executive officer of Banta Corporation. "It’s especially gratifying to receive this recognition since the input that prompts the rankings comes from our peers, industry analysts and others outside of Banta. For more than 100 years, we have focused our energies on advancing the eight attributes on which this list is based, and we are honored that Banta is recognized as a leader in these critically important areas."
