Allegra Network Presents Supplier Of The Year Award To LBS
Press release from the issuing company
Troy, Mich., June 24, 2003 -- Allegra Network recently awarded Lawrence Binding Systems (LBS), the company's first ever Supplier of the Year Award at their 2003 International Convention in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Brian Baker, Allegra Network's printing equipment specialist, presented the award to LBS President Bill Lawrence based on the company's continuous commitment to outstanding service to Allegra Network's franchisees.
Tim Wood, Allegra Network's director of technology commented, "Bill has worked closely with us for over ten years in the development of new equipment for our centers and recommends the equipment that best fits our franchisees' bindery needs. He also takes the time to meet with us quarterly and works with us to establish promotions and competitive pricing for our franchise system."
Baker added, "LBS works with us to create programs unique to our organization and often provides us with equipment on a trial basis to evaluate, allowing us to give better advice to our franchisees and making it easier to support the equipment after the purchase."
"This type of knowledge is very valuable to us, and it helps solidify the relationship we have with preferred suppliers such as LBS," Wood adds. "In addition, LBS is currently providing input on a new digital printing program we plan to launch later this year.
Lawrence commented, "We are very excited to work with the Allegra Network and its franchisees; they are a progressive leader in the industry on a fast track, now and in the years to come. We are proud and privileged to work with them as they achieve even greater successes."
This was the company's first combined show after the acquisition of Insty-Prints, Inc. early last year. According to Wood, "The suppliers invited represent products we have evaluated and recommend to our franchisees, as well as service and equipment suppliers with whom we have established national contract pricing."
