PARAMUS, N.J., FEBRUARY 5, 2007 – Komori Corporation, a Tokyo-based premier manufacturer of sheetfed and web offset presses, is the recipient of the 2007 Industry Award of NAPL (www.napl.org), the trade association for excellence in graphic communications management. Stephan Carter, president and chief operating officer of Komori America Corporation, will accept the award on behalf of Komori during NAPL’s Top Management Conference, March 7-11, in Santa Barbara, Calif.
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.
“Komori’s insistence on continually ‘pushing the envelope’ of press performance, coupled with its strong and ongoing commitment to driving innovation in graphic communications, uniquely qualifies this outstanding organization for the NAPL Industry Award,” said Joseph P. Truncale, NAPL president and chief executive officer. “I and everyone at NAPL congratulate Komori on this well-deserved honor.”
“All of us at Komori are extremely pleased to receive the 2007 Industry Award from NAPL, an organization that shares our commitment to advancing and supporting the graphic communications industry and the companies that comprise it,” said Komori’s Carter.
The NAPL Industry Award is part of the NAPL Awards program, which also includes a Technical Leadership Award. (See Feb. 5, 2007 NAPL press release, “Dr. J. Page Crouch of Clemson University Is Recipient of 2007 NAPL Technical Leadership Award,” for more information.)
