Press release from the issuing company

Sewickley, PA, March 22, 2007— “Progress in every field, including the graphic arts, is dependent upon the continued infusion of new talent that brings fresh perspectives, creative ideas, high energy levels, and the ability to see opportunity in the challenges ahead,” states Gerald Nathe, Baldwin chairman and CEO. “Harold Gegenheimer’s commitment to the graphic arts, and to innovation, was grounded in his strong belief that education stimulates and develops the very attributes necessary for progress.” “The ten PGSF scholarships that Baldwin Technology is funding as the Harold W. Gegenheimer Memorial Scholarships are in recognition of Harold’s long-standing support for continuing education,” Mr. Nathe continued. “We at Baldwin hope the financial assistance that these scholarships provide to young men and women will enable them to develop career paths that will allow them to become successful contributors to future progress in the graphic arts.” “We are honored at the Print and Graphics Scholarship Foundation to, again, work with Baldwin to administer additional scholarships.” said Ted Ringman, VP of Development at PGSF. “With these ten additional scholarships this brings the number of scholarships at PGSF associated with Baldwin and honoring the Gegenheimer name and the family’s commitment to education and sharing knowledge to twenty-eight. Currently over 240 students at 105 colleges are receiving financial assistance ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 through PGSF. Yet we have to turn down several thousand deserving applicants each year. I would like to strongly urge companies, both printers and suppliers, to follow the example of Baldwin and help fund graphic arts education and training. The future of our industry depends on finding, educating, and then employing talented young people.” For information regarding tax-deductible contributions, establishing a scholarship or about PGSF, the largest national independent scholarship effort for the graphic arts industry, please contact Ted Ringman at 847-382-9103 or [email protected]
