Press release from the issuing company

Top 50 GPO suppliers list for 4th quarter 2009 published

Chambersburg, PA – Printers that know how to schedule production downtime to accommodate government print jobs are increasing their work flow and profits at a time when other printers are searching for work, according to Government Print Management a division of e-LYNXX Corporation.

"Hundreds of millions of dollars are spent each year by the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) on printing, and printers who know how to win that work are increasing their profitability substantially," said Deborah Snider, senior vice president of Government Print Management, a division of e-LYNXX Corporation. "Even during these tough economic times, our printer clients are enjoying increased work thanks to GPO.   GPO actually awards more than $425 million in print jobs to the private sector annually.  Those winning this work have developed GPO as a solid secondary market that fills what would otherwise be non-productive and non-revenue generating production downtimes."The success of these printers is reflected in the 4th quarter of 2009 (4Q09) Top 50 GPO Suppliers List.  Of the more than 1,027 print suppliers that obtained GPO work during 4Q09 (October through December), NPC (News Printing Company) of Claysburg, Pennsylvania, won the most work with $7,595,342 awarded to the firm.
