Today we announced two awards we are proud and honored to receive. Our envelope operations team was recently recognized with a 2011 Industry Safety Leader Award by the Envelope Manufacturers Association (EMA) at its Spring Conference. From the banners that hang in our plant, visitors can see that this is the sixth consecutive year our team has received recognition by the EMA for our safety performance. A focus on safety should never be taken for granted, and it’s rewarding to see such dedication from our team year after year.
We were also honored to receive the MAILCOM Technical Excellence Award during the MAILCOM 2012 Conference. The award was the result of our efforts to standardize equipment, processes and employee training at all our facilities. This was part of our strategy to create mirrored operations across our platform. This allows us to be the most efficient for our customers by shifting production based on workloads and capacity. Still, it’s one thing to have a vision in mind and quite another to have employees with the skill and knowledge to bring it to life. I’m convinced we have the best team in the world when it comes to producing direct mail, and this award helps prove that.
Thank you and congratulations to everyone for bringing such dedication to the job day in and day out. I appreciate it. And I know our customers do too.
