They were one of the key early market sectors to realize the potential of our labelling technology—and to adopt it.

The impact of shorter production runs, combined with the established practices at lean, productive companies to minimize inventories at all stages of production, has resulted in many supply chain changes, including those at converters that supply materials to package printers.
During the course of TLMI's four-day annual meeting in Naples, Fla. last month, TLMI Chairman Art Yerecic, president of Yerecic Label, presented attendees with some upbeat stats, along with several awards for Converter of the Year, Supplier of the Year, and several Environmental Leadership awards.
TLMI has reported a highly successful Annual Meeting, with more than 400 attendees, 100 supplier table top exhibits, the highest representation of converter companies in years, and outstanding support from 40 meeting sponsors. The winners of the 35th Annual Label Awards Competition were also announced—22 different members won for printing excellence in various categories.
