Monarch Litho Tops GPO Printer List
CHAMBERSBURG, PA—A few years ago, actor Mel Gibson had the lead role in a Hollywood film called “What Women Want.” Perhaps Monarch Litho, of Montebello, CA, can produce a documentary highlighting their capabilities and call it “What GPO Customers Want.” For the second straight year and the fifth time in the last six years, Monarch Litho has topped the chart for procuring the most U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) work among fellow printers in the annual top 50 ranking, supplied by Government Print Management. Monarch hauled down an impressive $38 million to outdistance second-place NPC of Claysburg, PA. NPC is the only other company to garner the top spot over the past six years.
More than 1,800 print suppliers obtained GPO work totaling $421 million during fiscal year 2008, which ran from October 2007 to September 2008. The top 50 accounted for more than $287 million of the total.
