NAPL to Honor the Industry’s Best-Managed Companies

February 21, 2012
EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ—Feb. 21, 2012—The National Association for Printing Leadership (NAPL) will honor 15 graphic communications companies with NAPL Management Plus Awards at the industry-wide Vision 3 Summit in Marco Island, FL, tonight. Management Plus Awards are sponsored by manroland; Printing Impressions magazine serves as media sponsor.
Think Patented of Dayton, OH, will be awarded the Management Plus program’s highest honor, the William K. Marrinan Hall of Fame Award, in addition to a 2011 Management Plus Gold Award. Think Patented becomes the 28th company to enter the Management Plus Hall of Fame, an honor accorded to a select group of companies that have consistently earned Management Plus awards over a period of years. Think Patented has won 10 Management Plus Awards over the last decade, including three Gold Awards in the last three years.
“We are very honored to be selected for the Management Plus Hall of Fame Award,” said Niels Winther, company chairman and managing partner. “While many opportunities exist to judge a printed piece, only Management Plus gives you a complete picture of every aspect of your business—it’s a tool for analyzing your company on a holistic basis, highlighting areas that need improvement so that you can focus on them.

“Think Patented has participated for several years and we have seen progress year over year in our level of achievement. The Hall of Fame Award is a huge honor,” noted Winther.
"We're very proud of this award,” added Think Patented CEO and Managing Partner Ken McNerney. “We take this as a vote of confidence for what we do, and we appreciate it on behalf of our staff and our customers."
