GPO Announces Latest Top 50 Supplier List

December 14, 2012
CHAMBERSBURG, PA—Even in light of volatile marketplaces, private-sector companies that serve the printing needs of numerous federal government agencies and departments [procured through the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO)] continue to enjoy a positive revenue stream, according to figures compiled for the latest “Top 50 GPO Suppliers” reports. In preparing the reports, the staff of Government Print Management noted some interesting trends.

The first three quarters of 2012 were nearly identical to 2011 in terms of total volume procured by the GPO. Volumes for the first three quarters of 2012 totaled $61 million, $83 million and $70 million, respectively, compared to $61 million, $79 million and $78 million for the same quarters for 2011.

“Although short term, this trend shows a relative steadiness in the amount of printing the government is sourcing from the private sector, and supports the idea of GPO work being a sustainable source of revenue,” said Deborah Snider, senior vice president of Government Print Management.

Also continuing is the longer-term trend of increases in volume between the first and second quarter. “This similarity, combined with the change from decline to relative stability, is encouraging,” Snider said. “Changes in government printing caused some worry. But with advances in green printing and acceptance of newer technologies, the (business) potential GPO printing holds for the industry is exciting.”

A look at the broad variety of printing companies that comprise the “Top 50” lists for the second and third quarters of 2012 is encouraging as well. While those at the very top are naturally larger-scale organizations, printers of all sizes and specialties are benefitting from their efforts. At the top of the list for the third quarter are NPC Inc. of Claysburg, PA, with $7.4 million in print volume; followed by Sourcelink of Miamisburg, OH, ($3.4M); PA Hutchison of Mayfield, PA, ($3.2M); Cenveo of Stamford, CT, ($2.7M); and Monarch Litho of Montebello, CA, ($2.5M).
