Heidelberg Cited for Industry Contributions
The National Association for Printing Leadership, Paramus, N.J., awarded Heidelberg USA, Kennesaw, Ga., its 2003 Industry Award.
Niels M. Winther, president and CEO of Heidelberg USA, received the award at the NAPL's 2003 Top Management Conference in Scottsdale, Ariz. The NAPL selected the manufacturer for developing a broad spectrum of advanced products, including sheetfed and web offset presses, digital printing presses, prepress units, machines for cutting, folding, and binding publications, and high-performance copiers.
"Heidelberg's contribution to the printing and graphic arts industry is ongoing and immeasurable," says Joseph P. Truncale, NAPL president and CEO. Truncale also recognized Heidelberg for integrating prepress, press and postpress operations, and for expanding the knowledge base of the industry through its Print Media Academy.
NAPL also recognized Heidelberg for supporting the education of the industry through sponsorship of the NAPL's Printing Economics Research Center (PERC) econometric studies and reporting; Economic Edge newsletter and State of the Industry Report; and Printing Manager magazine.
The industry award is given to a graphic arts manufacturer or supplier in recognition of its contribution to the print industry.
