FLEXO Magazine : Sustainable Spring 2011
Three Companies Take Top Honors in the FTA Environmental Excellence Award Competition The Flexographic Technical Association (FTA) is proud to recognize three of its member-companies in the 11th Annual FTA Environmental Excellence Award competi- tion for their outstanding environmental achievements. With competition the heaviest in the history of the awards, these exceptional companies rose to the forefront. Paragon Label of Petaluma, CA and Prairie State Group of Franklin Park, IL share top honors in the Process Improvement category, while PolyCello of Amherst, Nova Scotia won in the Technical Innova- tion category. “Having been a judge several times, it was exciting to see so many companies submitting entries this year,” says award judge Michael Rovogein, of Tension Envelope Corporation. “ The efforts have increased from a single element to concerted efforts in overall facility environmental management. While many of the practices were known techniques, the way [these companies] combined several areas of concentration into an overall program, promoted the process internally and involved the whole of the company was impressive. It is good to see the effort being expended toward environmental stewardship. ” PARAGON LABEL – PROCESS IMPROVEMENT Paragon Label, an FTA member for nearly 20 years, is com- mitted to producing the highest quality labels to its customers. Paragon’s parent company, Mrs. Grossman’s Paper Com- pany, is one of the largest sticker manufacturers in the world. The company ’s sustainability accomplishments are highlight- ed proudly on its Web site. Paragon Label has been installing and innovating environ- mentally-friendly applications and practices for many years. The company has been recognized by numerous regional and industry organizations for its sustainability efforts, and now adds the prestigious FTA Environmental Excellence Award to its list of honors. www.flexography.org SPRING 2011 Sustainable FLEXO 13 PARAGON LABEL
