New Facilities for Nordmeccanica in U.S. & Europe HAUPPAUGE, NY—Twelve years after opening its doors in North America, Nordmeccanica is moving into a new, larger location. The new building, twice the size of its current Edgewood, NY office, is located in Hauppauge, NY in one of the largest industrial parks in North America. At this new location, just a few miles away from the cur- rent one, Nordmec- canica will be able to grow the size of spare parts invento- ry and permanently feature a full size 59-in. wide laminator. The larger space will also afford the firm the opportunity to store a signifi- cant number of ancillaries, such as roll handling carts and adhesive mixers, to guarantee immediate delivery. The sales and after sales team will also grow with the target to improve the quality of the service to customers. The decision to move into a new location has been motivated by the constantly increasing number of installations, as well as by the addition of the new prod- uct line of metallizing machinery. Nordmeccanica will begin operating out of Hauppauge on April 1. In other news, Nordmeccanica is hosting a May 16 grand opening event of the new location of Nordmeccanica Vacuum. The expanding market of metallizing machinery required a prop- erly sized building. The location will allow for an efficient assembly process while complying with the most stringent criteria in energy saving and environ- mental protection. The site is in the same industrial park as the corporate location of the Nordmeccanica Group in Piacenza, Italy. The all day event features a com- prehensive agenda that will include an international conference on coating and metallizing technologies. Tailored Label Products Is “Manufacturer of The Year” MENOMONEE FALLS, WI—Strong corporate leadership and a commit- ment to investing in new technology, continuous process improvement and employee training and development; these were all deciding factors in Tai- lored Label Products (TLP) securing its second Wisconsin Manufacturer of the Year Grand Award (MOTY). The man- ufacturer of high performance labels, tags and die cut adhesives now stands as a repeat winner of the award, which recognizes Wisconsin manufacturers for exceptional innovation, philanthro- py, commitment to customer satisfac- tion and job creation. TLP, which took similar honors in 2005, earned its award in the small company category, open to manu- facturers with 1 to 99 employees. The award winners, selected from among 34 total nominees in four size cate- gories, were revealed Feb. 27 at a black tie banquet at The Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee. Honorees in the 26th annual competition were selected by an independent panel of judges from industry, education and the public sector that focused on how each company ’s contributions helped drive Wisconsin's economy. “I am absolutely honored that TLP has been recognized with this very prestigious award for a second time,” said CEO Mike Erwin. “ T his achieve- ment is a testament to our innovative manufacturing processes and dedi- cated team of professionals, without whom this would not have been possi- ble. I thank them all from the bottom of my heart.” TLP is continually recognized as one of Wisconsin’s best workplaces. In addition to the MOTY award, TLP has also received such distinctions at Best of the Best Workplaces of America and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Top 100 workplaces award for several years running. A heavy focus on community involve- ment was another factor the judges considered. The company ’s “Touching the Lives of People” program, estab- lished in 2007, started out as the team name for a cancer run and has now expanded into a company wide culture that has employees asking, “When, where and how can we help?” www.flexography.org MARCH 2014 FLEXO 61 MEMBERS & MANEUVERS
