In-plants Recognized for Achievements With IPMA Awards
I was excited to see this list of award-winning in-plants. I have visited all of them and seen their operations first hand. In fact, I toured Messiah College and the State of Pennsylvania's in-plants just last week, and visited UT-Austin in July. These managers and directors all do a stellar job, and I join IPMA in saluting them.
The In-plant Printing and Mailing Association (IPMA) is thrilled to announce the winners of the 2020-2021 IPMA Awards. The goal of the IPMA Awards program is to identify IPMA member organizations that are excelling and prospering. There are five awards. Each is listed below with the 2020-2021 winner.

“The goal each year for the IPMA Awards is to reward those organizations that are excelling and prospering," noted IPMA Awards Committee Chair Ben Fowler, of Shelter Insurance. "This year’s award-winning opportunities were not only affected by a global pandemic, but also included entries spanning a two-year window. As judges, we were once again impressed and amazed by the accomplishments of our fellow in-plant printing and mailing organizations. Please join us in congratulating the winners in each category, but we look forward to properly recognizing each outstanding group at our next conference in 2022. See you all in Buffalo.”
