Postmaster General Presents Award to Penn State's In-plant
Two weeks ago at the 2017 National Postal Forum in Baltimore, U.S. Postmaster General Megan Brennan presented Penn State's Multimedia and Print Center with the Mailing Innovation and Digital Award for the Eastern Area. Penn State's Abbas Badani and Bob Eichman accepted the award on behalf of the 55-employee in-plant.
The print and mail operation was honored for its efforts to add value by automating the fulfillment of new student acceptance packets using its new Neopost DS-200 folder/inserter, as detailed in IPG's March cover story.
“This award was unexpected, and it’s an honor that all of us in MPC are proud of,” says Director Abbas Badani.
Badani persuaded the Office of Admissions that the automated process would save the school money, as well as decrease the cycle time for offers to reach students. This has proven to be the case.
“This is a wonderful recognition of the MPC's work and creativity in support of Penn State,” said David Gray, senior VP for Finance and Business/treasurer at Penn State.
