IWCO Direct, a leading national provider of direct marketing solutions, has recently been recognized for the company’s Safety and Technical Excellence achievements by two leading industry organizations.
A 2011 Industry Safety Leader Award was presented to IWCO Direct on April 21 at the Envelope Manufacturers Association (EMA) Spring Meeting in Scottsdale, Ariz. This is the sixth consecutive year IWCO Direct has been recognized for its commitment to safety by the association.
On April 18, IWCO Direct was recognized with the MAILCOM Technical Excellence Award at the 2012 MAILCOM Conference in Washington, D.C. The award was based on IWCO Direct’s commitment to equipment standardization and employee training. IWCO Direct has installed complementary equipment across its national platform so work can easily be transitioned between IWCO Direct’s facilities in Minnesota and Pennsylvania. A process for transferring specialized equipment from plant-to-plant to complete specific projects was also developed. To make the company more efficient, IWCO Direct cross-trains employees on multiple pieces of equipment and conducts frequent performance reviews to ensure the training is effective and addresses any concerns as they arise.
