Book Manufacturers’ Institute Announces 2022 Award Winners

The Book Manufacturers’ Institute (BMI) has announced recipients of the Master Bookman and Signature Award, as well as three new members to the Cased-in Club.

The honors, which will be presented Monday evening November 7th at the Awards Banquet at the Fall Annual Conference in St. Petersburg, Florida, recognize BMI members who not only contribute to the success of their organization, but also to the continued success of the book manufacturing industry.

Matt Baehr, Executive Director of BMI, said, “This group of award winners has truly shaped the book industry for decades. I am very excited to celebrate their accomplishments, and the book industry as a whole.”

The Distinguished Master Bookman Award, bestowed upon a BMI member who has made an extraordinary contribution to the book manufacturing industry throughout a long career, will be given to Ken Fultz, formerly of Bookmasters. Ken spent over 40 years in the book manufacturing and distribution industry, working at places like Mazer and Thompson-Shore. He served on the BMI Board for 6 years, and as our President in 2007. Besides the book industry, Ken has always been an active volunteer in church ministries.

The Signature Award, given to a BMI member who has made a valued contribution to the welfare of the industry and/or the Institute through the display of superior leadership qualities on an issue of particular concern to the industry or, for exhibiting such qualities over an extended period, will be given to Mark Levin of HP and Joe Upton of Gasch Printing.
