Agfa Graphics to be Honored at 17th Annual IPW Member President's Meetings at Graph Expo Independent Printers Worldwide, Inc. names Agfa Graphics Top Supplier of the Year; Steve Musselman named National Account Manager of the Year

Elmwood Park, NJ – Agfa Graphics is being honored as the Top Supplier of the Year for 2015 by Independent Printers Worldwide, Inc. The award will be presented at the 17th Annual IPW Member President’s Meetings on September 13th and 14th during Graph Expo 2015, being held at McCormick Place South in Chicago.

“IPW is proud to recognize Agfa Graphics as our selection of Top Supplier of the Year for 2015. Agfa has been a most worthy supplier partner for over seventeen years and has demonstrated the highest level of professionalism and service to our North American members throughout that span. The company’s leadership and unmatched support for IPW Platinum Elite in 2015 absolutely made Agfa Graphics the unanimous winner of our Top Supplier award,” said Dan Bendele, CEO, IPW.

Additionally, Agfa Graphics’ Steve Musselman is being honored by the IPW as National Account Manager of the Year.

“Amplifying the superior performance of Agfa is the steadfast professionalism of Steve Musselman, the National Account Manager of the Year. Steve’s overall excellence and tireless effort to our members make it an honor to march hand-in-hand with Steve and the Agfa Graphics team as we work to change the face of independent printing,” Bendele added.

Agfa Graphics and IPW have been partners since IPW began in 1998. Agfa Graphics is pleased to be recognized by IPW for its leadership role in support of the independent printer.

“Over the past five years, Agfa has grown market share of sites within the group that primarily use Agfa products through effective sales activity, and increased volume by 50% within a very challenging market contraction. Now, after 17 years together, Agfa and IPW have tightened their partnership to provide members aggressive program and production benefits which reflect the growth and buying power of the greater whole,” said Steve Musselman, Senior Corporate Account Executive, Agfa Graphics, North America. “In these challenging years, the independent printer continues to have a resource in the Agfa/IPW relationship which helps to position each participating member for success.”

The President’s Member Meetings include a brunch on Sunday, September 13th from 10:00 AM-12:00 noon and a breakfast on Monday, September 14th from 8:00 AM-10:00 AM. Both events are being held in the Adler Room at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place.
