Top 50 U. S. Government Printing Office Suppliers for 2008
The print suppliers who have been most successful in obtaining U. S. Government Printing Office (GPO) work during the Federal Fiscal Year 2008 have been announced by Government Print Management, the leading representative of print suppliers to government in the United States. Government Print Management is a division of Chambersburg, Pennsylvania-based-LYNXX Corporation (www.e-LYNXX.com).
“This is a much anticipated listing because it tells the industry who has won the most GPO work over the past year. Competition for this work is intense and on-going on a daily basis because it is lucrative and keeps many companies in business and profitable,” said Deborah Snider, senior vice president of Government Print Management. “Those that do the best have a full understanding of governmental practices, policies and procedures. Most work with a print management firm that specializes in the government print market.”
Of the more than 1,800 print suppliers who obtained GPO work during Fiscal Year 2008 (October 2007 through September 2008), Monarch Litho of Montebello, Calif., received the most work with $38 million awarded to them. The value of all GPO work awarded during this period was more than $421 million. Work done by the top 50 suppliers was valued at more than $287 million.
“Since 85 percent of the jobs that the GPO procures are for less than $3500, many suppliers find them to be ideal for filling what would otherwise be idle production time,” Snider said. “By filling downtime, printers that consistently win GPO jobs improve their annual income from about 3 percent to 14 percent, and sometimes more. The importance of securing GPO work has become even more significant as printers look for income opportunities during these difficult economic times.”
Snider said many of the top 50 GPO suppliers are clients of Government Print Management and benefit from the company’s government print management expertise and exclusive services. Following are the top 50 GPO suppliers for federal fiscal year 2008 and their earnings for the GPO projects. The list is compiled from data assembled by Government Print Management from its exclusive databases, and encompasses activity beginning October 1, 2007, and ending September 30, 2008:
