Guess who’s back from maternity leave? I hope everyone had a great summer—I sure did! I got to spend it with the newest addition to the Carr family, the most adorable baby boy in the world, Damian Richard. (Not that I’m biased or anything.) The plan was always to return to work, so I’m glad I didn’t miss our annual Top 50 Suppliers issue. Every year, I’m inspired by the people behind these print and promotional powerhouses. Their drive, creativity and passion for customer service is unparalleled. These companies are already finalizing their plans for 2019, which is shaping up to be something special. Here, in their own words, are what a few of them had to say about future goals:
“A primary goal for General Data in 2019 is to increase our distribution network throughout the USA. To accomplish this, we are increasing the scope and content of stock products in our distributor catalog.”

“As we continue to create value for our partners through the Power of Partnering program, we are developing educational content in each of our four categories. This will include technical knowledge, training and webinars. Understanding the functional and technical requirements of packaging, in addition to the application and current needs, will be the foundation for knowledge required to provide solutions.”
