The TAM Service Award
It is the purpose of the TAM Service Award award to recognize and honor an outstanding individual who, as a supplier to the printing ink industry, has played a major role in the progress of printing ink technology.
Printing ink manufacturers, with the help of their suppliers, transform chemical raw materials into useful industrial end-products vital to the existence of the graphic arts. This complex conversion requires a high order of scientific competence achieved through research and development. New applications of raw materials, new methods of production and new achievements in performance and service to the users (made possible by the dedicated service of the supplier industry’s technical personnel) have all contributed to the vitality of the ink industry today.
The Technical Achievement Award
Technical achievement in the form of research, development or other technology is one of the characteristics sought in determining eligibility. Candidates also may have contributed outstanding service to the printing ink industry in management, marketing, public relations, and government affairs. Nominations are solicited from members of both the ink and raw materials industries and the final selection will be made by a committee composed of individuals from both TAM and Active Member companies.
The Technical Achievement award is awarded for making contributions to the science of printing ink formulation, manufacture or application.
