Our Company’s Awards and Certifications

There’s talk in the wind these days about an upswing in American manufacturing. While the economy has been slip-sliding back and forth between recovery and recession for many months now, a solid piece of good news has been in American factory output and employment figures. Orders are, by and large, picking up in most industries. Part of this trend can be attributed to American companies “in-sourcing” manufacturing jobs back to the States from abroad, on account of supply chains becoming too lengthy, and – to be sure – the overall superior quality and craftsmanship that are still available only in a place like North America.

Here in Wisconsin, where our export economy is fueled primarily by agriculture and manufactured goods, we can safely state that we at TLP are at the forefront and helm of this manufacturing resurgence, and that is has everything to do with the quality we bring to the table, whatever the assignment requested. Our list of awards is extensive, to say the least: we’ve been listed as one of the “Best Places to Work in Southeastern Wisconsin” by both Milwaukee Magazine and the Management Resource Association. We’ve been awarded the Wisconsin Manufacturer of the Year. To cap it all off, we were designated no less than “The Best Workplace in the Americas” from the Printing Industries of America / Graphic Arts Technical Foundation.

But beyond our ribbons and medals, there comes the sheer extensiveness of our certifications. We proudly carry ISO-9001 and TS16949 certifications that reflect our ability to engineer and manufacture any form of custom-made UL label, CSA label, warning label, digital label, or die-cut adhesive application you might care to name. As the century progresses, we look forward to continuing our work in cutting-edge arenas such as automotive, aerospace, appliances, and power plants; as well as introducing ourselves and our high standards to other industries. Even as the overall American and global economy totters towards an eventual recovery, our company is roaring ahead into a promising future.

Whatever the Challenge Is – We Accept

One doesn’t get rated consistently among the top 10 businesses in Southeastern Wisconsin without thriving on challenge. In a global industry oversaturated by companies who perform the very same manufacturing services (and indeed, oftentimes perform them well), it is absolutely crucial that one be able to distinguish one’s products and services over one’s competitors, and that’s just what we’ve done here at TLP. Other labeling companies will simply manufacture labels for various industries: North America contains approximately 300 such companies. Fine and good… but when all is set and settled, the level of engineering-rich intelligence we possess at TLP positions us high above any other competitor – and that’s not any overstatement.

Our customers see us as a think-tank as much as a manufacturer. Having as many engineers on staff as we do lets us delve into the details of an assignment like no other North American label-maker is capable of. The results speak for themselves: we don’t lose customers. While it may be the case that particular products come and go (on account of the product growing obsolete, for example), our customers have always been satisfied with the thoroughness and swiftness by which we fulfill their immediate needs. We build products and solutions that stay their course. All of this can be attributed directly to our intelligent engineering approach to labeling.

In fact, we see ourselves somewhat as a life insurance provider for our customers. Clients in automotive, aerospace, appliances, industrial equipment, and other fields seem to concur that the skill-set we bring to each assignment constitutes a guarantee – an annuity if you will – that the solution we come up with will be definitive, innovative, and long-lasting.
