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 IATF/TS 16949 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.
