Here’s your chance to see how your in-plant’s future compares to others. IPMA has contracted Cholmonco to perform a study on where in-plants are headed over the next five years in terms of growth, services and technology along with what they are doing to make it happen.
The study results will be presented at PRINT in Chicago on Sunday, September 10, at 2:00 pm and all complete survey respondents will receive a PDF copy of the final report.
This is a great way to validate and, perhaps, adjust your 5-year strategic plan with industry data. Don’t have a strategic plan for your shop? This could provide the basis for creating one and initiating conversations with your management.
Take it today, before the survey closes and have your voice heard.

Look at some of the top fiscal year 2018 challenges and corporate directions Kyocera executives were discussing:
