So this week , I decided to gather together many of the various awards that lay around everywhere, and put them all together. The result is very impressive. So I am taking a moment to share a bit of this proud history of Lawson since 1949.
I found out that Co-Presidents, David and Ben Landesman have been heavily involved in the screen and imaging industry ever since they were boys. They used to work on Saturdays, school breaks and during the summers too. David said,
school breaks and during the summers too. David would say what could be more fun than building stuff? Why sit at home doing nothing all summer?
As young adults, David and Ben have served on numerous SGIA committees, participated in countless Association studies, spoke at many industry events and have been attending the SGIA convention since the early 60s, as young children. David currently serves on the SGIA Board of Directors.
The involvement David and Ben have had in the industry has made them the perfect duo for many industry awards (shown above). These include the Parmele Award, Magnus Award, Award of Excellence, The Fellows Award, Outstanding Service Award, and many others.
I was pleased to learn that Lawson has truly promoted forward thinking/printing technologies and processes while contributing to the Specialty Imaging industry overall growth. Perhaps the most important thing is that after decades of pioneering the automated press, developing energy-efficient drying systems, and delivering screen printing materials and supplies, they are still around to serve our longtime customers, and are stronger than ever.
As a new Associate, I quickly found that Lawson is a company of people who care, both about the staff and their customers! It is great to be part of the team.
