Printing ink giant Sun Chemical of Parsippany, New Jersey, announces that three of its employees were honored with awards during the National Association of Printing Ink Manufacturers’ (NAPIM) annual convention, including the Ault Award, considered the highest recognition in the North American printing ink industry.
Patrick Carlisle, the founder of Joules Angstrom U.V. Printing Inks Corp., which was acquired by Sun Chemical in 2017, received the prestigious Ault Award, a recognition that honors “outstanding individuals who have played major roles in the progress of the printing ink industry.”
Sun Chemical’s Juanita Parris, Ph.D., and Brian Chwierut were each presented with a Pioneer Award. Regarded as one of the most prestigious honors in the ink manufacturing ink industry, the Printing Ink Pioneer Award honors those who have given more than 20 years of service to the printing ink industry through their work with one or several printing ink companies or suppliers, in addition to service work with ink associations, production clubs and other committees. NAPIM also considers technical contributions in the areas of laboratory, engineering, production or product development.
“Sun Chemical is proud to have employees who are committed to innovation and raising the standard for the printing inks marketplace,” says Russell Schwartz, chief technology officer for Sun Chemical. “We’re thrilled that NAPIM has recognized Pat, Juanita and Brian for their well-deserved achievements and long-term commitment to the printing ink industry.”
