Norwood & BIC Graphic Hosts BIC Group Board of Directors Meeting
Norwood & BIC Graphic North America, Clearwater, Fla., was honored to host a recent BIC Group Board of Directors Meeting April 23-25, 2013. The board meeting was held in Minneapolis, Minn. and included in-depth tours of the Norwood & BIC Graphic facilities in nearby Red Wing and Sleepy Eye.
The board is led by Bruno Bich, chairman, and Mario Guevara, CEO, and includes several Bich family members as well as high ranking executives of external companies. Traditionally, the BIC Group Board of Directors meets six times per year and from time to time includes a visit to a BIC operation.
On Wednesday, April 24, the board visited Norwood & BIC Graphic's publishing operation in Sleepy Eye, Minn. The site manufactures both custom and imprinted calendars, notebooks and journals as well as the line of BIC Sticky Notes.
The following day, the board toured the Hard Goods operation in Red Wing, where products such as bags, drinkware and awards are imprinted with over 20 different technologies, and the Norwood britePix innovation is based.
"We were very pleased to see the U.S. promotional products operations first hand," said Bruno Bich. "The complexity of the variety of technologies and products is truly impressive. The plants were well organized and the employees we met showed tremendous enthusiasm and pride."
"Our commitment to BIC APP and the industry remains strong," Bich continued. "We know that there have been service issues due to the recent reorganization and ERP implementation and we apologize for the inconvenience it created for our customers. However, I am confident we will prove ourselves again to be a top supplier with impeccable service."
