The Joe Metzger Award for Innovation


Joe MetzgerThe Joe Metzger Award for Innovation has been established by The University of Toledo, to honor a man who had innovation in his blood.

Joe started his career at his father's type house as a delivery driver. Over the years, he worked his way up through the management team, and eventually took over the family business with his brother Tom in 1996. Joe knew that innovation was the key to the success of the printing industry and this company, and it drove every business decision he made.

Under Joe's guidance, we pioneered new processes, invested in the latest printing machines, and implemented technology to reduce our environmental footprint.

Joe's passion and vision earned him a spot on printing's Top 400 in 2008, and in 2010 he was inducted into the Printing Industries of America Hall of Fame in 2010.

The Joe Metzger Award for Innovation will be given annually to a person or team involved with a project that showcases ingenuity, is relevant to this day and age, and embraces the spirit of partnership. Nominations are now being accepted and must be received by January 5, 2015.
