PEIAC Chairman receives lifetime achievement
Professor Tan Junqiao is instrumental in promoting and introducing flexo in China

Founder and honourary chairman of the China Label Sub Association of the Printing and Printing Equipment Industries Association of China (PEIAC) Professor Tan Junqiao has been given the R. Stanton Avery Lifetime Achievement award.

He will be presented with the honour at the 2017 Label Industry Global Awards in Brussels on September 25.

Sponsored by Avery Dennison, the R. Stanton Avery Lifetime Achievement Award is bestowed upon an individual who has made a substantial and key contribution to the promotion and growth of the label industry over a minimum of 25 years.

Professor Tan, the first Chinese winner of this prestigious award, is highly regarded and respected as the true founder and motivator of China's label and packaging printing industries, having spent 36 years in both starting and helping build the country's industry from ground zero to the present day - initializing the industry's development, promoting China's printing technology innovations, defining production standards, organizing and participating in events, improving government policies and in enterprise development.

Instrumental in promoting and introducing flexo printing into China, which involved convincing government agencies to reduce import taxes on flexo presses and, more recently, digital presses, Professor Tan has also provided valuable consulting advice to many global label converter and supplier companies entering China, helping them to define business development strategies, establish manufacturing locations and set-up subsidiaries or joint ventures.

Mike Fairley, chair of the judges says, "Professor Tan was the stand-out choice for this year's Lifetime Achievement Award, with multiple recommendations from around the world. His passion and dedication over many years to promoting the development of a modern label printing industry in his country have led to him being widely acclaimed as the true pioneer and founding father of the Chinese label industry. We look forward to honouring Professor Tan and the other winners in person at the awards ceremony in September."
