Hub Labels, Inc. Wins Three Awards at Annual TLMI Competition  

Hub Labels, a custom manufacturer of pressure sensitive labels in Hagerstown, Maryland was recently presented with three awards from The Annual TLMI Competition held in Scottsdale, AZ. Hub Labels was recognized with the 2017 Environmental Leadership Award and two digital print awards.

The 2017 Environmental Leadership Award recognizes both a converter and a supplier member each year that consistently demonstrates a commitment to progressive environmental practices across a range of areas. These areas include solid waste reduction, recycling, waste or energy recovery, the implementation of new ‘clean’ technology and/or processes, and the implementation of an education program.
Hub Labels became Project L.I.F.E. certified in 2012 through TLMI and have been committed to finding cost effective ways to help reduce their environmental footprint since. As a result of the certification process, Hub Labels created a Project L.I.F.E. team that is charged with managing as well as implementing environmental projects and efforts. Hub Labels has since effectively targeted and reduced waste, water usage and vehicle gas emissions.

Hub Labels utilizes every employee in the organization to help work towards a more sustainable environmentally friendly company. Through Project L.I.F.E. and LEAN Manufacturing practices they strive to be an environmentally-friendly leader in the industry. They do this by believing that “We Think Differently” is more than just a motto, it is a way of life that their employees are committed to everyday.
In addition, to winning the Environmental Leadership Award at the 2017 TLMI Annual Meeting, Hub Labels was also presented with two label awards. They received a 1st place award in the Wine and Spirits category for Digital Printing/Ink Jet. The second award was 1st place in Digital Printing/Ink Jet – Color Process Prime. Both of these awards aim to recognize innovative printing and technical achievement. The competition recognizes and honors the finest efforts of their converter members throughout the previous 12-month period. ‘As an active leader in the industry, we are very excited to be recognized for our printing capabilities,’ said Thomas Dahbura, President of Hub Labels. ‘I am extremely proud of how well our team works together to produce our high-quality products, we wouldn’t be where we are today without each of our dedicated team members.

PVA Bike Camp Day

Paralyzed Veterans Of America – Mountain Bike Camp Day 2

8/21/17 – Day 2

Monday was about getting our equipment fitted out for the athletes and getting acclimated. We started with basic skills and they learned how to maneuver their wheels over various obstacles.

Each athlete had different types of trikes as you will be able to tell from the video and each one came with their own challenges.

 The day was interrupted to watch the eclipse and gave us a chance to take a short break.

 After lunch we ventured out for some riding around the town loop which got all the fellas out into the hills and gave us an opportunity to see the amazing vistas and challenge ourselves on the trail.

The trail had its challenges but the most challenging was the lack of oxygen! No injuries despite a couple of crashes so the day was a success.

As I get to know everyone I am inspired by their positive attitude and GRIT!

PVA Bike Camp Day

Paralyzed Veterans of America – Mountain Bike Camp Day 1

8/20/17 – Day 1

The day started with a 3am wake up call. All packed and ready to go headed out the door at 4am BWI-DFW first leg.
DFW-flight was on time and off to Montrie to meet Jody Shifler-the event organizer, Mark and Linda Power along with Luke and Brianna from the Adaptive Sports Center http://www.adaptivesports.org
Off to Crested Butte 2 hour drive.
Arrived Crested Butte and all is well. Met all the athletes and got briefed by the ASC staff about the exciting week to come finished off with Pizza and water.
Crested Butte is at 8880 feet. Nothing to mess with so water and NO booze. Skiing is one thing but mountain biking at this altitude should be exciting. The highlight of the briefing was finding out that one of the rides is a 2-1/2 mile hill climb and 1,000 feet of climbing. That will be a record for me and at this altitude should be interesting.
Monday is planned to get our bikes checked out and out for an easy 10 mile ride in the low country. Low country is above 9,000 feet. Ill be working on getting used to using the go pros and adding footage to my diary.
