ACCO Brands Takes Top Award for GBC AccuCut® & ClassicCut® at Paperworld '06 Ceremony

ACCO Brands Corporation one of the world leaders in branded office products, with annual revenues of nearly $2 billion, took the prestigious 'Product Launch' Award at the 2006 OPI Industry Awards ceremony held at the PaperWorld Exhibition in Frankfurt, Germany.

The award for the Product Launch Category is perceived to be one of the most coveted and difficult to win because it covers not just the level of product innovation or range breadth itself but the whole launch process and the positive effect on the entire global OP industry.

Janne Hansen, the ACCO Brands Category Manager responsible for many of the Product initiatives that brought the two new brands to the attention of the industry commented as follows, "....to be able to come into a new product category with a range of such innovative products; catch the attention of the entire industry; and then deliver the product to the appropriate industry logistics and quality standards is a great achievement. The award is a testimony to the entire team: sales; product engineers; marketing communications; logistics and of course, our customers in having faith in us and our products."

Brian Dent, Vice President of Workspace Tools Europe, the ACCO Business Unit that includes the Trimmer & Guillotine Category added as follows, "...it's great to receive the acknowledgement of the industry in this way, however, even more important is the phenomenal sales success of this new range. We have taken significant market share in 2005 and this will continue to grow rapidly in 2006."
