St. Charles manufacturer Warwick Publishing earns distinguished industry award

Warwick Publishing in St. Charles has been named to the PPAI 100 list for 2024.

Extensively researched and objectively scored, PPAI 100 is the highest recognition Promotional Products Association International bestows on its members. The prestigious list ranks 100 exemplary distributors and 100 exemplary suppliers in the promotional products industry.

The PPAI 100 ranking, and our place on it, is based on several factors. Revenue is a key facet of the scoring, but other aspects of organizational excellence are also considered, including business growth over time, corporate social responsibility, technology practices, the strength of firms’ work forces, employee happiness, industry faith, and beyond.

“The companies that have earned PPAI 100 are trailblazers. And not just for our industry,” said Josh Ellis, PPAI Media’s publisher and editor-in-chief. “They represent the state-of-the-art in business leadership, practices and philosophy. PPAI 100 is a holistic approach to viewing business performance — the companies it elevates earned their ranking through careful consideration of every aspect of their organization — and represents true leadership. PPAI is proud of all of the companies recognized and of what they say about our industry.”

“We’re honored to be recognized in the PPAI 100 this year,” said Alex Paschal, president and fifth-generation co-owner of Warwick. “We’re proud of the efforts by our team that have landed us among 99 other highly revered promotional products suppliers, and we’re even more motivated now to continue to prove that we deserve this recognition as we look toward the future.”

“Being recognized in the PPAI 100 reinforces to us that our changes over the past three years have us headed in a positive direction,” Paschal said, “and more importantly, gives our entire team something tangible to hang their hat on. We’re thrilled to have something palpable to bring back to our team as indisputable proof that their efforts have not gone unnoticed.”
