Newton Manufacturing Company accepted a Silver Pyramid Award at the Promotional Products Association’s Awards and Recognition program on Jan. 15, as part of the annual PPAI Expo in Las Vegas.

Newton Representative Sue Weibel and fine artist Steven Premo received the award for a campaign that they developed in collaboration with the casino’s marketing and graphics department. Dan Livengood, senior sales manager at Newton Manufacturing Company, authored the contest entry.

Weibel brought home a Silver Pyramid Award in a “new” Diversity category, which recognizes programs designed to recruit, retain and promote persons from various ethnic and cultural backgrounds, or programs to enhance employee sensitivity, knowledge and understanding of the various ethnicities and cultures with a company environment.

“I am impressed with how our top sales representatives like Sue implement such creative and successful campaigns such as this. And, to have them recognized with such an elite award in this particular category makes it all the more special.” said Mancil Laidig, Newton’s president.
