In January 2010 ownership changed, the new business was to become a WBENC company. As such, total financial responsibility fell on me. As the owner, I have implemented Open Book Management, which is a management style that engages employees and encourages them to think like owners. This allowed ATL an opportunity to go where no label company has gone before.
Since February 2010, Argent Tape and Label has continued to increase sales. Sales in 2011 broke the $2M mark and then exceeded the $3M mark in 2012. Keeping with the trend, we topped the $4M mark in 2013, 2014, 2015, $5.4M for 2016, $6M for 2017 and a goal of $7M in 2018. Under my leadership, corporate restructuring has resulted in a demonstration of our team’s core competencies and resulted in mutual trust between Argent and its customer’s. Employees have contributed to process efficiencies enabling a cost competitive advantage resulting in increased sales.
In addition to being a certified WBENC, we are also a certified WOSB. ATL has won many awards including Top 50 Companies to watch in Michigan, the All Star Award from the Great Game of Business, The Top Achiever Award from CEED and we have been currently named as a finalist for the Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year. Our Team is living up to our Mission Statement: “To Go Where No Label Company Has Gone Before”.
