Peleman Awards

Peleman Identified New Consumer Oriented Trends

In 2005, Peleman Industries identified a new trend in the market – photo books for consumers. Targeting this new market was a big change for the company, which traditionally had a B-to-B focus. The addition of the consumer oriented Unibind PhotoBook Creator to Peleman’s product line transformed the company into a more diversified business by giving it a retail presence. Today, PhotoBook Creator is available in retail and office supply chains nationwide, as well as in six continents and more than 100 countries.
