Nathan Rosen was honored as the recipient of the Ault Award for outstanding achievement and service to the printing ink industry by the National Association of Printing Ink Manufacturers (NAPIM).
Superior entered into an agreement with Allied Graphic Offset Supplies and Richard Shea as distributors of Superior Printing Inks in the state of Florida. Initially, the premises of Allied Offset in Hollywood, Florida were used as a warehouse. In 1973, the sales of ink generated by Dick Shea warranted the establishment of a branch operation. A 9000 sq. ft. building on a 1/2 acre of land in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, was purchased and converted to a manufacturing and service branch.
A branch was opened in a store on Main Street, Charlotte, North Carolina, which rapidly expanded to three stores. In a few more years it moved to a building on Rozzells Ferry Road. A 10,000 sq. ft. addition to this property was added in 1989, making it 20,000 square feet in total.
Superior started to use some space in Gotham’s Marlboro building for warehousing and distribution. An addition was subsequently made to this building to accommodate Superior’s growth. Eventually, even this proved to be inadequate. In 1985 Superior constructed a 25,000 sq. ft. building on Brigham Street.
