Digital annual report wins top international honors in Tokyo.

Rector Communication’s team won multiple awards at the 31st International ARC Awards competition for their work on the 2016 Quaker Chemical Corporation Annual Report. The report, themed Delivering Results in an Uncertain World, highlights how Quaker’s strategy is helping them thrive despite volatility in the global economy. The interactive won a gold Award and a silver was awarded to the print version.

The development of the report was a five-month process-starting with in-depth interviews of more than 30 global managers at Quaker to create an authentic brand message that would resonate with employees and shareholders alike.

Considered the “Oscars” of the worldwide corporate communications industry, the ARC Awards is the largest and most prestigious competition that honors outstanding achievement in annual reports. This report marks the 21st year of the Quaker/Rector collaboration.
