London, England and Warwick, New York (PRWEB) February 23, 2011
Guinness World Records Limited announced today that Impact Enterprises, Inc of Warwick, NY and Las Vegas, NV, has been awarded a certificate for the new Guinness World Records record for “Largest Ring Binder.”
The subject ring binder measured 113cm wide x 155cm high (approximately 44.5” wide x 61” high) in the closed position. Impact Enterprises, Inc. is the acknowledged international leader in custom binder cover, menu cover, presentation folder, portfolio, and other information packaging design and manufacturing.
“We have been serving our U.S. and International customers since 1987. Passion drives our innovation while service drives our business. We are challenged to meet the unique product design needs and objectives of our customers,” states Bobi Hamilton, President & CEO.
The ring binder is a functional binder that was manufactured for a customer required to present oversized technical drawings to the military. The binder was not manufactured to win a contest. A prototype was submitted to Impact’s customer for approval. The prototype was approved, and an order placed for several pieces. According to Ralph Salisbury of Impact Enterprises, the thought to submit these binder specifications to Guinness Book of World Records did not occur to him until almost four months after the binder order had been completed.
“I was reviewing first and second quarter orders for year 2010 when I came upon this order. I just wondered if anyone had ever manufactured a functional ring binder close to this size. After a few moments, Guinness Book of World Records came to mind, and I pursued it,” says Salisbury.
In order to comply with Guinness’s submission requirements, Impact Enterprises had a Notary Public present, a reporter from a local newspaper, a professional photographer, two industry professionals who could verify the functionality of the subject ring binder, a local real estate developer to take accurate measurements, and a representative from the office complex where the event occurred, all gather together on December 10, 2010 at 6550 S. Pecos Road, Las Vegas. The event was announced and open to the general public. In addition to the general public, in attendance were:
- Sara Elder, Notary Public for the State of Nevada - Notary
- Dana Anderson, Allen Photo Diversified – Professional Photographer
- Laura Emerson, Las Vegas Review-Journal – Reporter
