The Association of Rotational Molders International has announced a dozen new members and is seeking nominations for two awards that will be presented at ARM's annual meeting and technical exhibits, scheduled for Oct. 3-5 in Cleveland.
The awards are the 2004 Charles D. Frederick Distinguished Service Award and the Organizational Service Award. The awards are in honor of ARM's executive director from 1986-2002.
The Distinguished Service Award goes to committee members and other volunteers who put in extraordinary efforts for ARM, which is based in Oak Brook. Last year's winners were James N. Moloy, major account manager for the Polyolefins Polymers Group at ExxonMobil Chemical Co. of Houston, and Einar Voldner, president of Synergy Polymers Inc. of Hornby, Ontario.
The Organizational Service Award honors ARM member companies for service to the trade association. ExxonMobil won the honor last year.
More than 400 attendees are expected at ARM's fall meeting in Cleveland. ARM will name 2004 inductees to the Rotational Molding Hall of Fame. Other awards include a parts competition.
