Milwaukee, Wisconsin — After a year-long delay, the ninth recipient of the Carlson-Holohan Industry Award of Excellence will be revealed at this year’s AHR Expo in Atlanta, Georgia.
The award is given out by Caleffi North America which is hosting a formal award presentation and cocktail reception at its AHR Expo booth on Feb. 6 at 3 p.m. (EST). It is presented every two years to a nominee with attributes including “technical mastery and a passion for hydronics technologies, demonstrated leadership as an educator and mentor, and an aptitude for cultivating fundraising opportunities for industry causes,” according to Caleffi.
To be eligible, a candidate must be over the age of 40 and a citizen of the United States or Canada. Prior recipients include David Yates, Mark Eatherton, Kenneth Webster, John Barba, John Siegenthaler, John Goshulak, Ingrid Mattsson and most recently Bob “Hot Rod” Rohr.
In the tradition of the award, Rohr will present a replica of a Bell & Gossett System Syzer wheel, invented by Gil Carlson to the next honoree.
“It has been an honour to be the keeper of this industry award, paying it forward to the next generation of hydronic designers, suppliers, installers and troubleshooters. Long may you pump away,” states Rohr, training and education manager at Caleffi.
