CCAI names lifetime achievement award winner

Powder coating specialist Bill Oney has received the Chemical Coaters Association International (CCAI)’s lifetime achievement award.

The James F & David J Wright Lifetime Achievement Award is given to members that have dedi-cated years of service to the association and the industrial finishing industry, the CCAI said.

Oney retired from Therma-Tron-X Inc, a manufacturer of automated finishing systems, in Octo-ber 2021 and has been a CCAI member for the past 23 years. He has been a contributor to CCAI’s powder coating and system design training manuals and shared his expertise at many technical and educational events throughout the years.

"Of all the organizations I have belonged to over the years, CCAI is the most rewarding in that our mission is to give back to our industry by providing educational opportunities and great net-working,” said Oney.
