Steve Irwin as Chairman of the EICF presented this award to Dr. Ford at the Institute of Cast Metals Engineers’ (ICME’s) annual awards luncheon.
In his own words Steve said :
“As I said to David at the award luncheon, it was both an honour and a privilege to join so many esteemed colleagues from the world of casting in celebrating and recognising David’s huge contribution to both the EICF and the wider investment casting community”.
In a thank you letter penned to both John Townsend (President of the ICME) and the General Council of the ICME, David thanked the ICME for honouring him with the award, commenting that ‘… awards given by one’s colleagues are always the most precious’.
In due course, an ICME Awards article will appear in the Foundry Trade Journal.
We are sure that all the community of the EICF and the Investment Casters in general shall be joining the EICF Chairman, congratulating David on this well-deserved achievement.
