Karl Shone, Technical Development Manager at Brenntag UK was the worthy recipient of the prestigious Gerald Soane Award at the SIA Annual General Meeting on 11th October.
Awarded in recognition of services to the Association and the wider solvents industry relating to Health, Safety and the Environment, Karl receives the Award for a second time and is a result of his tireless commitment to the SIA Technical Committee and in particular his recent work in the development of the newly launched ‘Solvents and their Applications’ course.
Karl said, ‘It is an honour to receive the Gerald Soane award for the second time. Considering the relatively small size of the Association, we achieve a huge amount for our industry in striving for continuous improvement and Best Practice and to educate users in the safe and responsible use of our products. I am delighted for my work to be recognised, and thank the SIA Executive Committee.’
The SIA would like to congratulate Karl on this well-deserved achievement.
