2015 Hall of Fame Inductees
Electroplating legends William Blum, Henry Brown, Michael Faraday, Richard Hull and Oliver Watts have been selected as the 2015 recipients for membership in the Electroplating Hall of Fame.
A committee of industry experts and veterans aided Products Finishing magazine in selecting the second class of honorees to be picked for the Electroplating Hall of Fame.
More than 40 individuals were nominated by readers for selection. The committee then reviewed the nominations and voted on the top five individuals for the honor.
The 2015 class joins current members Luigi Brugnatelli (1761-1818), Colin Fink (1881-1953), Lubomyr Ramankiw (1931-), Kevie Schwartz (1902-1974) and John Wright (1808-1844), all of whom were named to the inaugural class by Products Finishing magazine in 2014.
Nominations for the 2016 class will begin this fall. The selection will then take place by a vote of the industry committee and the inductees will be announced next Spring. Visit pfonline.com for more information about the nomination process and past winners.
The 2015 selection committee members were James Abbott, Dave Anzures, Richard Crain, Brad Durkin, Jim Jones, Richard Leopold, James Lindsay, Dave Marsh, Jerry Poll, William Saas, William Rosenberg and Erik Weyls.
