The European galvanizing industry has acknowledged the outstanding contribution of two people to the activities of the industry’s European organisation. The prestigious EGGA Pin was awarded to Holger Glinde (Germany) and Lello Pernice (Italy) during the European General Galvanizers Association’s Assembly 2019 recently held in Antwerp.
When presenting these awards, EGGA President, Martin Kopf, emphasised the continued importance of individual personal commitments and capability to successful European collaboration within the industry.
Holger Glinde (Marketing Manager at the Industrieverband Feuerverzinken, Germany) recently stepped down as Chair of the EGGA Marketing Committee after 6 years during which he brought new ideas and a focus on some important market segments such as bridges and facades.
Lello Pernice (Technical Manager at Associazione Italiana Zincatura, Italy) finished a period of 8 years chairmanship of the EGGA Technical & Research Committee in 2018. He has played a leadership role in EGGA’s technical work – in particular, in standardisation where his expertise has been valuable in the development of international and European standards.
The awards were made at the Assembly 2019 dinner, attended by over 200 guests, at the Horta Café in Antwerp – an iconic piece of Art Nouveau architecture and a fitting location for an industry so closely linked to architecture and construction.
