Dr. Steven Auvil of Air Products was joined by family, colleagues and the company’s chairman recently at a dinner honouring him as the recipient of the 2013 Chairman’s Award of Excellence.
Auvil received the award for his extraordinary work around Air Products’ core technologies - including membrane systems, adsorption systems and cryogenics - and key technologies in specialty materials.
In addition, his mentoring and leadership of the next generation Air Products technologists was also cited as a key contribution.
“Steve’s contributions to our bottom line, his work as an Air Products Fellow, his technical contributions and legacy, and his unyielding commitment to the career development of others make him an ideal recipient of this year’s Chairman’s Award,” said John McGlade, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Air Products.
The Chairman’s Award for Excellence was established in 1988 to honour significant contributions of employees towards the realisation of corporate goals. Winners are selected by the chairman based on nominations proposed by a committee comprised of senior company officials. Auvil received $75,000 in cash and company stock, and was presented with a sculpture symbolising the technology for air separation engraved with the Latin title “Caelum Aratro Findimus,” which translates as “To Cleave the Sky.”
Auvil recently retired from Air Products after more than 30 years with the company and lives in Macungie, Pennsylvania, with his wife, Jane.
Building on more than a decade of Sustainability reporting, Air Products has published its third consecutive Global Reporting Initiative Sustainability Report, highlighting performance and progress against its sustainability goals.
