The prestigious ACRC Ray H. Witt Award is given every two years to those who exhibit leadership in the aluminum casting industry, who invest resources in its future, and educate and train new talent. At the 2015 ACRC June meeting, Jerry Kucharczyk will be honored posthumously. His family will be in attendance.
“Jerry was a great business leader, a wonderful colleague and most of all a very dear friend. In the short time he was with us he had a profound impact on our company and employees. He consistently set high standards for himself and the company and always delivered. While we miss him very much, we are committed to continue to build on his successes as we know he would expect nothing less,” commends Mark Osmanski President & Chief Executive Officer of ATEK Companies, Inc.
