Leveltek has been named a finalist in the Platts Global Metals Awards, an inaugural program recognizing exemplary industry leadership. The 2013 finalists were announced last week by program host Platts, the leading global energy, petrochemical and metal information provider.
“We congratulate each of the finalists for truly standing apart from an impressive list of nominees, and we look forward to announcing the winners of the first-ever Platts Global Metals Awards at a special dinner gala in May,” said Larry Neal, president of Platts.
Leveltek was nominated in the “Innovative Technology of the Year” category, which recognizes exemplary performance in laser-quality metals processing machinery and technology.
The Platts Global Metals Awards highlight corporate and individual innovation, leadership and superior performance in categories spanning the entire steel, metal and mining complex. The new awards program is modeled after the highly successful Platts Global Energy Awards, established in 1999 and often described as “the Oscars of the energy industry.”
Bob Sipp, Director of Sales and Marketing at Leveltek, is pleased to be considered for the award. “We are the only process machinery company in the finals for the 2013 Platts Global Metals Awards, and we’re very honored to be included” he said.
Some 200 industry executives are expected to attend the May 23 black-tie dinner in London, where Platts will present its 2013 Global Metals Awards. This year’s awards dinner will be held in conjunction with the Platts European Steel Summit, May 22-24.
