NORCROSS, GA. — Bill Holyoak will retire from T-Drill Industries at year’s end after 24 years as the company’s president. Holyoak joined T-Drill when it was reorganized in 1981, and he oversaw its growth in the tube and pipe industry.
Holyoak belonged to a number of industry trade associations, serving on various committees as well as speaking at their technical seminars, publishing technical papers and writing more than 15 published articles. Over the years he was a director of T-Drill, and he served a term as president of the Finnish American Chamber of Commerce, still serving as one of its directors. In the late 1990s Holyoak chaired an ASTM subcommittee, which wrote and passed new standards for branching and flanging.
He will be succeeded by Jim Peters as president and Mark Sanders as vice president/sales, both of whom have been with T-Drill for more than 15 years.
