ROLLING MEADOWS, ILL. — Walter Strader, president of the Plumbing Manufacturers Institute, recently presented PMI’s inaugural President’s Award to member-volunteers Sally Remedios of Delta Faucet Co. and Shabbir Rawalpindiwala of the Kohler Co. during the group’s 2009 Spring Meeting, April 5-8, Asheville, N.C.
The two member-volunteers were recognized for their outstanding service to PMI, as well as their lifetime achievements within the plumbing industry. Remedios works as manager of product compliance for Delta, and Rawalpindiwala serves as manager of codes and standards at Kohler.
“The President’s Award is a first for PMI, designed to recognize exceptional service contributions by members to the organization,” said Strader. “We see the award as a great way to pay tribute to Sally and Shabbir for their dedicated, energetic support of PMI over many years, as well as the knowledge and insight they bring to our deliberations. We could not have chosen a more deserving pair of individuals to honor with this first-ever award.”
