Howard A Kuhn receives America Makes Distinguished Collaborator Award

October 8, 2014

America Makes, the US National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute, driven by the National Center for Defense Manufacturing and Machining (NCDMM), has announced that it honoured Howard A Kuhn, Ph.D., P.E. with the inaugural presentation of the America Makes Distinguished Collaborator Award, for his dedication and contributions to the Institute. This announcement came during the America Makes Program Management Review (PMR) Meeting held at the DeYor Performing Arts Center in Youngstown, Ohio.

The America Makes Distinguished Collaborator Award was established this year to recognise an individual or organisation with exceptional commitment and dedication to advancing Additive Manufacturing technology, practices, and innovation in the manufacturing industry by building effective collaborative relationships with academia, government, and industry, and contributing to the mission of America Makes.

“On behalf of all of us at America Makes, I am honoured to present the inaugural America Makes Distinguished Collaborator Award to our long-time friend and esteemed colleague, Dr Howard Kuhn, in recognition of his many and significant contributions not only to America Makes, but also to the field of Additive Manufacturing and 3D printing,” stated America Makes Founding Director and NCDMM President and Executive Director Ralph Resnick. “Few people have Howard’s vision and ability to bring and inspire mutual efforts together to advance the technology. We are honoured to recognise his devotion and successful initiatives with the inaugural America Makes Distinguished Collaborator Award.”

“I’m very pleased to join Ralph in recognising Howard’s contributions and can think of no one more deserving of this inaugural award. Howard continues to set the standard for his collaboration within the America Makes community of members. We greatly appreciate his commitment to advancing additive manufacturing technology, practices, and innovation in the manufacturing industry and the mission of America Makes,” added Ed Morris, America Makes Director and NCDMM Vice President.
