ESCSI Honors Its 2017 Holm Award Recipient
The Expanded Shale, Clay and Slate Institute honored its 2017 Holm Award recipient at the ESCSI Midyear Meeting held May 15-18, 2017 in Park City, Utah. Each year, ESCSI honors individuals and/or companies who have made significant contributions to the lightweight aggregate industry through their leadership and dedication. This year’s recipient, Michael Robinson, joins that distinguished list.
The Thomas A. Holm Award is presented each year to an individual employed in the industry who has contributed to research, development and use of expanded shale, clay and slate aggregate. Michael Robinson has spent his career making such contributions.
A long-time associate of the concrete and lightweight aggregate industries, Michael Robinson is currently the Territory Manager and Senior Technical Consultant at the Carolina Stalite Company. He actively participates and has served in leadership capacities in numerous industry-related groups including the Carolinas Chapter of the American Concrete Institute (ACI), the National Capital Chapter of ACI, ACI 213 Lightweight Aggregate and Concrete Committee and other ACI Technical Committees. Michael is a Fellow of the American Concrete Institute and the 2013 recipient of ACI’s Cedric Willson Award. He is also an ESCSI representative to the Masonry Alliance for Codes and Standards and the Alliance for Concrete Codes and Standards.
“Michael has tirelessly devoted his career to codes and standards which are the foundation upon which the construction industry is built,” said Bill Wolfe, Senior Engineer at Norlite, LLC. “His focus on ensuring that products manufactured with lightweight aggregate are accurately represented in the building codes has helped the industry grow in a very positive manner.”
