IACMI wins national “Organizational Excellence Award”

The Society for the Advancement of Materials and Process Engineering (SAMPE) North America has announced that Knoxville-based IACMI – The Composites Institute is a winner of the organization’s “2021 Organizational Excellence Award.”

The recognition is presented to organizations from industry, academia, and/or government that exemplify the best of SAMPE from within the advanced materials and process community as a whole. Founded in 2015, IACMI has built a strong collaborative ecosystem across the composites community, managing more than 50 collaborative and industry-led technical projects and commercializing more than 15 new products.

“This is a fantastic recognition as IACMI continues its evolution and creates innovation and workforce impact for its member community and the broader U.S. composites manufacturing markets,” said John A. Hopkins, IACMI Chief Executive Officer.

SAMPE will present the awards at “CAMX – The Composites and Advanced Materials Expo” 2021 in Dallas in October.
