A WHMA Hall of Fame and a WHMA Volunteer Excellence Award were presented at WHMA’s 30th Annual Wire Harness Conference on February 16.

This WHMA Hall of Fame Award recognizes extraordinary contributions with broad significance to the cable and wire harness industry and distinguished service to WHMA. Award recipients support the advancement of industry, consistent with the goals and mission of WHMA. This is the highest level of recognition WHMA can give to a member and is based on exceptional merit over the long term.

He is truly a champion of our industry.”

The WHMA Volunteer Excellence Award honors individuals from WHMA-member companies who have demonstrated ongoing leadership in WHMA activities and have contributed significant time and talent to the association and the cable and wire harness industry.
