The Power Transmission Distributors Association (PTDA) has named Kevin McCloskey, category manager at Kaman Industrial Technologies Corporation, the 24th recipient of its Warren Pike Award for lifetime achievement in the power transmission/motion control (PT/MC) industry.
McCloskey received the award, named for PTDA’s co-founder and first president, at the association’s Industry Summit in Orlando, FL. The award was established in 1984 to honor individuals who have demonstrated outstanding, continuous, long-term support of PTDA and the PT/MC industry.
McCloskey has been and still is very involved with PTDA. He has served on numerous committees and task forces and is currently a member of the Research & Innovation Committee. McCloskey also served on the Board of Directors from 1996-2002 and as the board president in 2001.
“Professionally, Kevin is always willing to give of himself, his time and his expertise to PTDA and to the industry as a whole,” said Doug Savage, president of Bearing Service Inc.
“Kevin has been a great partner through the years for Dodge,” added Jeff Moore, vice president of marketing and mechanical power transmission for Baldor Electric Company. “He collaborates well with our whole organization and works to achieve not only the best solution for Kaman, but also for the manufacturer as well. The thing I appreciate about Kevin is his transparency. If he doesn’t like something he will tell you. It’s easy to have a trusting relationship when you can have frank conversations with a channel partner and Kevin has always been one of a handful of people who will roll up his sleeves and work to achieve a mutually beneficial result.”
