2019 James & David Wright Lifetime Achievement Award Winner

George Koch Sons, LLC is honored to announce that our VP of Sales, Sam Woehler was recently awarded the Chemical Coaters Association International (CCAI) 2019 James & David Wright Lifetime Achievement Award at the annual CCAI meeting in Hilton Head, SC.  Sam has provided several years of service to CCAI, contributing to the finishing industry through education, serving as an ambassador and going above and beyond for the local CCAI chapter.  Sam served as president and past president for the association and currently serves on the National Board of Directors.


CCAI created a Lifetime Achievement Award to honor members who have provided years of service to CCAI and the finishing industry as a whole.  The award is named for the late father and son, James F. Wright and David Wright, who were instrumental in building the association and very active and strong supporters of the organization.  Both James and David were instrumental in developing the Wisconsin Chapter and tirelessly volunteered to help this chapter succeed.  An award named after the Wright's is an appropriate way to remember their dedication, passion and contributions to the CCAI.
