The Wood Machinery Manufacturers of America presented its highest honor, the Ralph B. Baldwin Award, to past president Jamison Scott.
Scott is executive vice president of Air Handling Systems in Woodbridge, Conn.
“As a fierce advocate for Connecticut industry, Scott is in constant communication with elected representatives on behalf of Air Handling Systems and manufacturers across the state of Connecticut and the nation,” the WMMA said in a statement. “Currently Scott is working on a federal bill he helped co-create and name called the Manufacturing Reinvestment Account which resembles an IRA for manufacturers. In addition he has presented numerous combustible dust seminars throughout North America including trade fairs and conferences such as AWFS, IWF, WMS, NWFA and regularly acts as a technical resource.
“Within WMMA, Scott has long been an active volunteer, serving in multiple roles including Membership Development Committee, Public Policy Committee, various task forces and ultimately on the board of directors, were he eventually became a member of the Executive Committee, then treasurer, vice president and eventually president. He is currently the association's immediate past president.”
The Baldwin Award is named for Ralph B. Baldwin, longtime member and past president of WMMA.
