First American Selected for ARMA’s Industry Icon Award
Ferry Industries is pleased to announce that Ann Rowland has been selected as the 2019 recipient of the Association of Rotational Moulders Australasia (ARMA) Icons of Rotational Moulding Award. It was presented at the ROTOMOULD 2019 Conference in Brisbane, Australia in June of 2019. This is a distinctive honor that has only been given to 12 others in the rotational molding industry, and Rowland is the first American to receive this honor. The award is in recognition of the consistent dedication and extraordinary accomplishments of individuals who have contributed to the growth of the rotational molding industry.
