Caleffi’s Bob “Hot Rod” Rohr has been awarded the 2020-2022 Carlson-Holohan Industry Award of Excellence.

Rohr was presented with the award on Feb. 4 during a Radiant Professionals Alliance (RPA) event in Orlando, Fla. Robert Bean, Mark Eatherton, John Goshulak, Dan Holohan, Ingrid Mattsson, John Siegenthaler and David Yates, prior honorees and inductees, were on present to recognize Rohr, who is the eighth recipient of the award.

In the spirit of Gil Carlson and the vision of Dan Holohan the award was conceived in 2006.  Every two years an individual from the United States or Canada who have demonstrated their passion for hydronic technologies manifested through education, marketing and philanthropy is selected by the inductees and presented with a replica of a Bell & Gossett System Syzer wheel invented by Carlson.  The unique circular slide rule calculates the relationship between flow rate, temperature change and heat transfer rate.

“I’ve known Bob ‘Hot Rod’ Rohr for 24 years,” John Siegenthaler said, “He’s always been a consummate learner and a true craftsman. As a hydronics artisan, Bob has created unique solutions with outside the box thinking. As a trainer he has given back to the industry many times over. A humble man who’s always willing to help others. Bob is very much admired throughout the North American hydronics industry.”

Rohr currently serves as Caleffi’s training and education manager. His expertise has taken him across the continent,  sharing his 30+ years’ of experience as a plumbing, radiant heat and renewable energy contractor.
