December 21, 2023 | By HPAC Magazine
Hughes is the ninth recipient of the award which honours contributions to the field of hydronics in North America.
Dave Hughes, technical adviser with CIPH and past chair of the Canadian Hydronics Council, was honoured with the Carlson-Holohan Industry Award of Excellence on Feb. 6 during the AHR Expo in Atlanta.
A top honour in the field of hydronics in North America, the award is presented once every two years (last year was an exception) to an individual in Canada or the U.S. who has demonstrated a passion for hydronic technologies manifested through education, marketing and philanthropy.
The award was founded in 2006 by Dan Holohan and Robert Bean, and the winner is selected by the inductees and is presented with a replica of a Bell & Gossett System Syzer wheel which was invented by Gil Carlson.
