This past month has witnessed a number of changes to CSPI’s Board and Executive Committees.  We are sad to say goodbye to our Past President Kenzie MacPherson, formerly of Atlantic Industries, and to Allan and Betty Hubbell of ES Hubbell, and Guy Gelinas from ArcelorMittall, and Mike Mounts from DOW Chemical. 

On behalf of the CSPI, I would like to thank Kenzie, Allan, Betty, Guy and Mike for all their contributions over the years to our industry.  Corrugated Steel Pipe in Canada has been around for well over 100 years and members are the backbone to the innovation and drive of product and material improvements.  Best wishes to you all.

We welcome Stephen MacKinnon from Atlantic Industries, Chris Groot from ES Hubbell, John Tran from ArcelorMittall and Fabio Camachio from DOW Chemical who will be joining the board for the 2014 / 2015 terms.  We look forward to working with each of you.

We are happy to announce that, this November, Leland Industries joined the CSPI as an Associate Member. Leland Industries Inc., founded in 1984, is a rapidly expanding manufacturer of fasteners, serving manufacturers, industry, and construction, internationally. They take great pride in being a North American company – and in using North American steel – and compete successfully against offshore competitors in international markets.  We welcome Byron Nelson and his team and look forward to working with them.

Also, we say goodbye and thank you to Wade Abbott of Atlantic Industries who has been a member of the Product and Promotion Committee for a number of years.  Wade retired in November, and we wish him well in his future endeavours.
