Hot Dip Galvanizing



Galvan's David Prior Retires

David Prior, Hot Dip Galvanizing Technical Services Manager at Galvan Industries, retired July 31 after nearly 29 years with the company.

David's career was one of leadership in the industry. Before joining Galvan in 1986, he was employed as Engineering Manager for the American Galvanizers Association (AGA) in the Eastern U.S. He has served as a member of the Board of Directors of the AGA, and Chairman of the association's Market Development Committee and Co-Chairman of the Technical Services Committee.

Additionally, he is a member of the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) and the National Academy of Science committees on corrosion. He is a member of the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI), National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE) and the Society for Protective Coatings (SSPC). He has authored numerous papers and articles dealing with protective coatings and is a regular speaker at professional society meetings and architectural and engineering firms for in-house continuing education programs.

During his years at Galvan, David helped grow the company's business to record levels and oversaw several expansions while maintaining the highest quality standards, earning repeated industry recognition for excellence and the 2012 AGA Lifetime Achievement Award.

David was honored earlier this year with AGA's prestigious Daniel M. Hubbell Memorial Award for 2015, recognizing outstanding service to the industry.
