AMCA’s mission is to promote the health, growth, and integrity of the industry, consistent with the public interest. AMCA International is a valuable resource and a strong means of self-regulation for the air moving industry.

He was the champion of the design concept for the one-piece solid fiberglass wheel and was the principal author of the company’s most recent patent, which reduced the sound levels on its adjustable pitch low-pressure prop.
“Tom has served a leadership role at Hartzell for a number of years,” said Sean Steimle, Hartzell president. “His industry knowledge and reputation will be a tremendous asset to the AMCA International Board and the industrial air moving industry.”
