ATAS International Inc., Allentown, Pa., President Dick Bus was granted the Larry A. Swaney Award and ATAS Vice President of Sales Jim Bush was bestowed the Patrick R. Bush Service Award by the Metal Construction Association at its Annual Meeting in San Diego from Jan. 23-25.
“I have always believed in supporting the growth of the metal construction industry through the work of the MCA and its affiliated groups,” Bus said. “I am honored to have been recognized with Jim by our colleagues and friends within the industry.”
The eighth annual Larry A. Swaney Award originated in 2002 to honor a person who has worked unselfishly for the success of the MCA and the betterment of the metal construction industry. The award is named after Larry A. Swaney, an association founder and the founding president.
The first Patrick R. Bush Service Award was established to honor Pat Bush, longtime MCA board member and past Larry A. Swaney Award winner, who passed away suddenly in 2010. This award recognizes an individual who has recently made significant volunteer contributions to the MCA.
