Doug Trinowski Presents Hoyt Memorial Lecture

April 2017

MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin - (April 2017) - The American Foundry Society’s Hoyt Memorial Lecture was established in 1938 and has been a highlight of every AFS Metal Casting Congress since then. The chosen lecturer is selected for his/her contributions to the metal casting industry and this year HA International’s Douglas Trinowski was given the honor of presenting the lecture. His presentation was on “The Power and Need for Research in Metalcasting”. Doug gave an engaging presentation on past metalcasting research that has led to measurable improvements in the industry and focused on the need for continued research as supported by AFS. He also outlined many examples of critical needs and challenges in the industry that can only be resolved with organized research. Finally, Doug focused some time on how research is conducted in various countries and the need for improving the technical transfer process.

Doug is the former Vice President of Research and Development for HA International and the current Director of Special Projects. We are a successful organization today due in large part to the leadership of Doug and the contributions of him and his team over many years.

HAI Celebrates 15 Year Anniversary

April 14, 2016

While this is the 15th year since becoming HA International, we celebrate a rich history that dates back over 80 years. This year marks 15 years since Delta-HA and Borden Chemical successfully merged to create HA International. On their own, these two organizations enjoyed a rich history in supplying quality products and cutting edge technology to the North American foundry industry. For the past 15 years, HA International has leveraged these past successes to become the leading supplier of resins, resin coated sand, refractory coatings and additional product lines that support the industry.

We recognize that the industry is facing new challenges which we believe will open the door for opportunity. HA International�s philosophy, rooted in passion for performance, quality, consistency and customer focus, drives us to re-invent our products and services. This year we look forward to a pipeline of innovations, from updated product technology, to the recent launch of a customer facing app and modernized website. We are excited about what�s brewing at HAI and we look forward to another 15 years of sharing success with our customers.
