Composites One is involved in multiple organizations dedicated to the composites industry, including the American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA). Several members of our team are actively involved on the ACMA Board of Directors as well as several committees. Composites One President and COO Leon Garoufalis serves on the Executive Committee and Board of Directors and was awarded the ACMA Presidents Award in 2012 for his industry efforts. Garoufalis is also the Chair of the Composites Growth Initiatives (CGI). Greg Shymske, Vice President of Marketing, serves as the Marketing Chair for the Corrosion Council of the CGI committees. Director of Marketing Communications Marcy Offner was awarded the ACMA Volunteer of the Year in 2011 for serving on various committees and is also the Chair of the 2014 CAMX show. In addition, our HS&E Director Guy Rule is on the ACMA Governmental Affairs Committee, while Technical Support Manager Corbett Leach participated in the Chemical Processing Symposium committee in 2013.

Composites One is also a member of the International Cast Polymer Alliance (ICPA), part of the ACMA’s Composites Growth Initiatives. In 2012, Composites One Technical Sales Representative Ann Morris won the President’s Award for her work in the ICPA.

In addition to ACMA and ICPA, Composites One also serves as a member of various local SAMPE (Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering) chapters and supports SAMPE as a corporate partner.
