On October 9, Bill Davies, founder and vice president of Davies Office, received the 2019 Remanufacturing ACE Award from the Remanufacturing Industries Council (RIC) during its World Remanufacturing Conference earlier this month in Rochester, NY. This distinguished award recognizes Bill Davies’ contributions to the remanufacturing industry in educating others on the benefits of remanufacturing and sustainability. He is a nationally recognized leader in green manufacturing and expert in sustainable office furniture solutions.
These awards were given in three categories, based on RIC’s mission to “Advocate, Collaborate, and Educate” on behalf of the remanufacturing industry.
In addition to the award, Davies received a scholarship in his honor to be given to a student in the Capital Region of NY, encouraging a future industry leader to engage with the remanufacturing industry before graduation.
“This ACE Award represents a lifetime of work that I’m truly passionate about: Educating the public on the benefits of the remanufacturing process and its products,” Davies says. “I’m honored that what we do at Davies Office is being recognized for its impact on the industry and the planet.”
“I can’t think of anyone more deserving than Bill Davies for the Educate ACE Award,” says Vaughn Henson, vice chair of RIC and director of business development at SRC Holdings Corp. “Bill is a lead-by-example type of person and as a long-time proponent of reman, has selflessly helped pave the way for many companies in his industry. As RIC’s Chairman Emeritus, he has been an integral part of our growth.”
Founded in 1948, Davies Office is the largest office furniture remanufacturer in the United States, with more than 250,000 square feet of manufacturing and warehousing space and a staff of more than 170 employees.
