MEMA Honors Sen. Alexander and Rep. Knollenberg with Joe Magliochetti Industry Champion Award

Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) and Rep. Joe Knollenberg (R-Mich.) were recently honored as inaugural recipients of the Joseph M. Magliochetti Industry Champion Award, presented by the Motor & Equipment Manufacturers Association (MEMA) on May 5. The award, which was created to honor the work of legislators helping to advance the automotive industry, was presented at a special dinner during the first MEMA Legislative and Public Policy Summit in Washington, D.C.

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC — Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) and Rep. Joe Knollenberg (R-Mich.) were recently honored as inaugural recipients of the Joseph M. Magliochetti Industry Champion Award, presented by the Motor & Equipment Manufacturers Association (MEMA) on May 5.

The award, which was created to honor the work of legislators helping to advance the automotive industry, was presented at a special dinner during the first MEMA Legislative and Public Policy Summit in Washington, D.C.

The award was established in honor of the late Dana Chairman and CEO Joe Magliochetti, who passed away last September. Along with his 37 years of service to Dana, Magliochetti played a leadership role in many business and civic initiatives — including serving as a member and former chairman of MEMA.

The award was presented by Magliochetti’s son, Andrew, who was joined by Michael Burns, Dana’s new chairman, president and CEO, and Scott Meyer, president and COO of Ken-Tool and MEMA chairman.

During the award presentation, MEMA President and CEO Chris Bates recognized the two legislators for speaking out against the Section 201 steel tariffs.

“Sen. Alexander and Rep. Knollenberg stepped up at crucial times on behalf of our industry to speak out against the Section 201 steel tariffs,” said Bates. “These tariffs were devastating the automotive industry. Thanks to their extraordinary leadership, the tariffs were repealed. Our industry is fortunate to have two such great supporters looking out for our interests in Washington.”
