Presidents Medal Honour

Peter Davys, managing partner of Orrest Business Solutions and a well known figurehead in the UK chemical industry has been recognised by Len Jennings, outgoing President of the Oil & Colour Chemists Association (OCCA), with the awarding of the President's Medal for his contribution to the association and the coatings industry in general.

As an active committee member of the OCCA Manchester Section, Peter has been heavily involved in the development of training plans within the coatings industry, the development and expansion of the OCCA Manchester Section and the continuing success of Surfex, the UK exhibition for the surface coatings, printing inks, adhesives, corrosion and construction communities.

Finally, your major contribution to the success of our recent Surfex exhibitions has been noted and recognised. Again, it is not so much the work in itself, as the drive and enthusiasm that you bring to the business of selling the concept of Surfex that is so well merited. Without it, Surfex and OCCA would be the poorer."
