Kevin Williams, the former Multisol UK Managing Director has received a lifetime achievement award from the UKLA (United Kingdom Lubricants Association). The award was presented to Kevin by UKLA President and Multisol Chief Executive Officer, David Hopkinson at the recent UKLA Annual Dinner.
The honour recognises those who have made a positive and lasting impact on the industry and is awarded by the Board of Directors of the UKLA for an outstanding contribution and record of achievement over a sustained period.
In particular, this award recognised Kevin’s work and role on the Technical Committee of UEIL, the European lubricants industry association over many years, where Kevin worked to ensure an open market that benefits all of who work in the lubricants industry both in the UK and across the whole of Europe. He stepped down from his role as MD in February, following almost 22 years with the company, to pursue other interests and spend more time with his family.
“I am delighted that the Special Award of Council goes to my former colleague Kevin Williams for his services to UKLA and the UEIL Technical committee, where for 16 years he has championed the right of independent lubricant blenders and marketers to have access to OEM technical data,” explains David Hopkinson. “His efforts have helped to sustain a level playing field that benefits the entire sector and our end users in providing choice.”
