This year’s event will kick off with the presentation of two awards, including Steel Executive of the Year going to Target Steel founder Val Simone. The honor, the oldest in the industry, is presented by the Association of Steel Distributors.

Hickey Metal Fabrication in Salem, Ohio, will be honored as the Fabricator of the Year, an award presented by FMA and its publication, The FABRICATOR. The awards will be presented during the day Feb. 28, with Industry Awards Dinner recognition later that evening.

FMA also has plans to visit two facilities as part of its Bus ‘n’ Bagels tour.
