AMT honors Rhoades.
Rhoades, 62, died suddenly and unexpectedly in April. The founder of Extrude Hone Corp. and of ExOne Co., Larry Rhoades was intimately involved in the AMT and its predecessor organization, the National Machine Tool Builders' Assn., for decades. His intense intellectual curiosity drove him to open new paths for association members, particularly in linking to resources in academia and the federal government. He chaired the group in 2002-03.
AMT's board first presented the Al Moore Award to James Farley, the SpeedFAM founder who served the association in many positions throughout the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. Its second recipient was Raymond Blakeman, who formed Met-Coil Corp. and was involved with AMT since 1950, serving as its 1989-90 chair.
