APMI International’s most prestigious award recognises APMI members for their significant contributions to the goals, purpose, and mission of the organisation, as well as for a high level of expertise in the technology, practice, or business of the Powder Metallurgy industry. The 2020 Fellow Award recipient will receive elevation to Fellow status at WorldPM2020: World Congress on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials, Montréal, Canada, during the Opening General Session on Sunday, June 28. 

The 2020 recipient, Thomas (Tom) Pelletiers II, VP of New Business Development, Kymera International, has dedicated over thirty years to the Powder Metallurgy industry. He is the current APMI International President and has served on many APMI and Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) committees and association boards. 

In 2015, he received the MPIF Distinguished Service to PM Award. He was a co-chair for PowderMet2011 and several annual MIM conferences. Pelletiers has been a member of the MPIF Technical Board since 2000, chairing the Professional Development Committee. Additionally, he has co-authored various articles for the International Journal of Powder Metallurgy and ASTM Handbook Volume 7: Powder Metallurgy. He is a regular speaker at several MPIF seminars and the annual Basic PM Short Course. He co-developed lead-free machinable brass compositions resulting in two US patents and has performed extensive research on aluminium premixes.
