The Board of Directors and Executive Committee of INDA has unanimously voted to present the INDA Lifetime Achievement Award to the late Cos Camelio. Camelio, who retired last year as Technical Director of INDA, Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry. He passed away on May 29 at the age of 67.

The coveted Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented to Camelio's wife, Phyllis, in a special ceremony this summer. Camelio, who will be formally honored as well at IDEA10, in April, 2010 in Miami Beach, Fla., will also be installed in the Nonwovens Industry Hall of Fame.

“Cos Camelio was truly one of the pioneers in the development of the global nonwovens industry,” says INDA President Rory Holmes. “This is a well-earned honor for a wonderful and talented man who devoted his entire professional life to the advancement of the industry worldwide.”

Camelio served as INDA Technical Director for six years before his retirement one year ago. During his tenure he was heavily involved with the harmonization of standard test methods with INDA's sister organization, EDANA. He was also involved with both ISO and ASTM standards committees, shared the responsibility for the programs at INDA technical conferences and chaired a number of INDA committees. Camelio was instrumental in the development, in conjunction with EDANA, of the Flushability Guidelines that will be premiered at the WOW (World of Wipes) 2008 Conference, June 16-18, Chicago, Illinois.

Camelio started his career in nonwovens in 1964 with Chicopee at the Chicopee Falls location in Massachusetts as a shift supervisor and management trainee. He eventually was promoted to Plant Manager of the Chicopee Falls location and then to Northern Operations Manager. In 1975, Camelio transferred to Chicopee's nonwoven operations in North Little Rock, Ark. as plant manager of the staple fiber operations. In 1979, he was promoted to site manager with responsibility for both a wet-laid plant as well as the staple fiber operation.

In 1983, he joined Freudenberg Nonwovens as Vice President of Manufacturing with responsibility for two facilities, corporate engineering, capital budgets, and R&D. Between 1983 and 2000, Camelio held various positions within Freudenberg Nonwovens including COO and President.

Industry pioneers Lee Sullivan and Dr. Edward Vaughn received the IDEA07 Lifetime Achievement Awards and were inducted into the INDA Nonwovens Hall of Fame during IDEA07.
