ACE’s Bill Dugary Receives ISPE-DVC 2016 Buz Lange Award

In December, ACE’s Bill Dugary received the 2016 Buz Lange Award from the Delaware Valley Chapter of the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE-DVC).

The Buz Lange Award was established in 1995 by John Cocco, first president of the Delaware Valley Chapter. Since then, it has been given to an individual in the Chapter who emulates Buz’s leadership, focus on innovation, teamwork, and service.

From the ISPE-DVC Winter Newsletter:

He [Bill] is a highly regarded, longtime, active member of the Delaware Valley Chapter. He continues to contribute to ISPE with engagement on all of our student focused committees and coordinates our annual involvement with the STEM promoting Future Cities Competition for middle school age students.

Bill volunteers with a number of other organizations and somehow finds the time to provide excellent development and engineering perspective for his company.

It was our pleasure to award this to Bill, as he exemplifies the nature of this award and embodies the reasons it was created.

Our congratulations go out to Bill. We couldn’t agree more!
