ASTM’s committee on steel, stainless steel, and related alloys has presented its Award of Merit to John F Grubb, a consultant at ATI in the US. The award, which includes the accompanying title of fellow, is ASTM’s highest recognition for individual contributions to developing standards.

Grubb was recognized for his contributions to the group on flat-rolled and wrought stainless steel in areas of metallurgy and newly evolving technology.

A member of ASTM International since 2005, Grubb was previously awarded the Award of Excellence by the committee. He is also a member of the committees on nonferrous metals and alloys, mechanical testing, declarable substances in materials, and corrosion of metals.

Grubb previously held positions with Allegheny Ludlum and General Electric.
