The MPIF says that Dr Randall German has been selected to receive the Kempton H Roll Powder Metallurgy (PM) Lifetime Achievement Award.

German is the founder of German Materials Technology and has developed the research of net-shape fabrication of engineering materials via sintering techniques as used in PM, cemented carbides, and ceramics. He has also promoted the growth of PM technology during his 50-year career through his involvement in 12 start-up companies, supervising well over a hundred graduate and post-doctoral students, and prolific PM industry publications. German has also been an active member in APMI International, the American Society for Metals, and the American Ceramics Society. He received the MPIF Distinguished Service to PM Award in 1993 and was one of the first APMI members to be awarded the prestigious APMI International Fellow Award in 1998.

The Lifetime Achievement Award, named after Kempton H Roll, founding executive director of MPIF, was established in 2007 in order to recognize individuals with outstanding accomplishments and achievements in the field of PM and related technologies.
