Mestek Machinery honored the contributions of sheet metal industry veteran Joe Reitano Sr. of H. Weiss Machinery at a Jan. 21 dinner in New York City.

Held to coincide with the 2014 AHR Expo, the 30-plus guests — some of whom traveled from Australia and California — were assembled to mark Reitano’s dedication to machinery manufacturers Lockformer and Iowa Precision, and the overall sheet metal industry.

  Mestek President Bruce Dewey gave Reitano the Eagle of Our Industry Award to recognize his career achievements.
