DEBERT – NS – On Friday, June 2, Fenestration Canada honoured Kevin Pelley, P.Eng and President of Kohltech Windows and Entrance Systems, with the C.P. Loewen Award at its Annual General Meeting in Halifax.
Fenestration Canada is the national association of window and door manufacturers, vendors and other stakeholders, focused on providing education, technical and regulatory resources. The C.P. Loewen Award is the most prestigious award in the window and door industry and is presented to an individual in recognition of their dedication, accomplishment and service to the industry.
Pelley has served on the Fenestration Canada Board of Directors for 13 years, including time spent as President, Past President and most recently Treasurer. With an engineering degree from Halifax’s Dalhousie University and an MBA from Saint Mary’s University, Pelley is only the 3rd Atlantic Canadian to receive this prestigious award. He has been instrumental in carving out the future of Fenestration Canada and has led Kohltech from its Debert, Nova Scotia roots to a world class organization across Canada and the US, with manufacturing facilities in Nova Scotia and Alberta.
The award is named after Fenestration Canada Past President C.P. Loewen, who played a key role in the development of the association and the advancement and sophistication of the window and door industry. He was an influential and respected man in many fields including industry, trade and business associations, labour government, church and the community. Kohltech (formerly Kohler Windows) founder Peter Kohler is a past winner of the award.
Receiving the C.P. Loewen Award is a great honour and accomplishment for Pelley and for Kohltech.
