ACPA presented its 2019 Marlin J. Knutson Award for Technical Achievement to Paul Jaworski, Product Manager, Minnich Manufacturing, Inc. The award is presented in recognition of Jaworski’s more than 40 years of expertise in concrete vibration and consolidation technology.

“With direct involvement and contribution to virtually all the significant inventions and technological advancements of concrete vibration technologies, you have earned the reputation of being an expert, thought leader and trusted advisor in the art and science of concrete consolidation,” says Gerald F. Voigt, ACPA President & CEO.

The Marlin J. Knutson Award for Technical Achievement is presented to an individual or group who has made significant contributions to advance the development and implementation of technical innovations and best practices in the design and construction of concrete pavements.

This award is named in honor of the second chief executive of the American Concrete Pavement Association. Marlin J. Knutson served in that role from 1985 to 1998, and during his tenure, was a staunch advocate for technical service and technology transfer. The Knutson Award for Technical Achievement has been presented since 1998.
