Al Kay, FASM, is President of ASB Industries, Inc. Barberton, OH. For over 32 years, he has shown creative business initiatives focused on thermal spray processing; both for HVOF in the early 1980s and Cold Spray in 1996. With foresight, ASB Industries continues to transform to a technically advanced thermal spray and cold spray service provider with advanced technologies for processing and a vast array of machine tools to meet quality requirements initiated by customers across a broad spectrum of industries. Throughout the years Al has initiated involvement in many organizations to establish long-term friendships with companies across the globe. Al has taken many volunteer leadership positions, most notably the Thermal Spray Society of ASM International along with other activities with ASM.
