W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa.-ASTM International Committee A01 on Steel, Stainless Steel and Related Alloys has honored Kenneth Orie of Hidden Valley, Pa., with the ASTM Award of Merit and accompanying title of fellow. The Award of Merit is the highest ASTM honor for individual contributions to standards activities.

A member of ASTM International and Committee A01 since 1995, Orie was specifically cited for his service and leadership as chairman of Subcommittee A01.11 on Steel Plates for Boilers and Pressure Vessels, a group that plays a critical role in the pressure vessel industry. He currently serves as producer vice chairman on A01 and as vice chairman of the executive subcommittee. He also works on multiple subcommittees, including the USA Committee for International Standardization of Steel (A01.95), and chairs several task groups. The committee recognized his contributions with the Award of Appreciation in 2009.

Orie began his career at Lukens Steel Co. (now ArcelorMittal USA) in Coatesville, Pa., after earning a bachelor's degree in metallurgical engineering from the University of Pittsburgh. During his tenure with the company, he held various supervisory positions that addressed quality control and assurance in the oil, petrochemical and refining, and power generation industries, and also worked on the development and marketing of value added pressure vessel steels and cladded products. He retired from ArcelorMittal as a senior metallurgical engineer in 2009.

In addition to ASTM International, Orie is a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and NACE International. He holds an M.B.A. from West Chester University, West Chester, Pa.
