The Power Transmission Distributors Association (PTDA) has named James T. Moore II, a former president of Detroit Ball Bearing (later known as Invetech), the 18th recipient of its Warren Pike Award for lifetime achievement in the power transmission/motion control (PT/MC) industry.
Moore received the award, named for PTDA's co-founder and first president, at the association's annual Industry Summit in Palm Desert, Calif. The award was established in 1984 to honor individuals who have demonstrated outstanding, continuous, long-term support of PTDA and the PT/MC industry.
Moore spent his distinguished career with Detroit Ball Bearing/Invetech, eventually becoming its president. By the 1990s, the company ranked as one of the industry's largest PT/MC distribution firms. Moore retired after Invetech was acquired by Applied Industrial Technologies in 1998.
During his most active years with PTDA, Moore was noted as being a bridge-builder between multiple constituencies.
