Meet the Newest Window Film Hall of Fame InducteeOctober 6th, 2016 by Katherine Coig
The International Window Film Conference and Tint-Off™ (WFCT) commenced yesterday morning with a welcome ceremony honoring the newest inductee of the Window Film Hall of Fame, Bill Burke. He was introduced by Ed Golda, president of Michigan Glass and the first inductee into the Window Film Hall of Fame.
Burke was recognized on his many achievements for the industry, including his help with stopping the U.S. Government from making film on cars illegal. Known to be a window-film pioneer, Burke began his career by starting his own film company long before others recognized it as a viable industry, and later becoming a member of the International Window Film Association (IWFA) where he worked to champion the use of window film.
The International Window Film Conference and Tint-Off™ is being held this week at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center and San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter in San Antonio. Stay tuned to www.windowfilmmag.com for more from the event, which continues through Friday.
I am so pleased to see that Bill has been recognized after all these years. I worked for him at Gila, Courtaulds and the IWFA and am so proud to his friend.
Congratulations Bill, you definitely deserve this award.
I am delighted to know that Bill has been recognised and honoured after so many years. Bill and I worked together in Garware polyester for USA brand global films and even then his known and contacts and the understanding of window film was phenomenal. I am so happy for him.
